Creating a realistic set for a TV show can be pretty hard. But how do you create a set for a world that is blind? How would it look different to the world that we know in real life?
In this featurette, Apple TV shows us how they created the sets for their new series See. The programmes takes place in a version of Earth where everyone is blind, meaning that they have to build up entire societies from scratch, all without the use of their sight.
We learn how Apple consulted people who suffered from blindness and asked what would be different if we designed a society and living space without sight. Sound becomes far more important, so conveying information and location through noises is much more common. Furthermore, the sense of touch would be used a lot more as well. In the tribe in See, they use scarring to denote each others rank in the tribe. Clothing that shows where you place on the hierarchy is useless, so having marks that can be felt on your body would be one of the only ways that you could accurately be able to prove your standing to others.
