Maddy’s Film

Posted by


Fifteen-year-old Madeline from Port
Augusta recognized the importance of driving safely and wanted to spread the
message to her friends so Maddy decided to make a short two
minute film about the dangers of drag racing at traffic lights to enter in
Girlfriend magazine’s ‘are you an actionista?’ competition; and also educate everyone else her
age on this serious topic… So Maddy, tell us about your award-winning short
film. “My short film was about unsafe driving and to show teenagers how easy
it is to lose everything.” So why did you make this short film? “I
decided to enter the competition to help educate others and the prize was really good to!” The moving video has since received national
acclaim winning Girlfriend magazine’s ‘are you an actionista?’ competition.
Maddy’s short film was chosen out of hundreds of entries for its creativity and
more importantly, the messages it portrayed. What were you hoping to portray
in the video? “I hope my film can help younger drivers to be safe on the roads.” Why are
you so passionate about road safety? “I’m passionate about road safety because it’s terrible to think how many young
people are involved in accidents.” Do you think your short film will help
others be safer on the road? “I hope my video influences other people to drive safely as I tried to put a lot of effort into
making it seem as realistic as possible.” Madeline is only fifteen years old but when
she applies for her Learner’s Permit she already knows the importance of staying
safe on the road. You can watch Maddy’s entire video on the mylicence
