About Behind The Flame-

Behind The Flames is an interactive- educational project showcasing a behind the scenes perspective of a short documentary known as Alarming Truth.  As student filmmakers, we were challenged with the idea of producing a piece that would captivate students nationwide to create awareness about fire safety on college campuses.  Alarming Truth was produced in part with Rowan University's Radio/ Tv/Film program, The Clery Center For Security on Campus and The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Motive behind Producing Alarming Truth-

     As filmmakers, producing Alarming Truth was important to us because every year students nationwide are perishing due to campus-related fire. In a study conducted by the Center for Campus Fire Safety, researched proved 10 students passed away annually of campuses fires. Many times, the causes of these incidents could have been prevented if students were educated on these topics. In Alarming Truth, Zack, the lead characters dies of smoke inhalation and very serious burns. However, what makes the content compelling is Zack’s death through the irresponsible action of his friend smoking a cigarette. Fire Safety is everyones responsibility—and as passionate filmmakers, we believe Alarming Truth will persuade college students to change their behavior and make better decisions for tomorrow generation because it starts with US.
