Music video shoot Sex Machine
The director Anno Soul, who had just finished the film Where is Fred? with Till Schweiger in Berlin and who dealt with the issue of disability in this context, was planning something very special for the remix music video Sex Machine by James Brown. In an unusual dance performance with a disabled dancer he wanted to show that disability can be sexy. For this purpose he was looking for a wheelchair dancer who could embody that idea. For the music video, which now enjoys great popularity on the Internet, A.I.D.A. had exactly the right artist: a professional dancer who suffered from polio during childhood and was now permanently wheelchair-bound. A.I.D.A. also provided the choreographer and handled placement, contract negotiations and rehearsal planning.
