Sticks and Stones, a video that has been lost in the ashes of pre Internet days (1992) and is no longer available anywhere else is presented here with permission. My son Cameron was one of the actors, and Larry Turner the Director is a family friend.

The video is 12 minutes long, and uses streaming flash (FLV), all but the slowest connections should be ok.

Larry Turner, a graduating senior at Colonel White High School (1993) in Dayton Ohio, won the first place award of $500 and a $3,000 scholarship in the National Scholastic Art Competition for Film and Video. His film "Sticks and Stones", which deals with sexual abuse, child pornography and teen-age prostitution, also won the top prize in the Ohio Governor's Art Exhibition in May 1993. He received his award from First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington D.C.  Larry has many other movies and awards to his credit.
