Prize4Life Inspires Award-winning ALS Film: Trapped
Date:3/24/2010

Film by Takata raises ALS awareness, promotes Prize4Life.

(Vocus) March 24, 2010 -- In April of 2009, Director/Producer James Takata, Writers/Producers Zach Lewis and Jim Mahoney, and Producer Jhennifer Webberley created the film Trapped to support Prize4Life’s battle against ALS. Trapped is a short film about Stephen, a talented young composer and pianist who discovers he has ALS after an eerie progression of symptoms. And though he begins to lose his ability to physically write music and play the piano, his spirit and genius cannot be taken by the disease. As Director Takata describes, though is body is deteriorating, “his ability is still there.”

Trapped was the brainchild of Amy Yamner, Chair of Prize4Life’s Board of Directors. Yamner had seen a short film about Alzheimer's that put the disease into the public eye, and she thought the approach was a brilliant way to raise awareness about ALS. She collaborated with Zach Lewis and Jim Mahoney, who wrote the script, and then brought on Director James Takata to bring the script to life in a compassionate, elegant and powerful manner (see an interview with the makers of “Trapped” here).

David Rodgers gives an inspiring performance as Stephen in this evocative film that draws attention to the cruel progression of the disease. Oliver Ponce’s stunning camera work and Michael John Mollo’s amazing original score lend beauty to a very difficult subject matter.

Impressively, Trapped was created and produced for under $10,000. The professional writers, directors, and producers volunteered both time and equipment, and local vendors generously gave the team non-profit discounts or waived fees entirely.
