    Get SET-READY Interpreting for Deaf Talent in the Entertainment Industry

    CLICK TO REGISTER

    This workshop series will provide comprehensive training for ASL interpreters

    aspiring to work with Deaf talent in the Film/TV industry.


    With more and more Deaf-centric projects in development, there is a higher demand for ASL Interpreters with set training and experience. Set interpreting is a specialty just like mental health or legal interpreting, so specialized training is required. This unique workshop series will provide the tools needed to be successful working in the entertainment industry with Deaf talent, not only in front of the camera but behind the camera as well. Workshops will include feedback from Deaf actors on what they are looking for in a set interpreter, as well as appearances by film crew members and talent management to advise on how to be effective while interpreting on and off the set.

    Interpreters work hard at perfecting their interpretations for everyday conversations and assignments, but what happens when it is time to voice in a higher register for a presentation or a lecture? In this workshop, we are going to take a dive into what all goes into adequately prepare for higher register voicing, focusing on situation appropriate affect, constructing an equivalent message for hearing consumers and constructing appropriate word and idiom choices.
