New fund for Web Clips

We want short video clips for the BSL Zone website. The clips can be from one to seven minutes long.

We are looking for interesting ideas so if you have a good story (eg: an interview, an animation, a d/Deaf event or a short drama) which you want to record and edit into a short clip then let us know. 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.

Below are some examples which show a range of different ideas.
