Gregg Burmeister

Gregg Burmeister (d/b/a Score One Productions) is an independent writer/director/producer with over 40 years’ experience in the video industry. As a result of a horrific crash that occurred near Campbellsport, Wisconsin, Gregg and individuals directly affected by this senseless & avoidable crash were moved to do something about it, and Speak Up to Slow Down was born. A common theme in SUSD is that nothing good happens when speed suddenly encounters the unexpected because SPEED KILLS!

 

Gregg Burmeister showcasing the dangers of driving for teens

Gregg wrote, directed and produced a video documentary about the Campbellsport crash in hopes of saving future teenage lives. The title reflects a “call to action,” and urges both parents and teenagers to embrace the message to ‘Speak Up’ to Slow Down after learning what happened that fateful night. So far over 1.3 million viewers have watched Gregg’s Campbellsport documentary.

 

“The key element to better decision making must include parental involvement and that requires communication between parents and their teenage sons and daughters,”

 

 

Burmeister specifically wanted the parents that lost their daughters in the crash to speak directly to other parents. “My goal was to create in-home conversation about accountability and responsibility as a driver but just as important, to understand the possible consequences if you fail to ‘Speak Up’ as a passenger when you do not feel safe. The Campbellsport story is about avoidable lifelong devastation. Kids don't get it. They think they're invincible so it's up to parents to watch Speak Up to Slow Down WITH their sons and daughters if we are to avoid similar family nightmares.”
