Watch: Deafblind artist’s second foray into film making

Posted on March 27, 2013



There’s no stopping this guy. This is a  friend of mine and the best artist I know personally (except my Mum). His name is Jamie ‘Lloyd’ McCullough and he has made his second foray into film making.

Jamie has Usher syndrome and communicates using hands-on signing. I know from speaking to Jamie that he has no creative boundaries; his mind is truly free from constraint and that is obvious from his films and painting.

In this second short-film, entitled ‘4 eyes’, Jamie comes across a version of himself in the kitchen and makes use of some natty special effects.  Last year, Jamie sent me his first film and I blogged about it about here. Both films are great anyway but the sense of wonder only increases when you consider that Jamie filmed both films with his mobile phone camera and then did the editing them himself, overcoming his severe sight loss.

As I mentioned earlier, Jamie is an artist and a very good one too. His fantasy art website called ‘Thogusart’ shows what he’s capable of and I urge you to take a look. Check out the video below.
