Production Overview: YOU GOT THIS is a short Glee-style video created for CONNECT Spartanburg – a teen pregnancy prevention initiative designed to inspire youth to make healthy choices.  Filmed in a theatrical style, this project requires young actors to be able to act in a stylized manner.

Set in the present day at “generic high school,” the story is about Jazzie and Sass who need to resolve a sexual health issue at a teen pregnancy prevention clinic.  The purpose for the video is to teach young people where to access resources for sexual health.

To submit yourself as an EXTRA, email our producers: Louise Fagan: louise.fagan03@gmail.com and Chantel Aguirre: caguirre@email.uscupstate.edu.  Please indicate which days you are available — we will be giving preference to those who are available all 3 days.
