Hey guys

Okay, so I have to produce a script, for a short 15 minute documentary. I've chosen to focus predominately on autism, no real reason other than the fact I find it fascinating and of great interest. Now originally it was going to be on just the CARERS of those with autism, and I already have an interview with my friend's mum, who manages social workers and carers etc. making sure that those with autism get the right help.

Basically, I'd like to hear from people with autism, to give this documentary a more whole and wider feel. I would need to have an interview, and it would be really interesting to hear from people around my age (16-20). It would basically consist of questions such as how does it affect your day-to-day life, and it really is just about how your feelings on having autism, and how you've coped etc. As I say, it's not a long documentary, in scripted form only, and I'm going for a personalised approach.

Any questions, please ask. I'd really appreciate any replies, and look forward to hopefully talking to a few people, and mainly conducting this interview for my module. Thanks a lot!

Do you need voices/bodies available or would doing a Facebook interview be a viable option?

Facebook or MSN, yeah. The interview only need be transcribed, which would also help if it was originally in scripted form at any rate. Are you interested Broncos?

I could, but I'm pretty HFA. Unless that matters, message me for my profile & just send the message that way.

Mia, I've just sent you a PM. Apologies for the long delay in a response, must remember to check here frequently. Bronco, I'll see if I can come up with a range of questions for you in the next few days if that's how you'd like to do this, so guys thanks for the help.

Once more, anyone else who would like to help in giving an interview, please do reply here. Better yet, a PM would be great since you see that you have messages as soon as you log in!

Thanks a lot.
