DOCUMENTARY HELP WANTED




I am looking for a film maker or
a few to help me collaborate on a documentary project that I would
like to do on myself, on the issues and barriers I face as a person
who uses a power chair. Because I have only partial use of one hand I
face a lot of obstacles trying to gain either work or figuring out
where to take my future. I have become a artist who likes to work
with video and photography but because of my disability I have not as
of yet gotten enough experience in either of these fields to be able
to apply for funding myself.


I am working on many media projects
looking at accessibility and one of the projects I would like to do
is a documentary of a higher calibre than I could produce by myself.
I do have video and media experience and I would like to collaborate
at all levels and use the production of this documentary as a
learning experience. I do have a GoPro camera that is capable of
professional quality footage [up to 4k] but I don't have the computer
equipment to process the high quality data so that's why, up until
now, I have just used it in a more automatic process high definition
form that has been simpler for me to edit on my own with my
accessibility modified computer, which is okay for most of the media
projects I have taken on up until now.


I do believe, to make a stronger
documentary, that it would be better to work with at least another
individual to give me another camera operator, editor and somebody to
collaborate on the storyline of the documentary to make the story
stronger and to give a defined direction. I would like to share some
of the production credits on this project. I know that this project
will take a little while to produce because we still need to find
funding after I find all the people who are going to help me with
this endeavour. My eventual goal is to make a documentary that is
strong enough to get into HOTDOCS and other film festivals, to share
the message of accessibility barriers with a wider audience. If you
are interested, contact me at arcohoon{-AT-]gmail.com or on Twitter
at @arc23. Thank you very much.

Stairs

      If you've ever been going along and have been stopped by a large flight of stairs, like and share.
     If going to a party, stairs have made you tardy, like and share.
    If a flight of stairs has led you to go to the back door because you're just too "special" for the front door, like and share.
  If you've ever had to use a stairlift because the designers of the building are none too swift, like and share.
  If you've ever gone into a shop with one step, and the shopkeepers think you can magically fly over it in your chair, like and share.
  If you've ever had to be carried up a flight of stairs, and they thought you would not care, like and share.

Help make the World #moreaccessible

Attention Media Reporting on Accessibility News and Culture -

     I am writing this open letter to encourage all media to consider devoting one or two pieces a month of coverage to stories relating to accessibility and the culture that surrounds it. For those of you who don't know what I mean by "accessible" I am talking about disability, but that is a term we as a community are trying to get away from. Right now, most of the news reported by the major news sources seem to want to make accessibility a health-related issue, which is not always the case. Sometimes that can actually take away from the message of the story.  That's another trend I want to encourage everybody to get away from.

    I would also like to encourage the media to bring a wider lens to all aspects to disability. For example, we have roles in all sorts of genres of art and media. We can also bring a fresh perspective to a lot of issues. It would be very helpful for the programs that specialize in arts and entertainment stories to give some time to accessible art projects and accessible artists on a monthly basis.

   When the CBC cancelled their disability-issues  program "Moving On" they promised to integrate accessible stories into their news, arts and current affairs programming on CBC Radio and television and since that time, the amount of coverage we have gotten has greatly diminished. So I encourage the CBC to put more of an effort into covering accessibility issues even if that means instituting a monthly quota on all their platforms (i.e. Two stories a month/per platform) to start.

     I also encourage all the major broadcasters to have at least one reporter who specializes in accessibility issues. I really believe that this will help everybody have a greater understanding of accessibility issues.

Thanks

A Call To Action For All: Shovel The Snow And Save A Life

A Call To Action For All: Shovel The Snow And Save A Life: For those of us who use wheelchairs and other devices, have mobility impairments or are seniors, unplowed sidewalks, streets and walkways are a major accessibility issue. At best, we are trapped indoors unable to leave home to go to work, school, appointments or wherever we were planning to go.At worst, we are forced to put our lives at risk when we have no choice but to wheel in the street to avoid impassable sidewalks. Often, folks who use wheelchairs get stuck in the snow and must depend on the kindness of strangers to rescue them. This has happened to me and many of my friends countless times.

I consider the art I make beautifully palatable but most of it usually has an accessibility theme of some sort. I also believe my art is best created when I can effectively collaborate with the tracker or the other individuals who are assisting me. When I am working well with other people, we can effectively bring out each others strengths. All the skills that I have learned while creating my art, whether it be visual art, photography, video or digital storytelling, I have been able to apply to other areas of my life
