XTreme Video is excited to announce the release of “You and Me”. This beautiful documentary about Barney Miller, Mick Fanning’s best mate and quadriplegic surfer, who survived a car accident 17 years ago is now available on iTunes, Vimeo on demand, Google Play, Amazon Instant Video and amongst other VOD platforms.
Directed by Lorenzo DeCampos and Taylor Montemarano, “YOU and ME” follows the extraordinary true story of Barney Miller, an active, life loving guy who became a quadriplegic 17 years ago as an emerging Pro Surfer when the car he was a passenger in, hit a tree at over 120km/h. Told by doctors he would never breathe independently or be able to use his right arm or legs again, Barney has defied all medical assessments through grit, self-belief, hard work and sheer guts.
When Barney meets and falls in love with Kate, a girl with her own dreams of being a singer, he makes it his mission to only ask Kate to marry him when he can kneel down to propose, stand at the altar and dance at their wedding together.
With the help and support of loved ones, the innovative work of Neurophysics Functional Performance trainer Ken Ware and close friends including 3X World Champion surfer Mick Fanning, Barney is back surfing, fundraising for others with spinal injury through the Barney Miller Surf Classic, and the Wings for Life World Run and is working towards his ultimate goal – to walk, run and surf standing up again.
Barney Miller says: “I really hope that the message of the film that it’s never too late to live your dreams and make a change really gets out there. Despite those 10 years in the chair before I made my rehabilitation my priority, I just keep moving forward towards my goal of walking again. I know I will get there because not only do I believe in myself and am prepared to put in the training required, but I am surrounded by supportive loved ones who are right there beside me cheering me on every step of the way!”.
“You and Me” is now available for rent or download on major VOD platforms including iTunes, Vimeo On Demand, Google Play and Reelhouse. This film is produced by Garage Entertainment, also producer of Bra Boys and Fighting Fear surf films. For more information on available platforms, go to You and Me.
