Playback

James Rath is a legally blind filmmaker based in Los Angeles. He's the guy who made the "How Apple Saved My Life" video—about how Apple's products and accessibility features changed his life—that caught Apple's attention earlier this year. I've been following James on Twitter and YouTube since then, and I like his work a lot.

He has a new project in the works: a documentary called Playback. He says of the film:

For too long people with disabilities haven't been accurately portrayed in media. I want to change that. As a legally blind filmmaker, I can't visually appreciate everything in the moment, that's why I'm motivated to capture these stories, adventures, and interactions for accessible "Playback".

This looks like a fantastic project. Like I always say, diversity and inclusivity includes people with disabilities too. I hope James reaches his funding goal. Check it out.
