Was it okay to ask what you needed?
I have come to believe that I have to show how easy it is to work as a Deaf. I was worried that it might be fragile. But after working with others, I realized that everyone had their own challenges. You need to think about what you need to offer as an actor and don’t apologize.
What should Hollywood do to make Deaf people more comprehensive?
Hollywood has finally begun to understand why having a representative is so important. And now it’s how important it is. That’s the trickier part. We need to involve hearing-impaired writers and creative talents in the process of planning a film project from the beginning. From crews to make-up artists, if you have a hearing-impaired expert on stage and on stage, it naturally feels like a more authentic expression on the screen.
How about the hearing impaired?
Hollywood needs to lead cute interviews with subtitle ads, trailers, and clips where celebrities promote movies. Another thing I would like to see improved is the details of the audio description. It’s not enough to just see “music playing” in the scene. What kind of music is it? happy? scared?
Are most cinemas available to the hearing impaired?
number! We thought about it later in the cinema and we need to change that. To watch subtitles in the theater, you need to use a special closed captioning device. This is a headache because most of the time the device doesn’t work. Next, you need to go back to the front desk and find someone to help you. The movie was completed prematurely by the time they realized that it wasn’t working, that is, it wasn’t subtitled at all. Then you will see the message “Would you like to give me a free ticket for the next movie?” And I’m like “Are you kidding me?” It doesn’t solve the problem.
Do you feel the pressure to pave the way for future Deaf people?
I’m not going to lie, I sometimes feel pressure and stress, and it can be a burden. It’s important to remember that it’s not my job to inspire or model others, but what I have is the ability to make those connections.
What do people want to rob this movie?
Growing up, I never dreamed of becoming an actor. I couldn’t see myself on the screen. When I was young, I thought I was one of the few hearing-impaired people walking on this planet.Now I know at least as an adult 466 million hearing-impaired and hearing-impaired.. I’m not the only one. And that’s what it means to have a hearing-impaired superhero — more people will see more possibilities.
