The Accessible Filmmaking Guide

Designed for filmmakers and other industry professionals, "The Accessible Filmmaking Guide" uses research-based approaches to ensure that both aesthetics and accessibility are at the forefront of filmmaking processes. As the guide notes, despite over half of current film revenue coming from "translated ... and accessible versions," of films, less than one percent of filmmaking budgets are devoted towards these other versions. This six-part pamphlet discusses various methods to achieve "audiovisual translation and accessibility," in all stages of the filmmaking process, delivering a clear message: "Everybody benefits from accessible filmmaking." Additionally, Part 4 provides a useful "workflow" template that outlines 17 suggested steps toward accessibility, following the usual pre- and post-production process. Dr. Pablo Romero-Fresco, a professor of Translation and Filmmaking, wrote and published the guide in 2018 with assistance from Dr. Louise Fryer, an educator and accessibility advisor. The project received funding from the British Film Institute, as well as support from Archer's Mark, Bertha Foundation, and Doc Society.
