Ziff and ‘Martial Arts Kid’ cast praised for Anti-Bullying Message
Jennifer Fraser, a Co-Executive Producer on ‘The Martial Arts Kid” says she feels the film conveys a strong anti-bullying message – and feels the film’s Executive Producer, Dr. Robert Goldman and it’s young stars – Jansen Panettiere, Kathryn Newton, Brandon Tyler Russell and Matthew Ziff – have helped convey that.
Fraser, an Adjunct Professor at Montgomery College in Washington, DC, feels the film will help help people be “educated on bullying issues”, “(which affect) all the kids around the world.”
She thanks Dr. Goldman for helping make the project a reality and has nothing but warm words for him.
“Dr. Goldman…. “I have talked with him (a) few times”, says Fraser. “He loves to talk with many people”, she laughs. “He is a very friendly man.”
Fraser feels that although the film’s established stars – like Cynthia Rothrock and Don “The Dragon” Wilson – are important, the weight of the film’s ant-bullying message rests on it’s young stars – Jansen Panettiere, Kathryn Newton, Brandon Tyler Russell and Matthew Ziff – and that they have shown themselves more than up to the challenge.
“As for Jansen, Brandon, Kathryn and Matthew…they are great”, says Fraser. “I (am) happy (that they are) part of “The Martial Art Kid”, to show (what) bullying issues (there are that) will help to achieve (important goals) in schools.
“The Martial Arts Kid” is scheduled to hit theaters in 2015.
