Production Company, Mr. Pictures, producer Josh Reidford and director David McCracken join me to discuss the filming of their feature, Bullitt County, how people can help out if interested, how they work as a team when one lives in Evansville and the other lives in L.A. What Evansville is missing, and what they miss about Evansville.
Today’s sponsor is Optimal Rhythms, Inc.
Imagine being stuck in a body that couldn’t speak and couldn’t move when you wanted to move. Imagine being overlooked or underestimated every day of your life! This is the reality for many children on the autism spectrum.
At 8:00AM this Friday, an area non-profit organization, Optimal Rhythms, Inc., will be kicking off Make a Difference: Speak Only From Your Heart Day. Respected and influential people in our community are being nominated to give up their speaking voice for 24-hours to bring awareness to the more than 300 non-verbal youth on the autism spectrum in southwestern Indiana. Similar to the MDA Lock Up, those who are “Silenced” will collect pledges/donation to try to “buy their voice back”. Once they meet their funding goal, they can start speaking again and even nominate someone else to be “silenced” for the rest of this 24-hour campaign. Monies raised will purchase iPads, apps, and communication training for area children and families. If you’d like to help Make a Difference – Text SILENCED to 41444.
