We've finally broken away from the East Coast! Michael John Carley put us in touch GRASP's Chicago chapter and a number of amazing individuals responded; John, Ben, Wendi, and Jack. Only this time I was all by myself (lights, sound, camera & interview). Whew!
Boston and Fort Walton
This week we managed to expand our shoot both north and south along the East Coast. First, we met with friends, Kassiane and Stephen, who were participating in a conference at the Boston Higashi School. Then, a long trek down to Florida to talk to Suzanne. Remarkable stories and footage while wading in a swamp!
DC and New York
Let the filming begin!

This past week marked the official start for Neurotypical - our first 3 interviews; John, Dave and Karen. It feels good to finally put something "in the can" after thinking about it for so long. I have a feeling the official end is going to be much more difficult to pinpoint.
We need your help!

Since neurotypicals make up the crew of the documentary Neurotypical, we are appealing to the autistic population for a dialog relating to the film’s content as it unfolds. It is precisely this discussion that will give form and meaning to this project. Please consider but don’t limit yourself to answering the following questions:
-What thoughts would you like to convey to the audience about the challenges associated with having autism?
-What are your strengths and interests and how do you express them in your daily life?
-What has been most helpful to you as you’ve grown into adulthood?
-What do you consider to have been least helpful or even detrimental to your overall growth from childhood?
-Are there additional subjects/topics you are interested in discussing?
We welcome this opportunity for an exchange.
