"Feeling Through" Community Discussion with Film Director Doug Rolan
This event does not require registration.
The DeafBlind Community and Allies will be discussing the short film "Feeling Through" and sharing their feelings, thoughts, and questions with film director Doug Roland.
This workshop will be conducted in American Sign Language on Zoom. There will be captioning and voice interpreting. Each person's turn speaking will have them spotlighted. There are 2 rooms for this workshop. Any additional accomodations you may need, please contact us.
We will start at 7 pm EST with explaining how the meeting will run.
From 7 to 8 pm EST, only the Moderators, Doug Roland, and Interpreters will have videos on. All participant videos will be off.
The Moderators will take turns sharing questions, comments, and suggestions from the community. They will give Doug time to answer after they share the question.
If you have any questions or comments you want added to the list, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
From 8 to 9 pm EST, participant videos can be turned on, and we will open the floor for questions and discussion from our audience.
If you wish to ask a question or make a comment, please raise your hand to the camera. Please do not use the “Raise hand” button. The Moderators will decide in what order people will be given the floor.
Wait for the spotlight before you start signing. Remember, if you are not spotlighted, not everyone can see you. Please respect turn taking to provide better access. If you will be voicing, please wait for the interpreter to be spotlighted.
Please have a contrasting background and a solid color contrasting shirt. Do not use white or bright colors. This makes it hard for some people to see. For light skin tones, have a dark color shirt and background. For dark skin tones, have a medium to dark color background and a pastel to medium color shirt.
Do not sit with a window or bright light behind you.
Please identify yourself when you are spotlighted. Name and description of what you look like so CFs can explain what you look like.
Please slow down when signing. This will give CFs, interpreters, and captioning time to catch up.
