I have filmed thousands of people over the years, but just recently I filmed Professor Graeme Clark, a very inspiring man who invented the cochlear implant which enables at least 95% of deaf people to hear again. Not only is he a humble friendly man, he is an absolute pleasure to work with. Prof Clark was derided by the scientific community, with many saying ‘it’ll never work.’ Well, the cochlear implant has transformed the lives of close to 200,000 people. And I had the pleasure of working with this brilliant Australian. Its meeting amazing people like Prof Graeme Clark that keeps me loving my job!
The project was for the 30th anniversary of the world’s first commercial cochlear implant. The world is truly a better place because of him!
