    After being diagnosed with Lou Gehrigs Disease, fully paralyzed LA artist “TemptOne” gets his creative voice back through an unlikely friendship with a perfect stranger. Getting Up is a documentary about the life of artist TemptOne and the quest to give him back his ability to do art. It asks the question, ‘How does a fallen man get back up?’ Mick Ebeling founded the Not Impossible Foundation in order to give a voice back to TEMPT, and in 2009 an open-source DIY device called ‘The EyeWriter’ was created that allowed TEMPT to once again do his art. Getting Up beautifully illustrates that through the will of two men, and on the shoulders of a community, anything is possible.

    HOW DOES A FALLEN MAN GET BACK UP?
    Tony ‘TEMPT’ Quan is a legendary LA graffiti artist, social activist and publisher. In 2003, he was diagnosed with ALS (also called Lou Gherig’s Disease), a degenerative nerve disorder which has rendered him unable to move, breathe or speak. In 2009, Mick Ebeling and his Not Impossible Foundation brought a motley crew of international hackers and artists to Los Angeles to attempt the impossible: invent a low-cost, open source DIY device that allows Tempt to once again create art, using the only part of his body that still moves, his eyes. After months of harrowing trial and error, The EYEWRITER was born and Tempt was once again able to create art. Getting Up: The Tempt One Story beautifully illustrates that through the will of two men, and on the shoulders of a community, anything is possible.
