Eternal 883 running up stairs 2[fulltext]=a&q[genre_tags]=+%22%22Emotional%22%22&q[type]=&q[duration]=&advanced=1

Our idea and storyboard will be one about advocacy.  We decided to relate to the viewers first.  The first link is an image of someone walking up stairs.  Our idea is to show images and videos of people doing every day things such as walking upstairs, using a cell phone, and even a simple daily routine.  Then we want to transition the focus for the audiences on some facts about spinal cord injury and paralysis.  After this, we want to bring in some positive light and find videos and instances of successes and overcoming obstacles from people living with such a condition.  The middle link is of a video of a man living with spinal cord injury.  It tells his story of how he got his spinal cord injury.  Then he tells how he overcomes some obstacles and gives a realistic picture.  At the same time, he is very positive and he promotes a wheelchair race.  We could take the parts of about how he overcomes obstacles or parts about his rehabilitation.  This sort of sends the message to the audience that they do a lot to help themselves.  The next part would be to video a video or way to express to the audience that this is not enough and that everyone should be helping anyway they can.  The last link it to the song.  The song is called, “All A Dream.”  I think it has a nice melody to it.  We could possibly use this song for the beginning with the collages, photos and videos of relating to people and/or for the parts where there will be facts about spinal cord injury and paralysis.  It sort of has the emotions behind it that we could match the fact with this song and how those simply daily routines may not be as simple for some people.
