  • Project Details
    Casting "Green Grass," a short film which is backed by a public funding body. Synopsis: ‘Green Grass’ tells the story of 2 D/deaf university students and the way that they both navigate finding themselves & their identity alongside one another. Green Grass takes us into the world of partying, studying, and growing up at university through the experience of two D/deaf teenagers, Declan and Claire. Opposite in so many ways, one being a disengaged coaster, the other an unstoppable eco-activist, it is only a matter of time before their differences bubble to the surface and threaten not just their joint science assignment, but also their entire worlds and identities. And yet, forced to work together on the mudflats and pebbled shores of South England, they can’t deny the seeds of something more sincere is fighting its way through the grit and dirt of their friendship, searching for light, pushing back against the undergrowth that has been keeping them trapped their entire childhood. At some point, they will both have to decide between the person they want to be and the person they can’t become.

    Production states: "We are shooting this project with a 50:50 split of hearing:D/deaf cast & crew, and as such, we will be implementing accessibility practices on set. We really want this project to act as a case study to the industry for how accessible sets can be ran, and because of this, we are looking for passionate individuals who are willing to be part of the journey as we figure out these processes together.

    It’s imperative to us that these two lead roles are played by D/deaf actors. As mentioned above, we will be creating our own set practices including having on set interpreters, having hearing crew members learn basic signs, shooting at a slower pace to allow for better communication etc, but we are also open to discussing with our actors what they would need in terms of access support to be as comfortable as possible on set."
