Rock Band Features Newport High School Students in Anti-Bullying Music Video
Victor Spoils, a Cincinnati-based rock band, has filmed its latest music video with an anti-bullying theme in collaboration with Newport High School (NHS) and its drama program.
NHS drama students performed in the video and created props that were used throughout the song. Newport Students also creatively worked with the video's director and learned the many facets of filming and creating a music video.
Band members Aaron Ellis, Doug Lee, and Josh Neugebauer said the video will accompany their new single, "Bully," which has messages of positivity, kindness, and being oneself. The students help demonstrate these messages through various scenes in the video.
