After making a variety of programs in this diverse area, it’s clear the talents of people with disabilities are under represented on the big screen, the little screen and online. Creating screen content that addresses this inequity is something we feel passionate about. Torrid Films seeks clients and collaborators to share in our vision to increase screen representation of actors with disabilities in Australia. We also seek to make more opportunities that support the talents of people with disabilities behind the camera as well as in front of it.
Involvement of both experienced and emerging actors with disabilities in film and television productions can require a range of different considerations and approaches. Torrid Films also provides consultation services to productions seeking to cast/engage and otherwise work with actors with disabilities, especially those with intellectual disabilities.
