@BREATHINGFILM: A #Documentary To Spread Awareness About #ALS #LouGehrigsDisease #MND - video interviews and trailer.


I AM BREATHING is a film about a man, when faced with the unimaginable, shares his own story in what he called, “a tale of fun and laughs with a smattering of upset and devastation.” Within a year, Neil Platt goes from being a healthy 30-something British bloke, with a great sense of humor, to becoming completely paralyzed from the neck down, due to the devastating illness he has inherited, ALS. As his body gets weaker, his perspective on life changes. His humor remains, but a new wisdom emerges:
“It’s amazing how adaptable we are when we have to be. It’s what separates us and defines us as human beings.”
Knowing he only has a few months left to live, and while he still has the ability to speak, Neil puts together a letter and memory box for his baby son Oscar and communicates his experience and thoughts about life in a blog (The Plattitude) - and in this film, which he was determined to make. The directness of his communication mingles with images of the sensory details of a life well lived, and makes us revalue the ordinary.
His blog posts form the film’s narration as he tells his own story through memories and impressions of his life - the sheer joy of falling in love, of partying with his mates, of fast motorbike rides. Through his determination to share his final journey, Neil makes us ask questions about our own lives.
Neil Platt was diagnosed with ALS in February 2008 by Professor Chris Shaw. Sadly, Neil lost his own personal battle with the disease a year later, but through his family, friends and this documentary he wanted to continue to raise awareness around this devastating illness…..read more about I AM BREATHING here.

What I Learned From Shooting Three Features in a Year by Tom Wilton of ProjectBootleg.com.

Maria and I sat on the roof of our new Queens apartment, talking over film
ideas. The summer was just checking out, and the days were starting to
shorten. But as we sat, talking over an idea, we watched the skyline of
Manhattan in the distance, thinking that just maybe we could get this
thing done before the weather would get too cold.

The concept was simple enough - Jeremy decides to propose to Steph on the
same day she chooses to break up with him. The story would follow the
two as they each confided in their best friends - Jeremy would have
Frankie (played by Maria), and Steph (played by Gillian Leigh Visco would have Ryan. I would direct, and together, Maria and I would write - our first screenplay collaboration…..
