@BFI @EmmaWatson @Adam_Pearson @Lindsey_Dryden @prouddavid @ClarenceFrankie @samrenke @Dan_Edge Huge respect to everyone involved in this and huge respect to everyone backing it. There are some great disability stories waiting to be told and great stories by disabled authors that could be unleashed on the silver screen etc. On the Edge of Gone by Corrine Duyvis for instance
@BFI @EmmaWatson @Adam_Pearson @Lindsey_Dryden @prouddavid @ClarenceFrankie @samrenke @Dan_Edge Upon seeing this post, very curious to know what does @Adam_Pearson do to campaign against deformity bullying. Found a TED talk but audience @ such events are usually informed & prepared for inclusion.
Wondering what does he do to engage the ordinary public & how do they react.
"If you’re thinking about your bottom line, you could actively include and cater to the 13.9 million disabled people in the UK who are longing to see themselves depicted on screen” - BFI Vision Award 2020 director and producer @Lindsey_Dryden
"Prior to the Covid-19 outbreak, as far as disability and inclusion was concerned, the industry was very much broken. And now we’re in the midst of Covid, the industry is pretty much broken for everyone. Welcome to our world!” - @Adam_Pearson
