VocalEyes is creating a series of very short films for museum staff training, and promotional purposes. The films will feature blind and partially sighted people answering ‘frequently asked questions’ about the experience of living with sight loss, such as “Can I ask a blind person how much they can see?” or “If someone's never seen, how do they understand colours?”
They hope to film a variety of people, with a range of opinions, and different levels of sight. They're particularly interested in hearing from people who enjoy visiting museums and galleries, and using audio description at the venues.
