Appearing with anchor Kiren Chetrey, Hirsch talked about the things that he has hoped to achieve in making the movie. “How can you make somebody hear what it means…to be that kid that’s getting punched,” he said.

The Bully Project is a character driven film will actually follow the lives and stories of students across the country starting on the first day of school to the last. The film will also delve deeper into some of the tragic stories that have garnered national attention due to suicides, school shootings, and other acts of violence.

WIVP has supported Hirch on the project since its early stages.

“The things that are not seen by adults, maybe we can change that conversation.”
