12 years ago, David Jeffers suffered a spinal cord injury that left him paralyzed from the chest down. But through his recovery process, the mechanical engineer launched a new career based on one of his oldest passions: music and sound. And his old friend, Ricardo Roberts, executive producer at Los Angeles-based inclusive motion-graphics studio Bien, has been there to provide assistance and encouragement all along the way.
Together, Quadriphonic and Bien have produced an award-winning spot for the Paralympics (below) and created a unique brand campaign for Quadriphonic (above).
Now Bien is producing a short documentary about Jeffers’ life.
