Fourth Period Burnout goes National on CBC

FPBO cover

With back-to-school almost upon us, watch The National on CBC, Friday, August 31, 2018 to see our doc, Fourth Period Burnout. (Unless it’s a big news day!)

High school students today have to balance heavy workloads at school with increasing pressure to succeed. Fourth Period Burnout pools the creative energies of three youth — Juliette (16), Daniel (18) and Theresa (15) — and their mentor, Madison Thomas, to create a short documentary about their day-to-day experiences with stress and burnout.

Directed by Madison Thomas, produced by Angela Heck.

The full version is available to view in Canada on and YouTube
