Writing & Directing

Kia Ora,

Red Rock Films are beginning to get our next short into early development and are looking for people to join us on the journey.

The short itself, with the working title “The Dining Table” is about what it means to be deaf or a CODA (child of a deaf adult).

“Its a very intimate piece about what it feels like to communicate with your family when you can’t hear when they don’t speak in sign. a situation many deaf people can relate to.”

This project is being spearheaded by directer Chirstopher Hines, who has been with Red Rock Films since the beginning. “It is important for me to share this story because it is my mothers story of her family dynamic as she was growing up. I am a CODA.”

We are looking for a deaf person, coda or someone who understands / knows the deaf community writer to collaborate on writing the script and getting the story right. It is an evolving work and is not rigid and welcomes someone with personal experience in this situation to bring themselves into the characters & story.

Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
