For Elizabeth Harrington being completely blind will not stop her from pursuing her dream of becoming the next greatest Hollywood film director.
Elizabeth was born with anophthalmia which means without eyes, her eyes are prosthetic. However, this doesn't stop her from following her dreams. At a very young age she has directed a children's film called 'Super Kids Super Heroes' and has been credited as assistant director. Her dream is to become a spokesperson for children with disabilities.
Elizabeth is believed to be among the youngest blind filmmakers worldwide. The young director joined award winning Hip Hop filmmaker Tim Greene and journalist/producer Kevin Wilson for a new documentary. The making of the film is on its final stages and to finance the finishing touches they launched “Here We Come” a Kickstarter and Indigogo projects where backers pledge money in exchange for great gifts. For the dreamers, their goal is to turn this movement into an inspirational and motivational series “that will send smiles around the globe and help give voice to the voiceless”. The proceeds will finance the finishing touches, soundtrack and post production of the documentary.
Aside to the backing projects, the directors have open auditions for “Oscar worthy” musical talents with disabilities. They're providing a platform to undiscovered musicians regardless their physical conditions, featuring their talent on the soundtrack of the documentary. “Together we can find the next Stevie Wonder or Ray Charles. We know the musical talent is out there and together we will provide a platform for them to shine” said Tim Greene.
Please visit Tim Greene's website for more information on this new documentary or to learn more about Tim Greene works. If you know someone with disabilities that wants to be considered for the documentary's soundtrack send the video links and biography to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like to contribute with this inspirational project please visit Kickstarter or Indigogo.
