A Documentary In The Making
Goals for the Project
1. Funding the documentary
We are currently in the process of raising funds toward the making of the documentary. All projects need funding and ours is no exception. Please help us with your contribution. Once the funds have been raised, we then will begin working in earnest on the material for the documentary.
2. Making the documentary
We will methodically acquire lots of filmed material for the documentary, including interviews with young adults with disabilities, disabled veterans, senators and congressmen, highly successful people with disabilities and high ranking officials in the military and the Veteran’s Administration. We will take all the time that is needed to put together a meaningful and moving documentary.
3. Distribution and Circulation
Once the documentary is completed, we will work toward finding distribution sources to help with circulating and viewing it. We will also work toward aligning with a not-for-profit organization that will carry on with the activity that organically results from the reaction to the film by the audiences.
4. Legislation Toward Policy Change
We hope that the documentary will begin a conversation in our country that eventually will lead to legislation and policy change, allowing people with disabilities to be eligible for military service, and allowing many of those wounded soldiers with permanent disabilities to remain in the military if they choose.
5. Culture Shift
We hope to help bring about a major positive shift in the psychology of the American public with regards to all people with disabilities.
