Crip Video Productions' mission is to make short independent films that increase understanding of disability through engaging characters and story telling. The films are created by people with disabilities for everyone to enjoy. All films are written, directed, and produced by Margot Cole. We collaborate with able bodied people and people with a variety of disabilities for the sake of simply telling a good story. We mostly work with people who have physical disabilities. We do our best to make the films accessible by adding open captions to the films for the deaf and hard of hearing. Although we would love to accommodate people with moderate to severe mental disabilities and add audio description to the films for the blind we are simply not set up to do so at this time. Crip Video Productions is an online project we do for fun. We are not an official organization. We do NOT receive any kind of funding or grants from the government or elsewhere. We do NOT seek to profit from the films in any way. We try to produce the highest quality films we can on a low budget. Most people working on the films donate their time out of the kindness of their hearts and work pro bono for which we are forever grateful. We follow the necessary precautions of filmmaking and have full permission to use all the locations seen in the films. Check out all of our films! Learn more about our work on the "About" and "News" sections and check out/follow our Tumblr blog http://cripvideoproductions.tumblr.com which chronicles our story from the very beginning, as well as our Google+ page. All films are fully copyrighted to Margot Cole.
