Simon Fitzmaurice MY NAME IS EMILY Indiegogo campaign from Kennedy Films on Vimeo.

A truly inspirational man, Simon Fitzmaurice needs your help to make his movie. Simon Fitzmaurice was diagnosed with Motor Neuron Disease (ALS) in 2008 – just after his film THE SOUND OF PEOPLE screened at Robert Redford’s Sundance Film festival. At the time, Simon was the father of 2 children, his wife Ruth was pregnant with their third, and he had been heralded as “Ireland’s most promising film-maker” by Film Ireland. But Simon refused to allow his disease to affect his drive towards becoming a feature film director. In the face of this adversity he wrote the script for MY NAME IS EMILY.
