You can now apply for the Zoom 2014 filmmaking scheme!
Zoom and Zoom Focus are short film schemes which are designed to support the next generation of d/Deaf filmmakers!
Below you will find an application form and guidance notes on the scheme, which can be downloaded for you to read, or you can watch them in BSL!
As part of the scheme, successful applicants will receive five days of training, mentorship, script development support, communication support and production support to help you make your film!
The scheme is looking for strong, original ideas, untold stories about real people in the Deaf community. All films must be suitable for broadcast at 7.30am.
Zoom is aimed at d/Deaf scriptwriters and directors with some experience, but have never made anything that was shown on television. The final Zoom films will be from 10-14 minutes long.
Zoom Focus is aimed at d/Deaf scriptwriters and directors with more experience, but have never made a half-hour film that was shown on television. They must also be capable of making a 30 minute film!
This year, there is also an opportunity called Zoom Shadows which helps six people who don't get through to get more experience of the process!
If you have any questions, please email email@example.com, in written English or with a BSL video!
The closing date for the scheme is 5pm on Friday 28th March 2014.
