Today’s guest gough, from Berrnuts Productions, really doesn’t let anything get in his way. When the rest of us are making excuses on why we can’t do this or that this legally BLIND director is making films he wants to make. You heard correctly, gough is legally blind and yet he’s a prolific film director running a production company, with employees I might add, and doing it his way. He has shot 14 short films and 1 feature film.
He’s a true inspiration to any filmmaker out there who says they can’t do it. When you listen to his story you will see what an amazing journey he has had to get to this point.
Here’s a bit on gough and his company:
