Abstract

Blind-accessible films offer blind and visually impaired individuals the opportunity of enjoying a cinematic experience alongside the rest of the audience. Wei Ma is a member of the China Film and Television Association of Higher Education Institutions. His book, How to Make Blind-accessible Films in China, provides an overview of the evolution of blind-accessible films in Europe and the United States, elaborates on the growth and development of blind-accessible films in China, and provides a comprehensive exploration of the theory behind audio description (AD) and AD script-writing methods for blind-accessible films. In this interview, Ma Wei elaborates on blind-accessible film AD script-writing skills from both practical and theoretical perspectives and discusses some creative rules, methods, and techniques in AD. This interview was conducted online in January 2022 and is based on the final interview transcript in Chinese, which Wei Ma confirmed in May 2022.
