I just finished this mini-doc for Adult Cerebral Palsy Hub in celebration of World CP Awareness Day. The film is made up of 20 Zoom interviews with people who are changing perceptions of the condition and achieving great things in life.
The original plan was to interview the participants in a studio or in their own homes, but the threat of a second wave of Covid-19 meant that we had to take the party to Zoom instead. I'm not going to pretend that shooting on video conferencing software with a cantankerous internet connection is every filmmaker's dream, but in this instance the inspiring stories and characters shone though to make this a very special film.
Whether you have CP or not, these guys are an amazing example of where determination, persistence and empathy can get you, even when the odds aren't stacked in your favour.
