The groundbreaking mobile application STOP-ATTACK was a presenting partner at the GBK Oscar Celebrity Gift Lounge on February 20th and 21st. STOP-ATTACK CEO Anthony Bright presented his innovative assault-response app to a profusion of guests. The two-day event featured some of the biggest names in Hollywood and generated quite the buzz with media and celebrities. The STOP-ATTACK lounge area was not one to be ignored, capturing the attention of everyone in its vicinity.
The talent at this year’s Oscar Gifting Suite was overwhelming in their positivity toward STOP-ATTACK, sparking awe and inspiration in Producer Nigel Lythgoe (So You Think You Can Dance, American Idol), Henry Sanders (nominated film Selma), Keir O’Donnell (nominated film American Sniper), actor Mekhi Phifer (Divergent, Paid in Full), Martin Landau (Ed Wood, The X-Files, Entourage, 9), nominated film Boyhood cast members Zoe Graham, Jonathan Sehring, and Libby Villari and nominated Boyhood director Richard Linklater, Rob Steinberg (12 Years A Slave), Dave Anders (The Vampire Diaries, Once Upon A Time, iZombie), Khandi Alexander (Scandal, CSI), Empire cast mates Trai Byers, Grace Gealey, and Kaitlin Doubleday, and Black-ish star Yara Shahidi.
Day two of the Oscar Gifting Suite experience set a trend of praise with STOP-ATTACK gaining traction from nominee Colson Baker (nominated Best Original Song, Machine Gun Kelly), Vincent de Paul (House of Cards, The Bay), Mad Men’s Robert Morse, Kristen Renton (Sons of Anarchy), Nick Wechsler (Revenge), Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos, Goodfellas, The Basketball Diaries, Rizzoli and Isles), Cortney Palm (The Purge), Shanola Hampton (Shameless), Christina Milian and daughter Violet (Christina Milian Turned Up!), Amy Landecker (Transparent) and cast from Beyond the Lights.
STOP-ATTACK was successful in sharing and creating a platform against bullying, domestic violence, assault, and rape and shared official STOP-ATTACK umbrellas with each celebrity talent for the unpredictable L.A. weather. The team also gifted customized T-Shirts, tank tops and a convenient sling backpack that everyone simply adored.
Much like Mr. Bright and the STOP-ATTACK team, The Academy shares a passion for bettering our society and supports other film-related organizations and institutions, provides opportunities for high school students – and movie fans of all ages – to further their understanding and appreciation of movies and the moviemaking process, and works to encourage interaction between public filmmakers of all types.
The STOP-ATTACK assault-response app comes packed with potentially life-saving features and can be activated using hot-keys or by touching the app’s icon. Upon activation the app is placed in a stand-by mode and with one touch of your screen your device begins a video and audio recording session.
The application goes beyond being able to record physical and verbal abuse comes equipped with options for a flashlight and alarm possibly preventing assailants from taking any further action.
Along with providing evidence to bring perpetrators to justice and spreading the word on threats walking among us, STOP-ATTACK offers options to dial emergency services and a user-designated Panic List of contacts who can be notified of an attack at the user’s discretion as well as be allowed to view attacker footage.
User privacy is not compromised with STOP-ATTACK. All recordings are stored to a secure and private cloud and are only visible to the user and their customized set of contacts. Users also hold the sole ability to download and manage or delete recordings, holding true to STOP-ATTACK’s mission to give their members control of every situation.
STOP-ATTACK is suitable for people of all ages because, it is easy to use, and is perfect for parents hoping to gain peace of mind for their children or an adult walking in a parking garage late at night.
Mr. Bright has a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science and a minor in Business Administration from Upsala College. He is a member of the International Bullying Prevention Association and a Harlem Black Achievers Award Recipient.
