One of the coolest new ways to fund arts and tech projects, Kickstarter.com, has recently posted an interesting project to create a movie about a mother and son’s experience living with Autism. This project Stay Then Go is going to give a human face to the challenges of moving from a child to a young adult in a society that does not understands autism.
STAY THEN GO will bring some light to these issues by way of a story- of a mother and her son. And not with statistics, expert talking heads, or case studies. Through, the power of art, and story-telling, we’d like to connect, to entertain, to puncture consciousness, and to move humanity along, just a little.
Documentaries with real people have the potential to reach a much broader impact than a mere recitation of statistics. This the first film project I, Brian Rowe, have contributed to on kickstarter, I am very excited to see how this project turns out. If this is of interest to you I recommend heading over to the Stay Then Go Page and pledging to help fun the film.
