Hello, Parkinson’s Warriors. This is what happens when a dream begins dying thanks to Parkinson’s – you keep the dream going by doing the dream! I have always dreamt of being a filmmaker. I have a bachelor’s degree in film and a master’s degree in screenwriting. I was making documentary films in the 2000s, but then by 2011, Parkinson’s told me “enough!”. Well, I’m proud to say that I am telling Parkinson’s “enough!” and making movies… short films for now, but I hope to turn my latest short film, A Room With A View, into a feature film. The story is about a young woman who is diagnosed with young-onset Parkinson’s, and her life falls apart. Sound familiar? I based it on my own story, but this could be the story of any one of us.
Here is the trailer: https://vimeo.com/760887893
The film will soon be making the rounds of the film festivals, and then hopefully it will be released, or I will raise money to film a feature-length version or a combination of the two. Here’s to never letting your dreams die!
