In May I became one of two people selected to participate in Zoom Focus, the advanced Deaf film-making scheme run by Neath Films and Samuel Dore in association with the BSLBT. This follows on from the success of CODA, a drama short where I made my debut as writer and director under the Zoom banner in 2011. Click here for more details.
I am proposing a 28′ documentary called Grief and The Deaf Child (working title), which explores a longstanding issue that strikes at the heart of the Deaf Community and affects long-term relationships, families, behaviour and attitudes.
I’m terribly excited about it as it’s a topic that has never been covered in the media from a Deaf perspective, and it’s earmarked to go on TV release in November.
Development is already under way, and I’ll be posting updates here about it soon.
