Wheelchair Chronicles Update

It’s been a couple of months since I last posted and a lot has happened in those two months that I need to get everyone caught up on. I recently announced the name of my new media company called Cooper Industries, a company that focuses on my filmmaking, photography, and production work (which I’ll go into more detail in a future post). I’m collaborating on a couple of media projects that are disability focus and will start early next year. I’m also working on putting together a web series continuing where the wheelchair chronicles left off and I’m very excited to be working on that and you’ll find out more about it because it’s in the early stages.

The main reason I’m writing this is because I’m gonna be making some pages to the Wheelchair Chronicles site and also the Facebook page. I feel like it’s time to make a few changes.

Thank you all so much for your continued support of me and your support of the Wheelchair Chronicles, I really appreciate it!

Film Update

2017 is shaping up to be a huge year for me and The Wheelchair Chronicles. This year my film will finally be released and I’m so excited! So my plan is to do a private screening of the film (featuring my edited version) for friends, family, and supporters of my long journey. After that, I plan to launch a Kickstarter campaign that will go into hiring professional editors, a composer, and hiring people to do marketing and promotion so I can submit it to different film festivals across the city of Chicago and the state of Illinois. I’ll be providing more film updates in the coming months and posting more personal stuff on this blog as well. Thank you to everyone for their continued support!

Life Update

It’s been a long time since I’ve written on my blog. Since I finished my film back in February, it’s been on my external hard drive waiting to be released to the public. However, my life has been very busy and I haven’t been able to showcase my work. Since February I’ve had a bigger role in my young professional’s council group at Access Living, I joined a couple of groups there as well. I was involved in putting together the disability pride parade back in July and I also took an entrepreneur training course at UIC during the spring/summer. During all this time I was going through some issues with my body that was making my life a living hell. So my plate has been full and then some. I feel like I’m constantly letting people down because I’m asked when my film is coming and all I can say it’s coming soon but then I realize people understand what I’m going through and continue to be excited about this project that’s been four years in the making and I really appreciate their enthusiasm and it makes me work harder to give the people what they want and that’s the wheelchair chronicles.

Major Announcement

It’s been a while since I’ve written on my blog, but it’s been for good reasons. Today however, I wanted to announce that The Wheelchair Chronicles will be done at the end of September. I can’t believe I’ve finally gotten to this point. All the hard work, the blood, sweat, and many tears I put into this project and now it’s coming to an end. I will provide updates on all of my adventures very soon.

Thank you all for your support!

Wheelchair Chronicles Film Update

As much as I don’t want to do this, I have to put completing my film on hold. With trying to finish up school, my time has been stretched out and I just don’t have the time to fully focus on finishing my film at this time. It’s a real difficult decision to make and it’s hurting me so bad now but I’m so close to graduating and I have to fully focus on that. It hurts because I’m so passionate about my first film and I don’t want to let you all down because you’ve been so supportive of me but school comes first.

Thank you all for supporting me and supporting my blog and supporting my film

Important Update!

Hey everyone, hope you all had a great week! I’ve got a couple of announcements to make and a major update regarding the blog. Let me start first with the update. I changed the theme for my blog and the reason I changed it because I wasn’t really comfortable with the previous theme and in the end, I ultimately decided to it. 
Now on to the announcements. For the blog I plan to post again twice a week Monday & Friday. The reason I’m doing this is that I have more time in the summer now to posts more material on the blog. Even though I’m taking a couple of classes at DePaul during the summer, I do have more time to not only work on the film but also the blog as well.
My plan is for Monday to do a blog post on certain documentaries that I like and I’ll share my opinions on why I like it and how it effects my film. On Friday, I’ll post film updates and I continue to do my What A Film Should Be Like series.

Also for those who read my blog can you please leave a comment either on the blog at the end of my blog posts or on Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, etc. because I really want some feedback on what you all like or dislike about my posts. That way I can work on improving the blog and giving my readers good quality content.

Thank you all for continuing to support my blog and the film.
