Let’s face it: We’re theatre people, not film people.
Still, the Kickstarter campaign really needed a video to explain the background behind this production of Police Deaf Near Far, and to let supporters get to know the people behind the production. We were each interviewed about our thoughts about the production, and we finished each interview with the same phrase in ASL. Roughly translated into English, it means
“Your help is vital for this theatre production to be a success.” Seems simple, right?
Check out this behind-the-scenes look at our Kickstarter video shoot to see how things went.
