ASL Role Shifting: He said She said...

From nationally recognized workshop presenter and ASL performer Trix Bruce comes this DVD on role shifting. Role shifting is much more than being a narrator. Narrators take on the role of different people in order to tell stories. It is also important for the audience to know which character is speaking.

This DVD focuses on ASL storytelling techniques for:

  • Developing a story's characters
  • Using role shift, eye gaze, and spatial referencing
  • Identifying speakers
  • Shifting between speakers
  • Matching speakers' affect
  • Understanding the difference between storytelling and discourse

Performed in ASL, No Voice
