I am Rory Hoy, an 18 year-old Autistic Filmmaker, who has made the semi-famous public information film, “Autism and Me” (2005).
As I am autistic, I find home life a walk in the park, but school life was more difficult than home life, as I sucked at making buddies (‘cos they were all in big groups, and it was impossible to move around), and it was hard to know what was going on, but it has improved hecksloads, since the primary years of 1992-99.
Autism and Me explains what the heck autism is about and how it affects the lives of young children worldwide. It is suitable for both the kidlets and the adults, as there isn’t any cussing or Ninja Turtles in it. It is done through the fourth wall and has proven to be a huge success with children and grown-ups worldwide. I am working on a sequel (Also called “Autism and Me”), which is longer, better, and in COLOUR! (I spelt it with a U)
The sequel, or re-make, will be distributed on a worldwide basis and will come with a booklet and a nice cover, with me on it.
I hope you people will enjoy my kickass films and music, as much as my friends do, but still, remember to wash your teeth.
Tips for grown-ups with autistic kids like myself:
• Obsessions – Most Autistic kids have this. It’s OK to have them, as something else will take their place (eventually) (E.g. I’m obsessed with apes/monkeys)
• Some autistic kids go through anger during mood-swings, e.g. when they are hungry
• Activities, which involve loads of dudes, can be stressful
• Background noise is Teeerrrraaabbbllle (unless it is Badass music). It’s distracting dude
• If I don’t enjoy something, I will suck at concentrating
