OVERVIEW – In Les’ Words
So am asking all who I are mentioned so far to give me their permission to use their image or images. Respond to this post please. Everyone will have a opportunity to see and approve their image in the draft movie before it goes live. There are many others who I am aware of who do not have images on this site. Would be very powerful to showcase as many people as possible.
I have yet to consider the best way to put these together but having images evolving and merging together with relevant text. Short burst of words and poetic lines written by the individuals would be great. If someone is seen with family, playing a musical instrument or painting relating text could be used. Or any other activity where facilitation plays a small or key part. Apart from communication these are other things ISAAC seems to not want to know about. The final movie will accompany the petition we put up in change.org.
If you have images of yourself and want to be part of this please post onto this thread. Try and aim for high resolution and clarity please. If possible the image could be accompanied with a short section of your writing. Just a few lines can be powerful. If you know of others who could be included and may miss this post please draw it to their attention.
All Forms Of Communication Are Valid & Meaningful
I feel that everybody should have the right to communicate no matter what way it is shown and/or expressed Les’ words are very true and his drives and emotive words are just that people who use FC and/or AAC are using this as a genuine, meaningful, productive and integrative form of communication with their family, friends and loved ones.
