Testimonials

“Thank you so much for all your hard work and holding our hands through this process. I decided to listen to the audio description as I’ve never had reason to listen to an audio description before. I was so impressed by the detail, and visually descriptive qualities, it really hooked me and made me appreciate the film in a very different way.” – Kim Hopkins, Producer/Director

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your Audio Description work on this year’s Edinburgh 48 Hour Film Project. The screening was a huge success and our visually impaired team were delighted!” – Louise Knowles, 48 Hour Film Edinburgh

“I watched the captioned version of Red Herring and a few minutes in I was sure I knew which company was responsible for the subtitles. They were class! I’d watched another film with very bad subtitles that night so it was super nice to see some quality work. And it was no surprise when I saw that Screen Language was credited for subtitles.” – Alicja, audience member and subtitler
