Fugitive Autistic Filmmaking was conceived by Scotty Holman, a recently diagnosed young adult Aspergian coping with life and career from a decidedly neurodiverse perspective.  FAF is a collaboration factory for artistic projects among people whose paths might never otherwise cross.

After struggling with undiagnosed autism for 25 years, Scotty now writes and speaks publicly about his life with autism, inspiring greater understanding and acceptance.  His work, featured in Forbes, Autism Speaks, WrongPlanet.net  and Autism after 16.com has helped establish Scotty as part of a new wave of self-analytic, young Aspie adult writers, artists and filmmakers chronicle a compelling perspective of neurodiverse daily life.  


What exactly IS neurodiversity?  Scotty wants to learn what the public knows about the subject... or if people have even heard the term

 "I had not had a meltdown in well over a month and was so proud of myself.   Well, I was bound to come apart eventually."

I'm A Good Driver  0:32

“Scotty,” she said, “why don’t you act like you’re a good driver?” While initially irritated by her suggestion, I forced myself to consider it on the ride to the DMV. By God, she was right! I was neither confident nor capable, but a stranger had no way of knowing this. I could fake it!

Lyrica: Psychiatry's Best Kept Secret  3:41

In this offbeat and humorous episode of Fugitive Autistic Filmmaking, I document my response to a medication which is not FDA approved for treating mental health conditions, yet miraculously relieves my depression and anxiety, while also stabilizing my mood. Lyrica's staggering effect on such wide ranging symptoms allows me to discontinue three other medications. I have comfortably replaced them with with two little capsules of Lyrica a day!
