MARK ORMROD - No LIMBits

Mark Ormrod became the first surviving British triple amputee during the conflict in Afghanistan while serving as a Royal Marines Commando on Christmas Eve 2007. 

At 24yrs old whilst recovering in hospital Mark was told that he would spend the rest of his life in a wheelchair & need to employ a full time carer. After the initial shock of that news Mark decided that he wasn't going to let someone else's opinion become his reality & set about proving those people wrong in a massive way.

Working with former Royal Marine, turned photographer/film-maker, Matt Elliott, they now intend on producing a full length documentary showing all aspects of Mark's life and his incredible journey over the last 9 years. 

The film will cover Marks story of his injuries, how he overcame them, how he threw away his wheelchair on June 9th 2009 & went on to become a Husband, a Father of 3, a motivational speaker, a gym owner, a sponsored athlete, an author, a celebrated fundraiser, a mentor, a coach & a whole host of other areas of his life.

The filming will take place over a 12 month period and all funding will go towards equipment costs, production and expenses. This is a non-profit venture.

At this stage in his life Mark now feels confident that it is the right time to answer all of the questions which he regulary receives via social media or other channels & to create a film that he hopes will inspire and motivate not only others who face adversity but anybody who watches it to show them what they are trul capable of achieving no matter what life throws at them.

Risks and challenges

As this is a collaboration between film-maker and subject we have already planned a skeleton storyboard and all the 'key' elements which will be involved within the final production. At present our only challenge will be to involve all the 'significant' people within Mark's journey. This may involve a large amount of travel costs.
The Kickstarter funding is to ensure this project gets off the ground and gives us a firm base to make this documentary a reality, and we will still be looking at further funding options as we progress.
It is the aim to release this film by the end of December 2017, Mark's 10 year anniversary since being injured. Depending on how big this becomes/everything is in the 'can' the release date may be delayed to ensure the best possible outcome.
