  • On Demand Entertainment published this video item, entitled “SOUND OF METAL: Riz Ahmed On Learning Drumming AND Sign Language For New Role” – below is their description.

    Riz Ahmed was “completely out of his comfort zone” when filming drama Sound of Metal, a film about an American punk-metal drummer whose life is upended when he abruptly loses his hearing while on tour.

    The British actor and rapper had to learn American Sign Language and the drums for his role of Ruben Stone – and the performance has earned him an Oscar nomination.

    Four months before shooting, Ahmed moved to Brooklyn to work with co-writer and director Darius Marder, learn the drums from scratch and immerse himself in ASL by working intimately with the Brooklyn Deaf community.
