Documentary short: Moving Forward After Spinal Cord Injury

A video profile of Billy Price (C-6 quadriplegia)

This seven-minute video features Billy Price (right), whose life was upended 12 years ago when he sustained a C-6 complete spinal cord injury as a freshman in college. As he narrates his journey with quadriplegia —the traumatic early days, the challenges and achievements—we see the images of his present day life: driving to his full-time engineering job, living in his condo, tailgating with friends before a football game, and continuing his passion for skiing.

We hope to produce more short videos like this showing a variety of individuals with SCI—different ages and injury levels, men and women—living full and satisfying lives after SCI. Is this a good idea? Please give us your feedback:
