This documentary is on Special needs, how their pass times are effected by their special needs and the story of two individuals, Mark who has autism and enjoys Minecraft and Amy who has scoliosis and enjoys playing the bodhran.

Rode Reel competition is now in its 5th year, celebrating every aspect of filmmaking excellence, a competition that inspires you to make a short film 3 minutes in length. The RØDE Lavaliere is a discreet lapel microphone that provides broadcast-quality audio when close-miked in almost any scenario. The Lavaliere’s low self-noise, user friendly omni-directional polar pattern and minimal appearance make it an ideal solution for film, television, video, theatre, house. The RØDE Shotgun is a bigger microphone that provides broadcast-quality audio from a distance. The Shotgun is great for getting audio without any microphones being caught on camera, the Shotgun can even be attached to a boom pole so much clearer audio can be recorded without the microphone getting into shot. We also had 2 cannon cameras one filmed the documentary and the other captured our work behind the scenes. Our location was Amy's house which her parents have especially adapted for her needs, the documentary live action shooting took place in her bedroom and kitchen. We also used gameplay footage from the popular game Minecraft as a visual representation of Mark's description of Autism and his thoughts on Minecraft.
