The Deaf Film Camp’s sign-language rendition of Phillip Phillip’s “Home” is going viral for its inspirational message.
Performed completely in American Sign Language, the music video documents the camper experience at Deaf Film Camp, a two-week program dedicated to training aspiring deaf filmmakers.
The American Idol winner's catchy tune is the perfect backtrack to convey the messages of hope, possibility and support that are present as the campers find a “home” in the Deaf Film Camp.
“The video’s shots of actors on stage, artists in action, and filmmakers in training highlight the emotional connection that our campers have made with each other,” reads the video description.
The Deaf Film Camp also went viral last year when they filmed and produced a music video to Pharell’s hit song “Happy.” The video was viewed over 1.4 million times on YouTube, and was even noticed by Pharell himself.
The Deaf Film Camp is the only camp in the world of its kind. The staff and counselors teach the deaf campers (ages 13-16) the art of deaf filmmaking, and with the guidance of successful filmmakers, the campers, ages 13 to 16, shot, edited and produced their ASL “Home” music video.
