Legally Blind Brian Fishchler Laugh For Sight NonProfit

Optelec teamed up with writers, directors and producers Drew Antzis and Tamara Bick who are most notable for work with FunnyorDie.com. The film stars Brian Fischler, a nationally recognized, legally blind stand-up comedian and Founder of Laugh for Sight not-for-profit who was diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa. It was shot throughout San Diego, including footage from Acqua al 2, a popular Italian restaurant in the Gaslamp Quarter.
