Adam and Me | Documentary Idea
by James Sutherland
Adam is my best friend, and has been for 10 years now. I know him like the back of my hand. we met in the spring of 2002 when we we're both 12 years old; at our local comic book shop. Instantly we were drawn together through our very similar taste in cape-clad heroes.
Unfortunately Adam suffers from Autism. Unable to keep eye-contact at the best of times. day to day life for Adam can be challenging at best.
Two years ago Adam's Gran passed on. A few week's later he moved into my apartment. I thought I knew everything about my best friend Adam. I was so wrong it was unbelievable.
It seemed from the moment I seen Adam in casual happy environments; for every problem he had, he had a talent. Unable to make eye-contact, communicate clearly with strangers, self-injurious and suffering from severe violent episodes. However for every negative there was a positive.
A writer, a poet, a painter, a musician.
The documentary will show, how through a little guidance Adam has become a local celebrity through his art's. Made friends deserving of his time. And a love so strong it will never sever.
Following the best days and the worst of Adam and me.
