What makes writing scripts for audio description so rewarding?
It is knowing that the audio description can make a film accessible to those who are visually impaired.
It is also the challenge of crafting clear, informative and engaging descriptions in the gaps between the dialogue and sound effects and doing this in language that reflects the film’s tone and soul.
I was fortunate enough to be trained in Audio Description scripting by one of the most talented authorities in the field, Veronika Hyks, and have had the privilege of writing audio description scripts for a number of major feature films including the powerful and hard-hitting award-winning Hunger which posed a different challenge with its largely dialogue-free action.
My most recent audio description is for a heart-rending and heart-warming feature film Mia And The White Lion.
