About this submission
Small-town Indiana parents Tom and Tina Felter and their 25-year-old daughter Emily, who happens to have Down syndrome, set out to educate first responders and the greater community about how to communicate with individuals with Down syndrome and other disabilities in a presentation called “The Emily Talk.”
This is a fundraising sample I have put together. This sample introduces viewers to Emily, Tom, and Tina and shows some examples of how Emily interacts with the world around her. It also introduces The Emily Talks, which will be expanded upon greatly in the full film. Footage still needs to be professionally color-corrected and graded, sound mixed, and stabilized. Essentially, this six-minute sample is a brief entry into the Felters’ world and how they use that world to educate others, particularly first responders.
