Rizal’s Heroism and Patriotism Interpreted in Filipino Sign Language

October 13, 2011

The film on Rizal’s interpretation in FSL of five of his most popular poems is forming. Right now, except for Flowers of Heidelberg, they are individually edited. It is my problem to connect them all. The intro will help definitely. Music will also thread them all. I need to finish soonest. But I still need a lot of shots to make that happen. In film editing, there are many transition devices that can do that. But that would be my last resort. What I have in mind should first be tried, and trying all ways to achieve them should be maximized.

Anyway, the poem’s sequence will be: A FILIPINAS as interpreted by Aldrin Gabriel, A LA JUVENTUD FILIPINA [Mark Gaspar], CANTO DE MARIA CLARA [Jorelle Faytaren], A LAS FLORES DE HEIDELBERG [Romalito Mallari], and ULTIMO ADIOS [Aldrin Gabriel]. All interpreters are Deaf.
