    Thumbs up New film about disabled guy who must solve a mystery!

    My new film “Crips Not Creeps” has been released online! The film is about a guy with Cerebral Palsy who must solve a mystery.

    Synopsis: A few months after the events of “Only Those Who Limp Allowed” Brandon and Randy(who both have Cerebral Palsy) are still living together and things are going well, until Brandon gets accused of stalking his ex girlfriend Madison and must prove he is innocent before he loses Randy’s trust and possibly everything else he has ever worked for.
    Please note that the use of the word “Crip” (which is a shortened version of the word cripple that people in the disability community use as a slang term to refer to physically disabled individuals)is not meant as an offense to anyone who is physically disabled(such as the characters in these films) or mentally disabled or otherwise. All of the characters in the film who are disabled are played by actors who are disabled in real life. Film is fully copyrighted to me.

    Feedback is welcomed.

    Thumbs up Two Thumbs Up!

    Excellent venture!

    Good story ~ a broken romance, competition, misunderstanding, the relationship between Randy and Brandon, trust/mistrust, resolution. You captured quite a bit in 20 minutes!

    I liked the establishing shots in the city, and the ambient noise (bus and dog barking), which gave the film grit. Surroundings can become characters. I also enjoyed your use of flashbacks and the film technique you employed to distinguish them from "real time."

    I am left with wondering about Madison. Did Brandon explain to her what happened? A part of me wants this resolution for Madison.

    I enjoyed your opening with Brandon running to the audition, while showing the audition in progress. Clever.

    Well done! I know that you worked diligently on this film, and my hat is off to you! Kudos!

    Love & Light,

    Rose
    Mom to Jon, 48, (seizure disorder; Gtube; trache; colostomy; osteoporosis; hypothyroid; enlarged prostate; lymphedema, assorted mysteries) and Michael, 32, (intractable seizures; Gtube), who were born with an undiagnosed progressive neuromuscular disease and courageous spirits. Our Angel Michael received his wings in 2003 and now resides in Heaven. Our Angel Jon lives at home with me and Jim, the world's most wonderful dad.

    Great film! I really liked the two leads - you have some great actors. Like Rose, I think the city scape worked well as background and incidental shots. Great story!
    Thanks for sharing :)

    THANK YOU SO MUCH Rose! I'm so thrilled you love it! There was an earlier draft of the script where Brandon talks with Madison but it was cut because of issues with story flow and some of the old lines from the scene with Madison were used to create Brandon's letter. I will keep the note about Madison in mind for the future. I definitely wanted to show more of Brandon and Randy's relationship so I am glad that came through in your viewing.

    Thanks so much Donna! Yes the lead actors have improved on their acting skills for this film. I'm so proud of them!

    Just so everyone knows a new version of the film was enhanced with higher visual quality. http://cripvideoproductions.tumblr.c...uality-version I'm not sure if the earlier lower quality upload will be deleted or not. I think everything will stay as it is because I can use the different versions in different situations. I'll keep you all updated if anything changes with the upload links. You can share the enhanced version on social media etc if you like. I don't mind at all.
