Documentary on Cyberbullying Films in California

The film crew and the producer for the new documentary Submit: A Virtual Reality of Cyberbullying will be landing tomorrow in California to set up their film studio on location in my Pleasanton offices.

The Submit team is venturing out from Atlanta to the Bay Area to interview Pete Sarna the Oakland Unified School District Chief of Police about his new mobile messaging support system, a teen that had a personal experience with cyberbullying, and myself about the importance of becoming proactive about parenting around technology to avoid the dangers of online harassment.

I’ll also be discussing ways parents can take control of the wild wild web to help keep their children safe and secure while they’re online and using mobile devices.  I’ll be sure to drop a few hints about my new book “The Parent’s Guide to Texting, Facebook and Social Media” due out March, 2011. 

Check out the trailer for the film:

Expected to be released in April of 2011, the producer’s goal is to showcase the documentary at various film festivals, and eventually take it to the big screen.  


Shawn Marie Edgington is Americas leading “Texpert” and cyberbullying prevention expert.  She’s the author of “Read Between the lines: A Humorous Guide to Texting with Simplicity and Style” and “The Parent’s Guide to Texting, Facebook and Social Media”, which is slated for release in March of 2011. 

 Shawn has been profiled on Fox Business, Fox News Radio, in the San Francisco Chronicle, View From the Bay, KRON 4 News, NPR, CBS Radio, The Leslie Marshall Show, InfoTrak, The John Carney Show, Mom’s the Word, The San Diego Union, American Cheerleader Magazine, CNN Radio and dozens of radio stations around the country.

After a personal experience she had with her 16-year old daughter being threatened by text and on Facebook, she’s made it her mission to help parents “parent” around technology. Her solution?  Shawn’s created The One-Click Safety Kit, a turnkey program that helps families defend against sexting, online predators, cyberbullies and textual harassment.
