    I can’t tell you how thrilled I am to be named a finalist! Much of the credit has to go to Stillmotion, whose TAC and EVO workshops forced me to think through what I was trying to accomplish, and gave me access to such an incredible array of learning resources – especially the human ones! THANK YOU, Stillmotion!

    The result is LEO’S QUEST, a film about how a wife’s ultimatum propelled a severely wounded Iraq war veteran off the couch, into wheelchair fencing and, after training for just 14 months, the 2013 National Wheelchair Saber Championship.

    It’s a film about the challenges and triumphs Leo faces as he attempts to qualify for the 2016 Paralympics. But it’s really much bigger than that. Leo’s passion to compete is second to his desire to give back in every way he can, by coaching disabled youngsters and helping other wounded vets recover from both their visible and invisible injuries.

    My hope is that LEO’S QUEST will provide a window into the experiences of our veterans, as they return from battle, and struggle to adjust to civilian life, despite their grievous wounds. And that it will remind us of the resilience of the human spirit and its unquenchable desire to be seen as capable and competent, and worthy of our respect.

    Maribeth and I are so excited to be finalists! Here’s a little more about our film:

    In a medium-sized city, by a big lake, at the base of a tall tree, inside a tiny door, lives a tree elf. For real.

    Over the last decade, Mr. Little Guy, as he is known, has responded directly to thousands of letters from Minnesotans of all shapes and sizes. His identity is a mystery, but with his signature sign-off – “enjoy your summer. I believe in you.” – Mr. Little Guy brings joy, wonder, solace, and hope to the people of Minneapolis, a city that, in spite of its niceness, can sometimes be a little cold.

    For Anna Larson, Mr. Little Guy brings curiosity, kindness, and consistency just when she needs it most. His door first appears in the ash tree across the street from her house on the same day that her parents announce their divorce. 20 years later, Anna returns home again – beat up, defeated, and in need of some serious magic. Anna’s mom is very sick and can no longer care for herself. As Anna cleans out her childhood home in preparation to sell it, she stumbles upon her elf letters and embarks on a mission to find the man behind the tiny door.
