DUI Public Service Announcement Shot in Bartlett ready for Viewing
ago when the Bartlett Fire, EMS and Police Department were filming the PSA showing the real horror of drinking and driving
it was hard to envision how the final pieces would fit together. Now, finally the video is ready for viewing and it makes
a powerful punch against its foe - drunk drivers.
Bryan Cottingham directed the commercials. Cottingham's son had recently
been in an accident involving drinking and driving. He was also great friends with Dave Brown, whose daughter and grandchildren
were killed by a drunk driver. Both men had a passion to get the PSAs made.
Spending hours in makeup the young
man and woman sat in the wrecked pickup, take after take, while the movie crew worked from every angle. The Bartlett Fire
and Police Department and volunteers from all around town joined in the project and helped contribute to the Public Service
Announcement being filmed in Bartlett. Shot in front of the Animal Shelter, the Public Works building was used as a home base
for volunteers and actors.
So here is the final product:
