Need inspiration to turn that film idea into a script?


Charlie Swinbourne

Then learn from the experts in this deaf-led, informative workshop. The workshop will focus on different methods of producing a script – the written word and sign language, led by two well-known deaf scriptwriters / filmmakers Charlie Swinbourne and Brian Duffy. Charlie, who is also a journalist, won an RTS award for writing the sketch show Deaf Funny, which he also directed, and has written a range of Deaf comedies and dramas. Brian wrote and acted in his own comedy sitcom Small World which was aired on TV via BSL Zone. He uniquely produced his script for Small World using sign language which contributed to the success of the series.
