Isaac Harvey, a 26-year-old man from Ilford in East London is a renowned filmmaker despite the fact that he is living with a disability.
The young man was born with a birth defect called limb hypoplasia which affected the development of the limbs and left him with no hands and tiny legs.
Without allowing this to hold him back, Thesun.co.uk reported that Isaac started vlogging and filming himself playing games with his feet which amazed many social media users.
His online presence grew and now, the 26-year-old is recognised as one of the best filmmakers in London as he has won awards for his hard work and exploits.
Isaac was one of fifteen finalists in the Vlogstar Challenge to find the best young filmmaker in London and Essex.
His video Hard Work (It Pays Off…) then won him the top prize at a big Bafta ceremony, getting £500 (N282,570.15 as per current rate) filming equipment, plus mentoring from YouTube.

Instead of resorting to begging alms on the streets, the yet-to-be-identified man who is blind on both eyes has put his skill to use.
Photos of the blind man weaving beads into nice flower vases on the street were shared on Twitter by a user with the handle @ADawakee.
Using his hands to trace the beads and make good weavings, the blind man showed creative skills like one who didn't lose the use of his eyes.
