Does anyone know of any good grant systems for someone based in the North East of England UK, over 40 and male. I say this because everytime I look, most grants are aimed at students, under a certain age, women film makers or in the USA/Canada. I am desperate to make a documentary/film based on my Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibro Myositis and Restless Arm Syndrome. The reason for this is I still find people do not recognise any of the above as an actual illness/disability. I want to express (in detail) exactly what it is I suffer to make people aware. I have suffered major issues with pass jobs and managers who feel I make it up or am just lazy. I have worked all my life (as well as doing my film making). It was not until I had an accident at work which left permanent damage that I developed the CFS/RAS as well as heart complications. CFS is horrible. I fight it every day and every day I feel worn out with it. I won't quite... ever however I want people to understand what it is like. It is a disability and is an illness. If anyone knows of any help I can get I would be hugely appreciative as this is so important to me. Many thanks in advance.
