Filmmaker looking for stories and experiences of dating as a disabled person
Hi all. I’m a student filmmaker and I’m currently doing preliminary research for a documentary focused on the subject of dating as a disabled person. I think the lives and experiences of people with disabilities, beyond just the scope of the disability in a medical context, are extremely underrepresented in popular media. I myself have Aspergers and this certainly has a strong effect on my dating life.
I’d love to hear any stories or anecdotes about your dating experiences that you’d like to share either in the comments or through a private message if you don’t want to share with the whole forum.
I’m also interested in conducting preliminary audio interviews on the subject, please contact me if you’d be interested in giving an interview.
Finally, as part of my pitch for the documentary I’d like to produce a short (1-2 minute) animatic (sketched storyboard video) based on one of these stories. If you would consent for your story to potentially be used as a basis for this video please mention in your comment.
Or you can contact me for an audio interview that I can use to base the video on (matching the storyboard to the audio of your story) or even record the story yourself and send it to me (you can private message me for my email address).
