We want short video clips that will be shown here on the BSL Zone website.

The clips can be from 1 to 7 minutes long.

We are looking for interesting ideas so if you have a good story which you want to record and edit into a short clip then let us know.

Your film could be an interview, an animation, a d/Deaf event or a short drama.

The film must appeal to the d/Deaf BSL community.

We will choose the best ideas and you could get a budget of £300-£1,000 to make your video clip.


Four web clips have been made already. Here are some examples:

Lost Community (documentary)

He Stood Me Up (drama)

4 (drama)

How a Deaf woman escaped the floods (documentary)


To apply, send an email to Maggie Swinfen maggie@bslbt.co.uk in BSL (attach a video or a link to your video) or in written English with:

  • Your idea
  • How long your clip would be
  • Who would make this video clip
  • Why you think the d/Deaf community would want to watch it

If you would like to meet and talk to us about an idea, send an email in BSL or English to maggie@bslbt.co.uk.
