In March 2012, the Centers for Disease Control announced that 1 in 88 children are diagnosed with autism. This has drawn global attention with over 71 percent of Americans expressing interest in learning more about autism alone. More and more autistic students are sharing their stories through social media, but only few have shared experiences of overcoming their daily challenges. We aim to capture a student’s ambition of how he/she aspires to overcome autism by looking at their past, present, and future. This film is targeted towards those families impacted by autism.
This film and website are the base of our funding campaign. We want to raise 4,000 dollars by mid October and we need your help to pull it off. Our Kickstarter will be up shortly and you will find it above in the menu. We will continue to keep you posted. And if you know someone who may fit the description of our main subject, please give us a shout!
Thank you for your interest! Spread the word!
M. Cary Brown, Director
I have a passion for helping people share their stories through film. I strive to unite and mobilize my generation through its own love of truth. I love working with people and helping them achieve their creative ideas. I have always had a passion for autistic students and their achievements because I feel I can relate to them through my childhood.

My name is Noelle Cruce and I am a senior at Huntington University. I have been involved in film for 8 years now. My passion is for editing because I love putting pictures together and creating a story. I have a heart for helping people and I believe that every one has a story that needs to be told. That is why I am involved in this project.
My name is Alex Kight. I am 20 years old and from Greenwood, Indiana. Filmmaking has been a passion of mine for the past five years since my junior year of high school. Coming to Huntington University, I was one of two freshmen students that was able to direct and write a freshmen film. Currently, I have directed, produced, and wrote eight short films and am really excited to be part of this documentary. I am hoping that this will be a new challenge that will push me past my limits and help bring about new filmmaking abilities in the process.
