Film & Television Consultation

With our Los Angeles Sight Center located a stone’s throw from Hollywood, Braille Institute has been providing free technical advising and industry support for the past 50 years. Our professionals have provided actors, directors, screenwriters and producers with expert assistance and training. But you don’t have to be a movie star to benefit from our knowledge. Our experts are available to everyone—from acting students to commercial production companies and studios—to provide free technical advising for your next project.

Our wide range of services includes professional training on how to accurately portray a blind character, as well as how to properly use props such as white canes, braille books, low vision devices and other adaptive technology. We offer both one-on-one and group consultations, as well as site tours and observation of our classes.

Past projects and clients include:
Woody Harrelson in 7 Pounds
Jamie Foxx in Ray
Jessica Alba in The Eye
Nick Nolte in Beautiful Country
and Alex Desert in Becker
