LIVE LIKE ROSE

 

Like Turning Point Brooklyn, Helen Keller Services was a Media Share grantee and I was their Producing Mentor. My job was to train them in basic video production and to create a program for the organization.

 

Helen Keller gave me full-access and freedom to develop the program concept, and I knew I had something when I met Rose, a charismatic 51-year employee. Though born blind, Rose has lived a full life with a marriage, children, a career, friends, and hobbies. She became our ideal and we wanted to encourage people with vision-loss to enroll in the Adaptive Living Program so that they too could "live like Rose."

 

The program had to be fully accessible to both hearing- and visually-impaired audiences, so all spoken-word is subtitled and all on-screen titles are delivered in voiceover.
