Viva Las Continue!


On Tuesday, September 21, 2010 I flew down to Vegas for the Annual Meeting of Spinal Cord Injury Professionals. A new conference that assembles the best of the best from the world of spinal cord medicine, rehabilitation and adaptive equipment. This was the perfect place to promote and begin distributing our film "continue".


Wednesday morning, I met Jeff Rosenbluth at our booth. We assembled the 50-inch television that Jeff hauled from Salt Lake and set it up at our booth. This would be the centerpiece of our exhibit.


Around 11:30, Our DVDs arrived, hot off the press. I was concerned that there would be a delay, but Oasis, the company that produced our discs and packaging, delivered on time. 1000 DVDs, ready to be distributed and delivered by this guy.


The packaging turned out amazingly well. Everything from the print colors to the quality of paper used. Both Jeff and I were very pleased with the final result. Very nice.


The biggest surprise at the conference was my friend and one of the stars of "continue", Muffy Davis. I was finally able to give her a DVD of the project. Muffy and her husband Jeff are featured in the film's alpine skiing sequence. It was great to catch up and chat about potential future projects.



So, what's next for "continue"? In the weeks and months ahead, Jeff and I will begin delivering copies of the film to rehab facilities and other adaptive recreation/sport organizations across the country. We will also be sending the DVDs to the film's stars, crew and anyone who helped make the project a reality.  In addition to distribution, we will also be doing everything we can to get publicity in publications such as "Sports N Spokes", "Paraplegia News" and other magazines and websites that focus on disability and spinal cord injury. Our journey is complete as far as the film's production is concerned. Now we just want to focus on spreading our production far and wide.

I'd really like to speak with you about your movie, and our specialized exercise gym for people with spinal cord injuries - Push to Walk in Riverdale, NJ. I bet we could do something fun and worthwhile for both of us! Cynthia Templeton - ctempleton@pushtowalknj.org.
