Learning to Drive

Plot Outline:

Michael has always wanted to drive a car, just like his mother and his brother Red; the problem is he has Down's syndrome. "Learning to Drive" follows the struggles of two divergent brothers during a road trip to release their mother's ashes at the Grand Canyon, during which Michael is determined to convince his caring but controlling brother Red to teach him how to drive. In a dramatic, sometimes humorous turn, he takes it upon himself to prove his resolve, forcing Red to face his own fears, let go and just be Michael's brother.

This is a story I’ve wanted to tell for 15 years which is inspired by my ever-evolving relationship with my developmentally
disabled brother, Andy. You can learn more about him and even see a video about him at the IndieGoGo campaign! You'll also find information about our crew, budget, and the treasure chest of perks we're offering to those who contribute to the campaign.

We are already off to an exciting start including contributions from Steve Martin (yes, THAT Steve Martin), veteran cinematographer Jacques Haitkin (he shot "A Nightmare On Elm Street" among MANY others), and Oscar winning filmmaker Haskell Wexler!

Please help us gain exposure by liking, following and sharing our campaign. Remember, if you can’t contribute just yet, please share our campaign with your friends! The more interaction between you, the public and us the production, the more IndieGoGo features our efforts.
