The credible action is to assist the creative team in attracting funding for the making of the film, which aims to go into production at the end of October 2009.
"Cyber Sin is targetted at teenage girls and boys, so having high profile celebrities attached to the project is a huge bonus," Evette said.
Cyber Sin is a four-minute promotional film that addresses the severity, longevity and domino effect of cyber bullying.
The timing of the sensitive subject matter couldn't be better as digital violence is happening to children and teenagers across the world right now.
In addition to celebrity endorsement the Cyber Sin creative team have also attracted the support of the Australian Suicide Prevention Foundation.
"We're thrilled to have Honorary Chief Executive, John Hardy, officially commend our efforts so far," Evette said.
Cyber Sin aims to increase world awareness about the serious nature of cyber bullying, and the potential dangers and consequences whether directly or indirectly involved.
"We wish to empower youth with courage and confidence to say no to bullying, as well as educate the community and encourage them to promote child safety and protection against digital violence thereby shaping a positive future for young people," Evette said.
The script is currently in the hands of the cyber section of the government for official and financial support after already giving their verbal support.
"We implore any individuals or companies to support the making of Cyber Sin by donating in either cash or kind. It's a win/win project because they get to help us give something back to the community as well as earn a professional film credit," Evette said.
Cyber Sin will be released in 2010. Anyone who wishes to help the making of Cyber Sin or for more information can contact Evette Henderson directly on (+61) 422 883 474 or log on to http://www.ozemag.com/
