Out on a Limb

You may be interested in this project! Please check this out ....

OUT ON A LIMB is a documentary about advances in prosthetics for amputees and their transformative impact on so many lives. It won the “BEST DOCUMENTARY AWARD” at the 2013 Boston International Film Festival. Please forward to your friends and colleagues.
This coming fall, to coincide with Veteran’s Day, the documentary will debut on KRCB, a PBS-member station -- and we have been offered national distribution by NETA, the National Educational Telecommunications Association, which specializes in the distributuion of one-of-a-kind documentaries to 350 public television stations across the country. This is a huge audience!  But we need a little more help.
There are many expenses in accepting this offer from NETA, and we’re happy to say some foundations and companies have already come in as Underwriters of the Program.  We just need a little more – and we just have another few weeks -- to make it over the hump. That’s why we've just launched a Crowd-Funding Campaign. Check it out at:



But we’re not just asking, we’re giving too. You can receive “PERKS” such as the OUT ON A LIMB DVD with 30 Bonus Minutes of Stories and Interviews. What’s more, your donations are Tax-Deductible-- because OUT ON A LIMB is fiscally sponsored by the International Documentary Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization.

 "Out On A Limb is a compelling look at the evolution of prosthetics and the exciting advancements being made in the prosthetics field at the intersection of neuroscience, engineering, and robotics. This is an inspiring and informative chronicle of human spirit and ingenuity.”  Stan Marvin, KRCB, Director of Broadcast
“A compelling documentary, Out On A Limb explores the incredible advances being made in the field of prosthetics and shows their potential impact on so many lives-- from the thousands of amputees wounded in wars to the millions of civilians at risk from such common diseases as diabetes” 
Peter Rosenstein, Exec. Director, American Academy of Orthotists & Prosthetists
