We are happy to announce that we are now working with CBC to finally finish off what we started with the post-production of Seen & Heard. The documentary film will now instead be an 8×8 short-doc web series following the adventures of a unique theatre group where Deaf and hearing cast and crew members unite to mount a new Deaf-themed adaptation production of “The Little Mermaid”. The series follows the Deaf cast and crew in their life situations outside of the theatre. From romance hampered by parental prejudice, difficulty in finding and keeping work, to struggles to keep up in a hearing university, the film follows the culture clashes and creativity of a group uniting in their passion to create.
A Sneak Peak
More About The Film
Seen & Heard is a CBC short-doc web series following the ups, downs, and showstoppers of Canada’s unique mixed Deaf and hearing theatre troupe. As they put on a new Deaf-themed adaptation of “The Little Mermaid”, the hearing cast and crew gets a window into the Deaf world. Meanwhile, the film follows the Deaf and hard of hearing cast and crew as they navigate in a world that largely doesn’t realize that they exist.
As the play comes together, a complex and intimate documentary will unfold that demonstrates the culture clashes, creativity, ingenuity and spirit of a group uniting in their passion to share their art with all audiences.
