Escaping Parkinsons: September-November 2014
At age eighteen Mark Correia set a World Record for longest time strapped inside a straitjacket. He was featured on every Canadian broadcasting network and received international acclaim with total viewership estimated at 31 million people worldwide. On the fourteenth day of the stunt, Mark escaped from the straitjacket on live television. Over $15,000 was raised for the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, and Michael J. Fox himself publicly supported the stunt, and keeps in touch with Mark today.
I was Production director for a multi-day filming. I also edited copy, maintained schedule and organized the schedule and production team.
