Currently working on getting ASL animated for the quote from Katherine Bouton's book Shouting Won't Help: Why I - and 50 Million Other Americans - Can't Hear You.
"Today the term 'deaf' is politically incorrect for someone like me.
But I like the word 'deaf.' It's blunt, it's sassy. It's a way to talk back to your handicap"
Narrated by Deborah Rookey, and the scene is for my motion graphics Senior Capstone for Spring 2018. It is still work in progress. I don't like the flickers, but I will edit the blank frames at the end when I feel that I have smooth enough transition between each signs. The reason for doing that is because I am not familiar with ASL and I want to make sure that I am most accurately representing Deborah's translation of the quote above!
ASL sign by sign translates to this:
"Today Word Deaf #politically (she spells it out)
not precise for person me-same-as,
But I like Deaf
Deaf mocks my #handicap"
