The script is based on the Samuel Goldwyn award winning feature film "Who's Driving Doug," which Michael wrote while attending UC San Diego. This short is being funded by the writer and his family. We would like to raise funds to help offset some of their expenses as well as pay some of our team members who are currently offering their time for free. 

This is a passion project for us; we would like to see the writer's work appreciated by a greater audience. We would also like to put a project out there that talks about disability in a unique way. This project doesn't tiptoe around the issues; the lead characters are people with disabilities. They are full characters who are dealing with life in the same way that all of us have to: one laugh and one heartbreak at a time. 

Risks and challenges

Finding locations that are handicap accessible and within our budget has been extremely difficult. We plan to search for the appropriate locations, but if necessary, we will modify an existing apartment or condo to fit the needs of the script.

In addition, many of the people on this project are working for free because they believe it's a wonderful project with a powerful message. Though we will never be able to offer them what they deserve, we would like to give them a small token of our appreciation.
