Creator Bio: Tommy Edison, who has been blind since birth and is known as the Blind Film Critic, uses humor to answer the most popular questions about living without sight and takes on challenges which test his other senses.
Each week, we post new episodes of The Tommy Edison Experience on YouTube. The series features Tommy Edison, blind since birth, who uses humor to answer the most popular questions about living without sight and takes on challenges which test his other senses.
Here are some highlights from the past few months.
On August 9, 2016, “Don’t Breathe” director Fede Alvarez sent out a tweet that said “We learned lots from @BlindFilmCritic while writing “Don’t Breathe” check out his videos, they’re #MindBlowing.” So we reached out to him to request an on-camera interview and ended up at the press junket for the film 2 days later.
