    Jason Kingsley was a young boy with hair the colour of chocolate, and tan, sun-soaked skin. Growing up in Lawrence, NSW, Jason spent his summers in the nearby coastal town of Yamba. These were fond memories, until one day – one day when sand became his enemy.

            My speech from my brother's Memorial: My brother and I were six years apart, so we always had an interesting relationship. We loved, and fought, like brothers frequently do—especially in my younger years. Fourteen years ago, Troy got into a car accident that left him quadriplegic. But, it isn’t the accident that stays burnt into my memory. What still stays with me, and haunts me, is our cars crossing each other on the same day of his accident. As we drove by, we flashed the sign for “I love you” out our windows. We’d just begun to grow closer. We’d just gotten to the ages where some of our interests were beginning to align. That relationship was stripped from us in an instant. I stayed at the hospital for the next two weeks while my brother was in the ICU. Then, on December 21st (my 18th birthday), I was sitting with Troy ready to open up the first birthday present that he’d ever purchased for me—he’d just bought it earlier that month. While I was with him I was talking to him, praying with him, and just sitting by his side. All of a sudden, he started blinking in response to what I was telling him. My brother woke up from his coma on my birthday. As Troy worked through his recovery in the following months, I had to go back and finish my senior year of high school. My parents and Jeff Smits stayed with him when I couldn’t. Optimism continued to rise for my parents as they saw Troy be able to breathe on his own, and they began to plan physical therapy treatments. Eventually, Troy came home from the hospital. It was an emotional time for me, and I’ll always remember the wheels of his chair rolling over the “Welcome Home” mat that we had at the front door. People came in and out to visit with Troy, and pray for him, but he stayed in a pretty dark place. Before his accident, he was a handsome, starting pitcher who was just about to finish college. The cliche, “His whole life was ahead of him” doesn’t seem to describe how much potential he had. Having all of that taken away over night was a tough pill for him to swallow. Going through some things that Troy had written, he had come to a turning point in 2009 where he decided that he wasn’t on the path that he was meant to be on. He began to pray for God to work within him and change him. I believe that God answered his prayer because about a year later, Troy began reaching out to me, and he began to post prayers and testimonials on his Facebook page. As his family, it was easy to convince ourselves that the Troy that we knew was gone after the accident. He wasn’t quite the same person that he was, he wasn’t able to do the same things, and in fact, the Troy that we had gotten to know and love for 24 years was no longer there. But in his place was this new soul that was more humble, more family oriented, and more grateful for every moment that he got to spend with those he loved. Unfortunately, this was a new Troy that I took for granted. I wasn’t there for him every day, every week, or even every month. Though, every time that I did show up, the joy on his face was unmistakable, the pride that he had in me was clear, and the love that he had for my wife and children was almost parallel to my own. 
When I was younger, I idolized my brother and sister. I wanted to listen to the same music, wear the same clothes, and drive the same cars that they did. Through my teenage years, I ended up having all of those things. But it still didn’t add up to what made them so special to me. Even looking at my brother’s pictures now, it is difficult to see him as someone who was once younger than I am now. I still see him as a role model, and I still feel like I’m not quite equal to what he was. When I was young, I tried really hard to get the attention of my siblings. I tried my best to be someone who they could appreciate. But, with the difference in age, it was difficult. Troy wrote to me eleven years after his accident and said, “I feel as though I wasted so many years, nearly 18 to be exact, by not taking advantage of having such a wonderful brother!! I regret every moment that I could of been spending with my ‘lil bro’.” Three years after that message was written, the tables have been turned. Now I look back at how much he wanted to spend time with me in his later years, and I was too busy with work, or with my family to come stay by his side. I missed an opportunity that I can never get back. This is something that I will carry with me for a while. But I am comforted in knowing that he will be waiting for me. One day, we will be like the brothers we should have always been. Brothers who didn’t cross paths at the wrong time. Brothers who can go into eternity and fight all that comes their way. We will be a force to be reckoned with.

                    During my trip to Melbourne, with the help of Maribeth, we found the story of Dave Jacka, one of the most inspiring people I've ever met. He could teach us all something about the power of the mind and in setting goals. And, oh ya, he's quadriplegic with only about 6% of his body function. Dave's full story as well as an exploration of goal-setting are all explored on the blog. Want to know how the NBA all-time leader in free throw percentage achieved a remarkable 90.4% success rate? Or how the seemingly impossible 4 minute mile took hundreds of years to surpass, yet the moment it was broken, 37 people broke it in the following year. http://stillmotionblog.com/powerofthemind/ ‎ This piece was shot on the Red Epic with a 24-105, 24-70, a 24mm Cinema prime, and a 35mm f1.4. Shot during a during a day in Melbourne. Special thanks Maribeth Romoslo, one of our associate producers, who actually found this story and made contact with Dave. http://hellosunshinefilms.com Chantelle Baxter of One Girl http://www.onegirl.org.au who helped develop the story and took over interviewing so I could shoot. Li and Jack of Lensure Cinema and Photo www.lensure.com.au for volunteering to help us out on the shoot. This story is definitely much stronger because of their time. Corinne Maunder of Fire Films - http://www.firefilms.com.au/ for lending us her lights on such short notice.

                      Stake In The Heart is the first music video by The Atlas of Tears, copyright 2014. The Atlas of Tears is a rising musical phenomenon; the brainchild of Lee Bullock; a native of Hobart Australia. At age five Lee became a C3 quadriplegic after being hit by a car. Paralysed from the neck down he requires a team of dedicated carers to survive. More ambitious than most, Bullock has shown immense resilience to overcome massive hurdles and rise above his paralysed body to achieve what many only dream of. Unable to physically play any instrument and breathing difficulties preventing him from singing, Bullock uses his computer by voice activation. He collaborates with musicians to bring his demos to life and his ambition is to collect a group of talented musicians together so that the music of The Atlas of Tears can be played and enjoyed live. The Atlas of Tears released their debut 6 track EP in 2014. Start Point is an inspirational beginning to the amazing story of Lee Bullock. Feel free to make contact with Lee.
