Tangible

This DVD was created to provide you with the tools needed to select and practice classifiers as well as to help you to feel comfortable with producing concepts through ASL by using classifiers. Guided instructions and stories will allow you to create your own work and then be able to compare it with Windell “Wink” Smith Jr’s versions of the same stories on this DVD.

Blockbuster

Have you ever seen an ASL story performance and thought, "That's like watching a movie!"?  Television and film use certain conventions (often referred to as the "grammar") when recording and editing audiovisual media.  ASL literature has been found to use the same types of conventions by ASL "writers."  Deaf, interpreters, and students alike should be able to incorporate these into their work.  Cinematic techniques and formulas are already used by the Deaf community.  If someone wants to create captivating “blockbuster” ASL literature or wants to create stunning visual interpreting work, they must be aware and practice these conventions.

This DVD includes some of the most important conventions for conveying meaning through particular camera and editing techniques (as well as some of the specialized vocabulary of film production) through the use of space, classifiers, forced perspective, eye gaze, and other ASL aspects.

My Father's Gift

Looking back, Wink realizes just how much his parents taught him about life, hardship, love, the beauty of ASL, and the value of Deaf Culture. He witnessed firsthand ASL storytelling: being led through each scene and feeling the jolts of the twist and turns no matter how many times he’d seen the story. Those twists and turns he relived with his parents over the years have become a part of him, eventually leading to the creation of My Father’s Gift. This show shares his parents’ powerful story. 

Visit the scene of his mother’s accident, and the following confusion at the hospital. See his father fight to defend what he believed was right, no matter the cost. Peek later into Wink’s kindergarten class where, as a CODA, he had his first introduction to the hearing world. Audiences can expect joy, frustration, sadness, and hope on this journey. Watch as Wink shares his father’s many gifts.
