“Josh” – a documentary short film

Josh Vander Vies

When a dear friend and colleague asked me to contribute an episode to her web series, “Ripple,” it didn’t take long for me to think of the perfect story to tell.

“Ripple” is a web-based TV program that features ordinary people leading extraordinary lives. It’s about individuals who, by virtue of who they are and what they believe in, have had a positive influence in their communities. Josh Vander Vies is one such person.

Josh is an athlete, artist, law student and motivational speaker. He’s a young man with big dreams… but that’s not what makes him special. Josh was born with a disability, that for some, might have been an excuse not to try and excel in life. Josh talks about being nurtured and supported as a kid, which encouraged him to set high goals for himself and achieve them… no matter what.

“Josh” is a documentary short film about one ordinary day in an extraordinary man’s life. It’s a reminder that while we all have challenges to face in our lives, we must “do what we have to do in order to live our lives to the fullest.”

“Josh” premieres on July 1st 2011 on www.ripplemakerstv.com.

Here’s a sneak preview.
