Denver, CO, May 07, 2014 --(PR.com)-- a Martin McGuire film Announces Post Production and crowd funding for “Never Say I Can’t” - “The Manuel Salazar Story”

a Martin McGuire film is proud to announce the Indiegogo campaign to finance Post Production for “Never Say I Can’t” – “The Manuel Salazar Story,” a documentary feature starring Manuel Salazar, Coco Saltzgiver and directed by Martin McGuire. Due out Mid to Late 2014.

Have you ever been stared at, pointed at or laughed at in public? “Never Say I Can’t” – “The Manuel Salazar Story” is the tale of two seemingly broken people who come together through a horrendous work related accident to rebuild their lives and struggle to achieve the American Dream. Manuel Salazar was raised a Hispanic male in white Arkansas. Although he always felt out of place as a child as the only brown face in a sea of white, Manuel excelled at school, hobbies and life. At the tender age of 24 Manuel had achieved the American Dream. He had a beautiful, loving wife, two step-children, two pets, a good job, a house and a car. Life was good. Then in an instant he was hit twice by 115,000 volts of electricity on the job leaving him a quadruple amputee. After months of hardship and struggle his wife and kids leave him divorced, alone and with no way to care for himself. Manuel’s life is spinning out of control as he is addicted to numerous pain medications and gaining a lot of weight through depression and lack of physical exertion. Enter Coco Saltzgiver, his main caregiver for the next eight years. Coco is a lesbian woman born and raised among Mormons in Utah. Always having felt out of place her older sister Karen was her pillar of strength. When Coco is 19 her father died, a year later Karen is brutally murdered. Her life in complete turmoil Coco turned to helping others as a profession. Years later Coco survives breast cancer and a mastectomy. She met Manuel about a year after his accident and together the two of them set out on an adventure of self-exploration and empowerment we call “Never Say I Can’t” – “The Manuel Salazar Story.” You’ll see these two unbeatable characters create and check off a bucket list able bodied people may not complete in a lifetime. Manuel and Coco have suffered the slings and arrows of sexual, racial and disability prejudices. Watch as the characters deal with these ugly indignities through love, acceptance and understanding. Baseless discrimination and bullying are ugly factors in any society, Martin McGuire, a truly independent Producer, was truly inspired by Manuel and Coco’s story and turned their hardships into a 10 year Labor of Love. Now out of money he needs the public’s help finishing his film. He has turned to crowd funding and is currently running a campaign on Indiegogo.com. If you’d like to know more or to donate towards the film’s post production Go to Indiegogo.com, look up Films, Search for “Never Say I Can’t” – “The Manuel Salazar Story” and make your contributions. Mr. McGuire would like to thank all those have helped or are interested in his project.

Manuel Salazar and Coco Saltzgiver star in this movie, this is a breakthrough performance and a moving tale that will empower any audience member to say to themselves – “If he can do it - I sure as hell can!”

People have said, they believe Manuel Salazar may be a fallen angel, come to Earth to teach people the powers that reside within each of them.
