Our goal is to create an authentic, genuine story about the evolution of a father daughter relationship after the father is diagnosed with ALS. We are drawing upon the inspirational and incredible stories of the families we have met with ALS to incorporate their stories in our film.
Adagio is a music term meaning slow moving. The title is based on our protagonist, who loses a connection with her father after they lose their ability to play the piano together as his disease manifests. She transitions from a daughter to a caretaker role. The two ultimately learn more about each other than they ever anticipated.
ADAGIO will be filmed February 12-14, 20-22 in Orange County and will premiere at Chapman University's Dodge College of Film and Media Arts on May 1st.

Any extra funds left over from this project will be donated to the ALS Association
Risks and challenges
Despite our research and passionate team, there are always risks associated with filmmaking. Our challenges will be to find creative ways to portray the day to day routine of living with a family member with ALS and to surround our actors and set with as much aid and equipment as possible.
To fully realize the authenticity and vulnerability of this story, we require funding to secure a talented, passionate cast and surround them with realistic, true to character production design and locations.
We are an ambitious team and are confident, with your support, we will be able to realize this project and provide perspective about living with ALS.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
