rainahaig.com: Q1

Q1: Film is a visual medium. How can a visually-impaired person be capable of directing a film?



Q1: Film is a visual medium. How can a visually-impaired person be capable of directing a film?

'Seeing' as a director, that all important 'vision', resides in the cast of the mind, not in the physical eye. Just as a film is made by director and team, rather than by facilitating tools such as camera, avid etc.

In film, the unfolding drama is expressed via a stream of decisive moments of action/reaction. Arriving at these images involves an INNER process of the imagination, of feeling, seeing and hearing, in my case informed by but not dependent on the physical eye. I was fully sighted until the age of 14, and compose images using a conventional visual grammar where necessary.

Turning the imagination's vision into a film is the job of a team of people led by the director. The director works with the creative team to communicate the elements of this vision in whatever way works, and feedback from the team develops this vision into a shared one. All those involved then work out how to realise it in practical terms. All of this, in my case, simply depends on having good communication with a creative team I trust to listen and feedback carefully. And a production management prepared to make adjustments to accommodate my specific requirements at work: in how information is communicated to me, provision of appropriate technical tools. Such provision presents no problem for an organised production, whose job it is after all to resource the director in the best way possible.

With good production support, I hope to show that visual impairment can be a catalyst for unusual creativity.
