"This Is Me?" is a 6-part documentary web series (in five to eight-minute episodes) that tells the remarkable story of Matthew Sanford - a paraplegic yoga instructor on a mission to heal trauma, loss and disability.Confined to a wheelchair since a car accident left him paralyzed and with extensive internal injuries at the age of 13, Matthew works tirelessly, advocating for the benefits of yoga and mind body medicine and giving people courage to reconnect with their broken bodies and souls and to participate in their own healing. His national reputation and yoga studio have attracted an unlikely band of followers; a paralyzed acrobat, an ALS patient and a group of female prison inmates to name a few. "This Is Me?" tells their stories with beauty and intimacy as they struggle to reclaim some sense of who they were before they were "broken."Our budget for six episodes is $82,000. We're accepting donations in any amount and are offering full and partial episode sponsorships starting at $2500. The series will air on a dedicated You Tube channel. A DVD of the entire series will be available for purchase upon completion. Please contact Director Andrew Walton at andrew@waltonfilms.com with questions.
