Austin Andrew’s creative and imaginative story of a Deaf Ninja is phenomenal!
In the signed video clip below, Austin talks of the old kind of hearing aids his deaf brother used to wear, the kind that hung around the neck with the big body-aid box in the front of his chest. He tells how he used to tease his older brother about those funny wires that connected from the box to his hearing aids. But his brother’s revenge was to take out those hearing aids and whip and swipe Austin with the wires! Not fun! In his defense, Austin’s creative imagination took over as he envisioned a Deaf Ninja using that transformative box, those wild wires, agile movements, and keen eye-sight to fight off other Ninja enemies at time-warp speed — all before the first raindrop falls!
Austin’s use of ASL Classifiers is superb! A must-see for anyone who is learning or knows ASL (American Sign Language)! I especially love how Austin moves his body and hands to look almost like he’s performing out-of-this-world Matrix-like movements! It’s ASL cinematography at its best! Austin, I applaud your work! It’s ingenious!
