With the neverending sea of remakes, 3D, and gripe-worthy cinema news, let's briefly turn to cinema news that's utterly inspiring and wild. The Boston Globe has just published a piece of Emmy-winning producer Kevin Bright and his latest work -- teaching blind students how to be filmmakers.

After spending years in Hollywood, producing shows like Friends, In Living Color, and Dream On, Bright was itching to move on. As Joey was bombing, he was offered a teaching gig at his alma mater, Emerson College. A one-semester job turned into three years, which got an additional jolt last year when he was at a Celtics-Lakers game. The students at the Perkins School for the Blind had sang the national anthem, and Bright was so impressed that he donated $1,000 to the school. His donation led to an invite to tour Perkins, and when he saw a letter written by Helen Keller that was framed on the wall -- with perfect penmanship -- a wild idea starting bubbling that he wasn't sure would work: He would teach the kids filmmaking.
