My name is Shoshana Brand. I started Blue Rose Videos because I have a vision impairment. I love to watch videos but I could not always tell what was going on! To solve that problem I got some descriptive videos, but I had to buy them or get a small selection from the library. That is why I thought of beginning a described video rental service. I know how much more I enjoy movies that have been described, and I wanted to make them available to others with visual impairments.
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do! And the best part is that now you can rent described videos without the cost of buying them. Enjoy!
Blue Rose Videos is a project of Alchemia, a nonprofit organization founded in 1998 to provide creative vocational and expressive arts opportunities for individuals with disabilities. A vital part of our program is the Dream Building Lab, in which participants are supported in transforming their own exciting business ideas into hands-on realities.
We are extremely proud to be involved in the evolution of Shoshana Brand’s dream, Blue Rose Videos With a Voice, which will address an important need in the community, and may inspire the realization of unprecedented new dreams in the future.
