Feature Autism Film in Columbus – Those Who Spring of Me – GOFUNDME

Those Who Spring of Me, a feature film in Columbus, is an independent feature film about a young non-verbal man with autism, Will, and his girlfriend, Tatum, who also has autism. Will and Tatum met on the job, and Will communicates through typing on a voice output device. Will and Tatum announce to his parents that they want to conceive a child together—they also ask for permission and assistance when the child is born.

Film Production Stills from Columbus, Ohio

In this blog post we will feature some Those Who Spring of Me film production stills from locations throughout Glen Echo in Columbus, Ohio. We have had to take a small break from production as we set up our next phase for indoor shots, classroom scenes, and much more. In the mean time enjoy the stills from scenes shot in September and October.


This still is from day 2 featuring Audrey Todd as Sybil coming home to find the house decorated with several art projects created by her son Will.
