    In the autumn of 1998, a profound tragedy echoed through a small Michigan farming town and twisted the well laid plans of a young prodigy in strange and inspired ways.

The delivery format is high quality m4a files via Dropbox sent to your PayPal email address. Soundtrack features 5 tracks, and runs roughly 10 min. ____________________ Far and away in the chilling northern reaches of Michigan farm country lived 16-year-old Andy Phelps: an anomalous prodigy with a colorful resume. Andy juggled knives and fire for mass audiences, hand-made wood furnishings, thundered his motorcycle through the Midwest, captained his hockey team to a State Championship, and taught himself to unicycle and fire-breathe...all before turning seventeen. But late one autumn morning in 1998, Andy broke his neck and consequently lost the use of his hands and legs. Over a decade later, what should have been the last chapter in the life of a fabled prodigy became the first page of a new story, where against all odds he became the only known quadriplegic in an unexpected profession. ____________________ The process of bringing Juggle & Cut to life was one of the most challenging and ultimately rewarding projects I've ever been apart of; I hope you receive as much from hearing Andy's story as I did while assembling it. Many thanks to Andy's brother David Phelps, Eric Machiela, Eric Johnson, Wlad Marhulets, Adam Burd, Chad Terpstra, Seth Herman, and all of our incredibly generous Kickstarter supporters. We wouldn't be here now without every one of you.

    • Soar // The Quadriplegic who reached for the sky.


      from stillmotion Added 56.3K 1,198 52

      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.

        A new study in Nature reports that two people with tetraplegia were able to reach for and grasp objects in three-dimensional space using robotic arms that they controlled directly with brain activity. They used the BrainGate neural interface system, an investigational device currently being studied under an Investigational Device Exemption. One participant used the system to serve herself coffee for the first time since becoming paralyzed nearly 15 years ago. Video credit Mike Cohea/Brown University.

          Tattoo model Malice McMunn came through for a body painting session a couple weeks back. I'm paralyzed and I use my mouth to hold the brush. I messed around with editing before my accident but this was the first time I finished an editing project. It felt good and was nice to be able to do it on my own. I'd like to thank Malice for coming through and Damien Luvara for filming and the photography. Check out BennyDIAR.com for all my paintings and updates on my recovery..

          • STILL RUNNING - Pieter du Preez short film


            from Silver Bullet Productions Added 14.9K 137 8

            'Still/Running' vividly chronicles how Wings for Life World Run ambassador Pieter du Preez overcame a tragic cycling accident - which left him paralysed from the chest down - to become the first ever C6 quadriplegic to complete an Iron Man triathlon. It recounts this exceptional sportsman's battle with the kind of spinal cord injury that the Wings For Life foundation is aiming to cure. We witness the determination that enables Pieter to juggle a grueling training regime, a white-collar career, and the fully independent life he shares with his wife Illse, to record-breaking effect. A truly inspirational film about the human spirit triumphing in extreme adversity. Directed by Wayne de Lange and Sven Harding for Silver Bullet Productions. All shot on a Sony F55 with a few water shots on a 6D and GoPro.
