Gaming Through New Eyes: Born Blind, Gamer with Passion

This is a short documentary about Toby Ott, a man who was born with Bilateral Anopthalmia, or in other words, without eyes. This didn’t stop him from discovering the medium of video games, and his childhood interest grew into a lifelong passion. This is a whole new perspective on video games, from the imagination of someone who has never known what it is to have sight.

Berk Icel was inspired to shoot this documentary when Toby emailed him to express how much he enjoyed the content on his channel. After he learned that he had been blind since birth he wanted to know more, and as their correspondence progressed he felt compelled to visit him to hear his story and share it with the world. This was a solo 0 budget filmmaking project whose core premise was to tell Toby’s story in the hope that it might encourage developers to add greater accessibility features for the blind.
