“Getting Up: The Tempt One Story”
After being diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs Disease in 2003, fully paralyzed LA artist Tony 'TEMPT' Quan, a legendary LA graffiti artist, social activist, and publisher gets his creative voice back through an unlikely friendship with a perfect stranger- Mick Eberling. Mick organized a crew of hackers and artists to invent a low-cost, open source DIY device that would let Tempt create art with his eyes. Getting Up is a documentary about the life of artist Tempt One and the quest to give him back his ability to do art. It asks the question, ‘How does a fallen man get back up?’
“Down Under Mystery Tour”
This comedy follows an intellectually-disabled film director, who wants to make a TV show featuring two blondes traveling around Australia, but he is forced to use disabled actors instead and must resort to sabotage, violence, voodoo and murder to get them off his set.
