Breaking into the film industry proves to be difficult for the majority of aspiring filmmakers, but when you have a disability, it can seem a lot harder.

When looking at entry level roles, the main job you may come across is a runner. But, we know that being a runner is not always possible for the majority of people with physical disabilities.

You may find yourself asking the below questions:

Do I need to be able to drive to break into the film and television industry?

If I am unable to drive, how can I be a runner?

If I can't be a runner, how am I meant to progress?

This vicious cycle of thoughts may bring you to think that you will not be able to break into the industry, but this is not true. There are other ways into the industry without being a runner, and this is where we come in.
