About Raina



Biography:

At the Northern Film School, Raina directed DRIVE, a short drama (22mins). DRIVE was the first fiction film to be audio-described at production stage. For this innovation, Raina was awarded 'The Best Contribution to Disability Culture Award', by Picture This Film Festival, Canada...

 

Full C.V.:

Raina's TV experience began in 1990, when she joined BBC TV as an Assistant Producer, directing news stories, short documentaries and music videos, for "One In Four", a current affairs magazine programme on disability issues. Among the first-ever intake of disabled programme-makers, Raina was involved in the forefront of disability programming and played a role in the setting up of the broadcast world's first Disability Programmes Unit. Whilst with BBC TV, she also produced and directed a corporate training film, INTO ACTION...

Magazines:

Dail (Disability Arts in London Magazine)

Allan Sutherland:

Interview with Raina Haig by Allan Sutherland. "It was thanks to the festival that I got my biggest job to date: as director of GETTIN OFF, a half hour drama for Channel 4's Dogma TV series. I've enjoyed feeling part of a happening thing: the festival is part of a growing international disability filmmaking scene. Every year I've been inspired by the quality and variety of work being made by disabled people all over the world. It's a new collective presence."...

 

Audio Description: art or industry?

DRIVE (UK 1997) is the first film to have Audio Description fully integrated into the production. DRIVE's director, Raina Haig, told me, 'I wanted a product that presented one seamless creative vision.' Raina was delighted that all the films had been audio-described at LDAF's (London Disability Arts Forum) 2002 film festival. 'I'm in seventh heaven. This is the first time in over a decade in film that I'm at a film festival and feeling fully involved, fully absorbed rather than feeling as if I'm sitting on the outside. It makes me glad to be working in film'...

"I have a very strong imagination and power of visualisation, which comes out when I'm planning films."
