ID: 3823
School: Research Center/Lab
Program: Motion and Light Lab (ML2)
Status: Ongoing
Start date: August 2019
End Date: August 2021


The Motion Light Lab will create an animated short story using motion capture technology to build a 3D signing avatar to tell the story of Eyeth. Eyeth is a traditional folktale in the Deaf community. The aims of this project are to revive the folktale, and create a version that emulates our outlook to the future, expand our production pipeline in 3D development, and contribute to our ASL literature in new forms.
