Pressbox (Press Release) -
Steven Berkani, a tenacious 32-year-old filmmaker, is making waves in the world of inclusive filmmaking despite facing the challenges of living with cerebral palsy. Confined to a wheelchair and without the use of his hands or legs, Steven's positive attitude and unwavering determination have propelled him to master the art of video editing, a skill he self-taught from an early age.
His family, including Melissa Grooms, Chris Berkani, and his parents Karen and Julien Berkani, is thrilled to see Steven pursuing a passion that brings him immense joy and purpose. Despite the challenges he has faced, Steven's commitment to filmmaking and technology has not only been a source of inspiration for those closest to him but has also fostered a sense of pride in his family.
Passionate about technology and filmmaking, Steven has dedicated his creative pursuits to producing public service announcements (PSAs) that tackle important societal issues. From addressing bullying to campaigning against texting while driving, he uses his unique perspective to create content that aims to educate and improve lives.
Thanks to GoFundMe, Steven was able to enough money for a Mac Studio desktop (which is being released soon) and other editing equipment. However, thereís one other thing he needs, that is, a MacBook Pro laptop. Due to his cerebral palsy, he canít stay seated for the long. This portable solution would enable Steven to work in a laying down position, providing both comfort and sustainability to his workspace. It's a vital element in creating content that truly resonates. To continue delivering impactful messages and enhancing the quality of his work, he has a GoFundMe campaign, seeking financial support for much-needed video editing equipment.
In his own words on the GoFundMe page, Steven shares, "Hello, I'm Steven Berkani, an aspiring filmmaker on a mission to create powerful videos that ignite change. I'm reaching out to you for your valuable support in acquiring essential editing equipment that will take my filmmaking to new heights."
Living with Cerebral Palsy, Steven has faced and conquered challenges, using his chin to edit videos on outdated equipment. To overcome financial barriers and elevate his craft, he seeks contributions that will directly fund modern editing tools, software, and necessary adaptations.
Your support will empower Steven to acquire the resources needed to enhance his video production capabilities, allowing his creativity to flourish. By standing with him, you're enabling the production of impactful videos that drive social change.
Join Steven on his journey of inclusive filmmaking by contributing to his GoFundMe campaign. Your generosity will not only help him overcome obstacles but also pave the way for continued storytelling that matters.
