RespectAbility Entertainment Professionals Lab, Summer 2020
Elisabeth Good is excited to be involved in the RespectAbility Summer Lab program this year. She has a diverse background in theatre and film. She received her college degree in theatre from Illinois State University. Over the years her interest in acting for people with disabilities has grown. Theatre was a safe and welcoming environment for her in high school. She was born with cerebral palsy. After gaining a college degree she moved back to her hometown in South Bend, Indiana where film and casting caught her interest. Her latest film project as a script supervisor was Best Summer Ever.
After an extensive search and interview process, 30 individuals were invited to participate in RespectAbility’s Summer 2020 Lab for Entertainment Professionals. This 5-week, 15-session virtual summer Lab series for people interested in – and with experience in – development, production and post-production, including careers as writers, directors, producers, cinematographers, animators and other production roles, will take place June 16 – July 16, 2020. Participants include diverse people with physical, cognitive, sensory, mental health and other disabilities. Learn more: www.respectability.org/respectability-la-lab.
