1. A video wishing my son Daniel William Prescott a happy 21st Birthday. This beta version, very raw and unfinished was released 24hrs before a celebratory Halloween. birthday, reunion party. The party takes place at the Clocktower Pub, Torquay on the 2nd of November 2013. It is a ticket only affair, the only way to get a ticket was to appear in the video; 250 people did.

  2. I set out on a mission to video 250 birthday greetings for my son, Daniel's 21st birthday. I am throwing a party at the Clocktower Pub in Torquay on the 2nd November 2013. Tickets were gained by being inclusive of the video. At the time of writing it is not known whether Daniel himself will be attending, it is most likely not. I did not have enough time to get the video widely spread enough for him to become aware of it. Next year maybe?

  3. An iPhone recording of a meeting I had with Dan at Hannah's Farm, a former agricultural college turn into a local charity . Louise had heard from a colleague that he had seen Dan there. Believing he might be going there on a regular basis during the summer I went there three times to see if I could spot him. On the third, I
    did.

    Having been told for the previous twenty months that he does not want to see me and is scared of me, I did not want to force myself onto him. That is why the first seven minutes are of me stood outside the classroom (all of which are open to the public) to see how he would react when he spotted me.

    After seven minutes, although it might have been longer (I didn't think to record a video straight away) he beckoned me in; to show me a picture he was holding up. It was too far away for me to see so at his request I went over to him. The footage from that on point speaks for itself.

    Interestingly, the staff at Hannah's Farm have been told that there are Court Orders against me. There aren't. The only Court Orders that exist are the two I fought for when he was under eighteen. Sadly, those legal avenues are no longer open to me. I'm told that to fight this through the courts would cost me £25,000.

    It was only after getting home and realising the significance of the picture he was holding up that the title of my documentary was born, "Finding Danemo".

    I will always be Marlin to his Nemo.

My quest as a father to resolve the issue of my separation from my special needs son Daniel. Dan and I are like Woody and Buzz, more appropriately like Marlin and (Da)Nemo. There being no affordable legal route to achieve my goal of reestablishing our connection I will document my struggle so that others may see 1) my resolve and 2) the difficulties and injustices that decent fathers have to contend with.

From my previous experience, even if legal options were available, they, as I've learned to my considerable cost in the past, count for little or nothing. By taking the route that I am WHAT do I have to lose?
