Finding Community With AccesSurf
We spent a week in Hawaii filming the 2022 Hawaii Adaptive Surfing Championship (HASC). While we loved the competition, the sense of community that AccesSurf creates goes beyond the waves.
Helping Our Friend Pay For A Wheelchair Van
Wheelchair vans are EXPENSIVE. That is why we created a film for Scherrone and Jane Dunhamn. We wanted to help them tell their story of biting the bullet to help Scherrone stay independent. To donate to their fundraiser, visit their website.
Celebrating The OI Foundation And Its Impact
The Osteogenesis Imperfecta Foundation (OIF) is very special to us. Our director Ryan Wilson, has OI, and we collaborated with the OIF in helping them share valuable, life-saving anecdotes and medical information. We created the above video, and distributed it across multiple platforms to grow the underserved community of persons living with OI.
Going Fast And Experiencing Nature In An Adaptive Mountain Bike
We had the honor of filming Catalyst Sports‘ 2021 Adaptive Mountain Bike Tour. We helped Catalyst Sports tell the story of the lives they were changing. We joined them on a nine-city adaptive mountain bike tour across the southeast, and interviewed persons with a range of disabilities who experiencing nature in a new way. We created nine videos in total, and landed Catalyst on the news multiple times. To see all of our videos from the tour, go here.
Capturing Trust Between Visually Impaired Skiers And Their Able-Sighted Guides
All of us, in some way, shape or form, have to trust people. For persons with disabilities, they at times have to rely on individuals for very personal tasks, like showering, using the restroom, and changing clothes. Ryan Wilson has needed to trust and rely on strangers for such tasks, and we wanted to find a way to illustrate this visually. We collaborated with the US Olympic and Paralympic Committee to create a short film on the trust that exists between visually impaired skiers and their able-sighted guides. They rip down ski slopes untethered and separated by six feet, and, if disaster were to strike — ie a VI skier taps a rock — the consequences could be lethal.
