Blind filmmaker Adam Morse set to launch debut feature film, Lucid
June 20, 2018
Producing a film is a challenging affair in many ways. Now imagine doing that when you are visually impaired. Well, Adam Morse has done it and the world is taking notice!
Just days ahead of the world premiere of his first film Lucid, filmmaker Adam Morse has revealed that he is visually impaired. Something he says he kept a secret from this lead actor, Billy Zane as well.
Lucid is a psychological thriller about a therapist who advises a patient to experiment with a dream therapy to win over a woman.
Morse was diagnosed with Leber hereditary optic neuropathy, a neurodegenerative disorder, in 2009. It is a neurodegenerative disorder and left Morse with only peripheral vision.
Morse told his crew about his condition after production on the film began. He did not tell the financier or investors either as he was afraid they might pull out of the project.
Morse cannot read text and relies on screen-reader software. He says his filmmaking was greatly helped by his cinematographer Michel Dierickx. He hopes the film will inspire people to make their dreams real. Not just disabled people but everyone who has a dream.
Morse has started working on his next film, which is a dark comedy called China Blue, which will go into production next year.
