My name is Aaron Brander and I am a graduating senior from the Digital Media Department at SUNY New Paltz. For my senior thesis film I am putting together a documentary highlighting adaptive sports and athletes. The main subject of the film is named Tyler. Tyler lost his legs in a motorcross accident when he was in high school. Today, not only does he adaptive ski, but he also bikes and plays ice hockey. He has become an inspiration to others including one girl who lost the use of her legs in a similar accident last year who went to Tyler when she wanted to get back on a bike for the first time. We are trying to fly the two of them out to Colorado for an adaptive ski week and get her on skis for the first time since her accident! The piece is supposed to be extremely inspirational and highlight the love that these athletes have for what they do.
We are currently looking for sponsors to help us pay for equipment, travel, lodging, food for the subjects, music, etc.
The film itself will be entered in a lot of different student festivals as well as other festivals. It also will have an amazing soundtrack with a few high profile artists featured on it.
Every dollar helps! Feel free to contact me with any information!
Thank you for your time,
