SPOKANE, Wash. -Students at North Central High School are ready for summer. But before class is out, they’ll have a chance to be part of a film production about active shootings.
The movie “Beyond Lockdown” will be 12 minutes in length and is directed by former Airman at Fairchild Air Force Base, Randy Spivey.
“It’s a myth that students just snap,” said Spivey. “Almost always there’s a progression toward them being violent.”
Spivey says the first six minutes of the film will focus on active shooter prevention.
The second half will be about how to respond in a worst-case scenario.
“Lockdown is not a bad policy but it’s incomplete,” said Spivey. “We’re in the commons right now and if somebody comes with a gun you better have some sort of another tool than lockdown.”
Spivey will use a few dozen students as actors in the film.
He plans on releasing it at the end of July in 25 different languages.
