Signing Words

For one of my first video assignments for Weeks 10 & 11, I completed Signing Words for 4.5 stars.

{This assignment requires you to take a video of yourself or someone else and finger spell a word or a phrase in Sign Language alphabet and let others guess what you have spelled. Make sure you do a word that is bigger then 5 letters so you can learn some of the letters.}

I didn’t have much experience with Sign Language before making my video, however, at my church the pastor’s wife signs the entire sermon and worship songs for those in our congregation who are deaf. Because I witness this every week, I’ve always been interested in trying my hands (literally) at Sign Language, though I’ve never had the opportunity. This was a fun assignment to complete!

For this assignment, I recorded myself signing the MYSTERY word (Do you know what it is?!) and then uploaded it to Windows Live Movie Maker. From there, I customized the transitions, title page, credits, etc. I hope you enjoyed it! Also, here’s a picture of the American Sign Language Alphabet in case you would like to decode the word I spelled above. And sorry in advance to anyone who is extremely proficient in sign language, I had no idea what I was doing!
