The ‘My Little Sister…’ Films
My little sister (who happens to have Down’s syndrome) and I are very close and I started documenting our lives together when I was 8, and she was 4. Every year I edit together footage from the last year into episodes. I will do this every year throughout our lives. Hopefully they will improve in quality as I get better at making films and get better equipment.
“I want to show the world the magic moments we share together. I love to teach her things, and share the joy of her achievements and successes. She is the best little sister I could ever have and we have the greatest fun together.”
I have been shocked to hear that anyone could have a negative view of people who have this condition, and shocked that some people could imagine that someone’s life is worth less than anyone else’s .Take it from me. This is not true. Not in the slightest. Please watch and share my films and share them. I hope that I can do my bit through my film making to change any negative attitudes about D.S. that might still be lurking out there.
I love making films, I spend hours and hours making films and I want to be a professional filmmaker. My mum and Dad say: “Find out what you love to do and get on and do it!” So that’s what I do, and the more I do it, the more I learn and the better I get at it. So for me making films is the best way to show what I want to say about the great life I have living and learning with my little sister (who happen’s to have Down’s syndrome) I really appreciate and love to receive your comments & feedback on my films and hear about anything to do with film that may be useful, supportive and inspiring to me.
