Good morning Roger, thank you for taking my question. I’m 48, late deafened (in high school) and wear a cochlear implant. Jordan Cronenweths photography on Blade Runner made me obsessed with movie making at the age of 8. I never had the guts to find my way into the industry, so who knows what will happen in the future. I think I might be happy to sweep the set if I had the chance to work on a movie. But my question is, what kind of challenges do you see for a deaf person on a film set, beyond the obvious? There are still a lot of hearing people who get visibly frustrated and angry when they have to deal with a deaf person who seemingly is not the perfect lipreader. A film set seems like a very high pressure environment with the investors constantly coming down on you, and that stuff rolls downhill.
