Easter Seals Disability Film Challenge
Look for this film at a
festival near you!
You're going to love ThunderTally Media's entry! The genre options were either Documentary or Mockumentary - so of course we went for the FUNNY!
The Challenge took place over 5 days. On the first day the organizers announce the theme and required props, and concluded 5 days later at 6 p.m. We have reshot some of the film and are submitting a new cut to the festivals.
One of the primary goals of this program is to change
the way disability is viewed in media by giving filmmakers the opportunity to collaborate and tell stories that showcase disability in its many forms. The Best Awareness Campaign is an amazing way to get all of these films seen by as many people as possible and raise the visibility of disability in entertainment!
A wonderful byproduct of people becoming more aware is that they can make hiring decisions that include considering people with a disability.
Our team has several disabled people on the cast and crew, you can read about them below!
