A Breakout Year: 2012

Wheelchair Chronicles 016

It’s been a while since my last post. I decided to take a little break after a grueling quarter at DePaul, finishing up shooting the film and other personal things I was dealing with. With the year coming to an end I wanted to look back at the great year that I had. I consider this year to be a breakout year for me because of the things I was able to accomplish in my life.

It was a breakout year for me because I finished shooting my film that was three years in the making. I never thought during my college career at DePaul that I would be making an actual film and better yet, finish shooting a film. A year of work has put me in a position to tell my story to the world, an opportunity to make a name for myself in the film industry. I really proud of the work that I accomplished this year.

This year I also got a chance to meet some new people who share the same passion for film making as I do and has inspired me to push myself and work harder than I’ve ever worked before in my life. I’ve also met others who have touched my life and have been proud of my work and what I’ve done in my life. Those people have given me the courage to be myself, to be the person that I am today.

2012 has been great to me. It has set me up to do bigger and better things in 2013 with my life. I’m putting together my team to help me finish my film and hopefully I will have my film all done by the spring of 2013. After that I’ll immediately go back to work on another film project that I’ve always wanted to do and now I have a chance to do it. I’ll continue to work on this blog and improve it, to give my readers a better understanding of who I am and my film.

Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa, Merry Christmas, Feliz Navidad  and all that good stuff.

Hey everybody welcome to Justin's Wheelchair Chronicles. This is a blog that's dedicated to my documentary The Wheelchair Chronicles. I'm 36 years old and I'm a proud graduate of DePaul University. Currently I'm of member of Access Living's Young Professionals Council. This film is a journey into my life and the struggles, the obstacles that I go through in my wheelchair. I'm doing this film not only to show people who I am but I want to have fun filming my crazy adventures in the city of Chicago.
