I have an announcement to make about my documentary. It has been a long time getting to this day, but it is close to having the first 13 minutes ready! Our film guy, Dan, is working on putting some more scenes into the film and my song For Strength. When that is done it will be ready to show. I hope to have it done for camp in July. It will help introduce me to groups, so I don’t just show up and have someone start talking about me. That is always awkward. I have worked hard with my Mom and Gregg and Dan to get it just right, because it is about me. I want to make sure that it is accurate. I wrote the script over a year ago.
The woman who I chose to be my voice, has a brother who has autism, and went to school with my friend Elizabeth. We may make a longer DVD at some point, but for now, I’m just going to have the first 13 minutes. I hope it helps people see those of us who are non-verbal in a different way..that our lives are not all that different on the inside than others. It will be fun to share it with everyone.
