Tampa, FL, February 25, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- Homes are being foreclosed. Jobs are lost. Money is tight and times are tough. These are signs of the U.S. economy.
Triple Knot Productions, Inc. located in Tampa, Florida is being impacted by the hurting economy as well.
Founder Brian K Dery, set out three years ago to form an organization to help raise awareness about living with a disability. His mission, to produce films to help motivate and inspire, and that is exactly what he does.
In 1998, Dery was paralyzed from a neurological virus, Guillain-Barre Syndrome. Having a very rare form of the virus, Dery was told that he would never recover from it nor walk again. But one day, he did recover. It was sometime after that Dery decided it was time to motivate others that you should not give up and that you needed to work hard to overcome the limitations faced everyday.
Triple Knot Productions was born. Dery focuses on the lives of brave and courageous individuals who have life changing disabilities. He tells their stories of how they have triumphed over tragedy.
Since the creation of Triple Knot Productions, Dery has formed strong partnerships with many local and nationwide organizations, such as Shriners Hospitals, Veterans Administration, United Cerebral Palsy and the American Heart Association just to name a few.
Triple Knot Productions now in production of its latest film, "Dear Mom and Dad, I'm Autistic" is seeking funding to meet its budget. Dery feels that with times being the way they are, his budget will not be met and the project will be delayed.
"I know that times are tough. I am personally feeling it myself. But with every kind person, it reassures me that there is someone out there believing in me and believing in the work that I do. I serve the disabled community as best as I can, because I was once in their shoes in one form or another."
All donations made to Triple Knot Productions are tax deductible. Dery says anyone who makes a donation between now and April 30th will have their name in the credits of the autism documentary and will also receive a free copy once the film has been completed.
