Question by Raja Riaz: How to execute this concept through a silent short film?
It’s about a person coming out of a building labelled ‘School of Dead”. I want to show that person going to different places and look at things which are supposed to be very loud, but he cant hear because he is deaf.
The idea is to showcase how differently deaf people experience things, that we experience daily without noticing how different they would be if they were silent.
I am new to film making so please tell me the proper treatment on how to go about shooting it. Various shots, locations, camera angles etc.

That’s really complicated question.
Your concept has one major flaw – sound waves have vibration. So even if a person if deaf, they could go to a rock concert and still feel the beat and base of the music.
No matter what you put out there – banging symbols, rumbling rocks, explosions – he would always be able to know its there and how big a sound it is.
