Daniel explains to Judy about his journey to becoming an actor as a deaf person.
This video is great for ASL to English practice, as it is interactive, but the conversation is carried by the ASL user. It includes life stories about getting a start in acting, meeting famous people, and the TV show “Switched at Birth.”
This is a video that is sufficient for ample ASL to English practice as the Deaf consumer communicates the most during this discussion. It is very conversational with ample time for turn taking. This video is at about an intermediate interpreting level.
The interactive videos in this series were created in partnership during the Graduation to Certification program through a collaboration between the CATIE Center and the Duluth Branch of the NAACP. These unscripted conversations were interpreted by novice interpreters in the GTC program and the video was edited to the best of our ability to remove the interpretation to create practice material. There may be some legacies of the original interpretation such as repetition due to the original interpreter asking for clarification or sometimes all of the interpretation may not be edited out due to overlapping communication.
