British Deaf Association [www.bda.org.uk]
If it wasn't for their bursary, you wouldn't be reading
this page. And if it wasn't for the tireless Lucy,
there wouldn't be a Deaf film festival to show it
at. All you ever wanted to know about British Sign
Language is on this site.
More than just a cinema! Production facilities, equipment
and our on-the-ball Co-Producer, Urmala, who put together
the TB&E crew. Our film was made under the auspices
[www.plotonline.co.uk], committed to developing media
possibilities in the West Midlands. London? Hah!
Editors of TB&E, at their offices on the very
very arty Hoxton Square. Very nice people, too.
Respect to the affable Mark at the Birmingham location
(that's the old Albany, history fans) for sorting
us out two locations within one. We know where we're
staying on weekends away from now on...
Helpful train operator that were only too happy to
let us film at the restored Birmingham Moor Street.
It's far, far nicer rolling into Marylebone on the
Chiltern Turbo, far nicer.
Designing and printing our publicity material (that's
posters to you). Also home of TB&E's token Deaf
Celeb, Mark Wheatley.
Phil and Tessa helped out tremendously on Audition
Day, so Phil's outfit earn a mention here. DD supports
and empowers Deaf and Hard of Hearing people in darkest
Herefordshire and deepest Worcestershire.

Big up to Paul, who was the conduit with Birmingham
Deaf Sports & Social Club during pre-production.
Social nights are Wednesdays and Saturdays if you're
Lighting hire. If you ever forget what a grip house
is like (bulky guys in t-shirts and jeans humping,
lugging and gaffertaping concert-sized boxes into
vans), this is the place to go.
Our lovely Production Manager's website. Included
here just to cheese her off.
