Development Pitch

Autism, a word that is coming up more and more in Society, Autism, a stigma box that still surrounds it, Autism is on the rise and in this day and age, families are still going through the cracks and feel hopeless. "The Autistic Author and Animator", centers around a Mother's view of her daughter, Jenny's, journey with Autism. This book is a best seller and receiving rave reviews. From the assertive perseverance of a Mother's unconditional love,( after being told when Jenny was 3, she had low functioning Autism) to the Dream Team who goes the extra mile for them, the rawness of bullying Jenny endured and Janet having to go through the mental and physical abuse from her then husband who wasn't accepting of the Autism.So many people say after reading our story, they are wanting to do a Jenny as they see all what she went through and where she is at today and that she is an inspiration and role model. The enduring and assertive Mother who was her rock, voice and sounding board. Their story hits the hearts and soul of not only the Autistic Community but the General Public as well. With all the above, a Film, titled,"The Evolution of Jenny", would appeal to everyone and the message of endurance, strength and a Mother and Daughter who never looked back, full speed ahead no matter what curves came their way!! Their special, unique bond and never giving up captures the essence of what being positive is all about and will instill the same for people who watch the movie.
