My name is Sahera Khan; I am British South Asian Deaf and Muslim My native language is British Sign Language and I am currently a freelance writer, artist/actress, filmmaker and YouTuber. My website is sahera1.tumblr.com.
In summer 2019 I will make a short film called ‘Blind to See’. ‘Blind to See’ is a working title; the genre of the film is drama and it talks about LGBT+ issues. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of D/deaf Muslim LGBT+ minority.
The film would be suitable for a wide diverse audience anywhere from young people to older adults, especially the Muslim audience.
A brief synopsis: Character A and Character B are close family, one of them is LGBT+ and they want to reveal this to the other.
The project will cost £800 and this will be spent on production costs: fees for my time, cameraperson fees, editing fees, travel expenses, cast expenses, possible insurance costs, hire costs for day shoot at a cafe and film festival entry fees.
