Tough Nissi – A Documentary Short Film

Nissi has cerebral palsy, but that’s not going to stop her from competing in Tough Mudder. She knows she can’t do it alone, but with the support of her friends and family she knows she can finish the race.

Nissi asked me if I would be willing to help tell her story and I said “yes.” She wants to inspire people with her story and share this message:

You can do things that seem impossible when you surround yourself with people who support and believe in you.

This project will be funded through Kickstarter. The official campaign launch will be April 3, 2017. Click below to learn more:

I’m making a documentary short film about my friend, Nissi. You can learn more about this project here:

Hi, I’m Ben Toalson

I have a passion for telling stories through film, music, and art. I believe the world is brimming with amazing stories just waiting to be told and I want to be a conduit through which some of those stories can reach the world. I have a background in art and design, through which I honed my eye and attention to detail, a background in music, through which I learned the art of connecting stories to the deepest parts of our emotional experience, and most recently discovered a love for film, which combines my favorite artistic outlets into a powerful experience.
As a storyteller, I see it as my duty to find and tell stories that inspire, challenge, and encourage. When stories are told, the world can be changed.
