I am finally getting into some projects that have been backburning for some time. This video is a collaboration between myself and my daughter’s ASL teacher, Judie Birchfield. Judie runs a group called Signsations. They perform for primarily hearing audiences here where we live in the triangle region on NC. They sign in interpretive ASL to contemporary music. That way the audience can learn a bit of ASL (by hearing the music and seeing the signs), as well as see the beauty and artistry inherent in ASL.
My daughter first met Judie at a Christmas parade that was passing through downtown Chapel Hill. Judie was on a Christmas Parade float with about 8 kids and they were all signing Christmas Carols. At the time Zoe was only 6 but she was really captured by what she saw…and 8 years later she is still a part of Judie’s group.
Recently Judie, Zoe and I have been knocking around the notion of creating some ASL style videos. This was my first crack at making a “music” video. And I can attest that making a music video is a whole lot different that making any other kind. Trying to synchronize the movement and cuts with the music is tough!
Anyway…I hope you enjoy it. Oh..BTW…when you hover over the HD logo choose 1080 for the best viewing resolution as Vimeo defaults to a lower res setting.
