Pip's Blues/Disability Documentary

$5,220 of $10k goal

Raised by 74 people in 14 months
Pip was 17 years old when he had a motorbike accident that left him with permanent spinal cord injury. As a result he is now paralysed from the chest down, has no finger movement, limited arm function, and uses a wheelchair.

In the 22 years since his accident Pip has developed a passion for blues music and despite his injuries has figured out a unique and interesting way to play a one string cigar box guitar using a screw driver.

Pip’s passion for the music and culture of the blues has prompted him to create a project called Busking My Way To Mississippi,  which will be a collaboration between He and long time friend Ryan Coonan.

Ryan will follow Pip with a video camera as he busks on the streets of his home town and region, trying to earn enough money to travel to Mississippi to discover firsthand what the blues is really about.

The project goal is to produce a documentary that explores themes related to living with a disability such as everyday life, travel, social engagement and inclusion, quality of life and purpose, and expressing oneself through blues music. And of course reaching for a dream!

All funds raised through this process will go towards filming and production costs which is estimated to be $10,000.Busking My Way To Mississippi
