The Zoom 2014 scheme gives Deaf directors their first experience of making a broadcast film, with support from production company Neath Films.

In this BSL video (right) Jean St Clair, who has been accepted onto the Zoom scheme, tells us about herself and the drama she is making.

Jean explains that she has worked as an actress for years, in theatre, television and film, as well as supporting other Deaf actors in translating their scripts into BSL.

However, with her Zoom film, she will be behind the camera - instead of in front of it!

Her film is a drama which is called If I Don’t Lose, I’ll Lose, and it’s about an actress who tries to lose weight in time for an award ceremony.

Can she do it? Jean explains that the Zoom scheme is very valuable, and she will learn a lot from writing the script and making her film. She adds that perhaps she will make more films if all goes well.
