For the second year, the campers at Deaf Film Camp
, a two-week summer experience for deaf and hard-of-hearing teens interested in filmmaking, have made a great ASL music video. The video is entirely produced by the campers with guidance from a staff of filmmakers from the deaf community
. This year's selection is Pharrell's "Happy"
, with ASL Interpretation created by Azora Telford
and Rosa Lee Timm
and performed by Telford, Timm, the campers and camp staff.
Last year's video was One Republic's "Feel Again
," with ASL interpretation created and performed by Telford. You can also see other film work
, including some animation, created by last year's campers.
Deaf Film Camp takes place at Camp Mark 7
, in New York's Adirondacks region. The camp provides recreational, educational, leadership and spiritual programs primarily for deaf and hard-of-hearing people. Founded by a Catholic priest in 1979
(but welcoming to campers of all faiths), the camp gets its name from the Bible passage Mark 7:31-37
, "Jesus Cures a Deaf Man."
