The Other Side
In recent years, we’ve seen a rise in social conflict throughout the United States between law enforcement and the community. Many of the stories we’ve heard have been one-sided, negative in tone, and not advancing change…So Amazing Studios decided it was time to bring these two sides together and have them talk with each other, instead of ‘at’ each other.
Amazing Studios has helped bridge communication between generations and highlight the importance of conversation in a complicated world. This on-going series uncovers stories about life, love, greatest fears and tough decisions from both sides. Watch all episodes at www.otherside.tv

The studio approached the Fuquay-Varina Police Department and Officers Only by Bob Barker Company about the idea for The Other Side and they were onboard to make this series happen. Our Director screened police officers and students from local elementary, middle and high schools to narrow the talent down to 8 officers and 8 students. In order to maintain authenticity, we kept this series unscripted and instead provided cue-cards with questions to prompt dialogue. Each party saw and read these questions for the first time when the sat together on set, encouraging real conversation to happen and opening the door to vulnerability, emotional highs and lows and overall understanding of people in the community.
The series has had remarkable support on Facebook and social channels since the launch in January 2017.
We are very appreciative to our partners and sponsors who helped make this happen. Sponsor: // Officers Only by Bob Barker Company // Partners: Fuquay-Varina Police Department, Chick-Fil-A Fuquay-Varina, The Fuquay-Varina Elementary School, Middle School and High School, Capstone Production Group
