Watch: A Western Ted Evans made on a Sunday afternoon about the outlaw Deaf Charley Hanks

February 11, 2014

It is a dream of mine to make a Western one day. I used to love watching them on TV as a kid, even without subtitles because the way they were filmed and the simplistic story lines that they had were often easy to follow.  I’m naturally also interested in deaf history; I find it […]

It’s February, which means that a lot of people who tried to follow their new year’s resolutions in January have probably given up by now.

The BSLBT’s Zoom film scheme has given a generation of young Deaf filmmakers the chance to make their first film, most memorably Ted Evans’s multi-award winning The End, sending tears rolling down the cheeks of Deaf audiences from Wolverhampton to (next month) Kuala Lumpur. This year’s scheme is the last, for a while at least, […]

Two cowboys square up to one another, gallop so fast on their horses they nearly fall off, and ultimately, confront each other in a shoot-out. But this isn’t a multi-million dollar Hollywood film. This is two deaf actors in what looks like a cardboard set, telling their story through the power of their signing hands […]
