A short documentary in which a deaf actor talks to us about his experiences, deaf culture and the messages that hearing people need to listen to.
We’re making this film to raise deaf awareness within the hearing community in regards to how deaf people are treated, whether it’s within their own family, social situations, or work. We hope it will create a further understanding of the ways in which the hearing community can do small things that would be extremely helpful to some deaf people, such as improving communication and accessibility.
This film is very important to me. As a deaf director who has gone through the struggles that our subject has, it’s a topic that is very close to my heart, and by doing this film it will spread awareness to those who watch it.
I hope this could be a start in not only raising awareness, but by donating, it could lead to a bigger project that involves more deaf people and help to raise the statistics of deaf people in media. The lack of representation they currently have is leading to lack of knowledge and understanding of the deaf community.

Where will the money go?
The money we raise will go towards:
- Our contributor William Grint - £100
- Travel, as we had to carry around a lot of heavy filming equipment in and around London so it made using public transport difficult. We had to use taxis as a safer and more efficient way of transporting our crew and equipment - £50
- Any additional money we raise will go towards festival submissions
We also have some rewards for anyone who supports us by donating!
