Ben Steiner Bursary Workshop

Last weekend was a very busy and a successful one for Zebra Access/ Deaffest!  The Ben Steiner Bursary workshop which took place at Wolverhampton Science Park saw eight enthusiastic participants successfully accepted to enter the scheme.

 

Award-winning Director John Maidens led the workshop and did a fantastic job as always in educating the participants in the areas of script writing, production, marketing and pitching.

The Ben Steiner Bursary was first launched in 2009, set up in memory of Ben Steiner who died in 2000.  The Bursary is a bi-annual event for talented emerging deaf and hard of hearing filmmakers over the age of 18.

 

While it was a weekend of learning the ropes, the two-day course was also an opportunity to meet new faces and form friendships.  At the end of the workshop, the participants departed for home having learnt a thing or two (or rather, several!)

 

Armed with their new knowledge, the participating filmmakers will soon be pitching their film concept to a judge panel of high profile media experts.

 

All the best to them!
