The California Office of Problem Gambling, Friday Night Life, Betting on our Future, and Royer Studios present the 5th Annual Spotlight Festival. 

Youth from across California who have created, worked on, directed, acted in, produced, and supported projects for the BOOF campaign gather together every summer for the Spotlight Festival in Southern California. 

We spend three great days in informative workshops, participating in hands-on activities, producing live action and animated PSAs, and continuing to build skills in leadership, advocacy, team-building, public speaking, and project planning.

Royer Studios’ Vice President and Producer, Liz Granite, was this year’s keynote speaker, sharing her story of how problem gambling impacted her life and how others can protect themselves if a friend, family member, or loved one struggles with this - or any - addiction.

Representatives from agencies across the state are also on hand to offer their expertise and knowledge on the issue of problem gambling; as well as to view the awareness projects youth participants have worked on so tirelessly over the last few months.

This is a significant part of what we cover in Animate Your Awareness Messages, a workshop where students create their own animated PSAs on topics of social concern.

Timing (how many frames it takes to cover a distance) and spacing (the change in position between frames) are two fundamental principles of the art of animation.

Everyone knows we’re not supposed to multitask while driving, but do you know why? Refraining from texting, changing the radio, or talking to other people in the car isn’t just cautionary advice from your parents and driver’s ed teachers. It turns out your brain literally can’t focus on too much at once. Check out this short film from TED and Toyota to learn why.
