Joey Travolta transforms special needs students into super show business talents

Six individuals get the job experience of a lifetime when they are hired as crew and travel across the country to work at Joey Travolta’s summer film camps. Here their skills as film students and adults with
developmental disabilities are tested in a series of events that ask the question, “What does it mean to be independent?”.

A collaboration with Futures Explored & Inclusion Films, Lights, Camera, Independence is Seth M. Shulman’s second feature documentary. It is currently going through the film festival circuit. Updates to come!
