This is incredible news! Open captions are extremely beneficial to Deaf/Hoh individuals, people whose second language is English, people with auditory processing disorders, Neurodivergent people, and so many more. Thank you, AMC, for making a point to include us. We’re looking forward to watching Lauren Ridloff shine in Eternals and being able to appreciate the film fully, the same way other theatregoers can!

Descriptive Transcript:

Darian, left, is a white woman with short with brown hair and glasses wearing a blue tee shirt that says TRUBIZ and Ren, right, is a white woman with brown hair wearing a brown tee shirt They stand in the Morpheyes Studio lab in front of a white cabinet covered in various Deaf and/or film related stickers and prints.

The first clip shows Ren ready to begin but Darian is touching her nose.

The second clip shows Darian begin but Ren is blinking.

The third clip shows both of them giggling.

The fourth clip begins the video

Both: Hi hi hi!

Ren: Last week our team did some filming for “Deaf and…,” our new documentary. We recorded groups of groups of scholars and experts discussing various topics related to Deaf culture. And, wow, did we learn a lot!

Darian: Right. We’re also lucky because a few participants were able to fly to Rochester to be part of the group discussions. It was incredible because we wanted to make sure different perspectives from all across the US would be in the documentary. But there are so many more people we could interview, and the more donations we receive, the more people we can include.

Ren: Right our campaign has raised about $7,500, but our goal is $10,000 and next week is the final week for donations. If you want to track our progress, look on our socials for the updates we will be posting all through next week.

Darian: If you’ve already donated, thank you! And if you havent donated, just know that if you donate $100 (or $50 if you’re a student), you get a Special Thank You in the credits of the film!

Ren: All of us at Morpheyes really appreciate your support. Without you, we couldn’t make this film.

Both: Thank you!

On a green couch we see Ren, Darian, and three tan-skinned boys jump up and sign THANK YOU THANK YOU.

Our motion logo for Deaf And… plays: Green background with arrows and plus symbols moving upwards. Morpheyes Studio at NTID logo appears and moves to the corner of the screen. A hand appears and spells “D-E-A-F” and signs “AND” in ASL, which pulls into frame a black screen that reads “SHOW YOUR SUPPORT Donate and follow @MorpheyesStudio for updates” with icons for vimeo, twitter, facebook, instagram, and youtube

Wrapped on day 3 of filming our “Deaf and...” documentary. Halfway there! Big thanks to our Deaf crew, fantastic Deaf participants, & our Deaf co-directors.

Swipe to see our Director of Photography working hard!

ID: Picture taken from the back of the stage, there are four Deaf people in the four chairs which are set up in a half circle, the co-directors are sitting in front of the camera, facing the participants. There are four big lights surrounding them.

That’s right, “Deaf and… (ReSIGNifying Deaf Culture)” will be ABOUT, BY, and FOR Deaf people! And we are going to bring it right back to YOU, the Deaf people! Once we complete the documentary we will do traveling screenings across the US so we can all feel proud and united.

She is wearing a grey jacket and a blue tee “TRU BIZ.” Ren, right, is white with brown hair. She is wearing a black shirt that reads “JUST SIGN IT.” with an ILY hand shape underneath the text, angled to look like the Nike logo.
Ren signs “This series will be about Deaf people made by Deaf people for Deaf people!”

ID: Darian, an olive-skinned girl with brown hair tied up, is wearing a pink blouse and standing in front of a greenscreen wall. She signs a phrase in ASL that has no *direct* English translation. The ASL GLOSS is roughly: FRAME-EAR? NO. MOVE-TO-FRAME-FACE, MOVE-TO-FRAME-EVEN-LARGER. It is a translation of the title of our documentary and means to reframe Deaf to mean not only hearing loss, but much, much more.

Open Letter in ASL about Intersectionality

After some feedback from the community in regards to our upcoming series, See Me Now, which is focused on inclusion and diversity, we have decided to put it on hold until further notice and address these concerns. The word “intersectionality” (as coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, 1989) was used by us incorrectly in our previous video; thank you to the community members who pointed this out to us.

Curious about the term intersectionality? Watch this ASL resource!

It is a little known fact that July is Disability Pride Month in the US. We celebrate Disability Pride in July because it coincides with the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in 1990, and this year marked the 30th anniversary of its signing. In celebration, we wanted to boost recognition of this proposed Disability Pride Flag, which was created by Ann Magill with significant input from the Disability Community. The flag incorporates vast symbolism about the Disabled experience and makes a point to be inclusive of any and all disabilities. Disabled people have secured basic rights with the ADA, but are still fighting for social change and acceptance. Disabled members of the Morpheyes team have expressed that the personal rejection and suppression of a Disabled identity is detrimental to the individual, and to society, so this Disability Pride Month we want to let their flag fly! And you can, too. Happy Disability Pride Month.
