THE DEAF WORLD

For years, we have regularly volunteered our time create content for the Deaf community; this mission stems from Bhulla’s mother being Deaf.
Do not hesitate to get in touch if you have a project involving the Deaf community and need signposting, access, guidance and any other help.
BlueBell Films has a short film about the Deaf community currently in development.

DEAF AWARENESS WEEK

For Deaf Awareness Week 2018, Bhulla led a campaign to bring the hearing world closer to the Deaf world.
He believed it would be great to see local organisations making efforts to celebrate the week so he wrote and made 5 films for social media platforms.
The videos were incredibly well-received, shared with appreciation nationwide, created awareness of Deaf services
and even sparked a mission of improving services for Deaf people at West Midlands Fire Service.
The majority of engagement was on Facebook where the films reached 400,000 people.
