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.
During our last trip to VidCon, Toaden K. interviewed me and Tommy Edison about our work on the Blind Film Critic and The Tommy Edison Experience series. Since working together on the channels since 2011, this happens to be the first time Tommy & I have been interviewed together.
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 couple of months.
