American Sign Language Animation Project
From Patricia Young, ASL Teacher:
In our American Sign Language (ASL) class, Jenna C. '22 has been in ASL Honors for many semester cycles and has done quite a few of the traditional Honors projects. One of Jenna's favorite animated characters signs really fast and we discussed how easy or difficult that would be to create in animation. She wanted to take on the project of creating her own animated GIF, which you can see in the image below. While it looks like a quick clip, this work contains over 50 different layers in a digital editing program, and it took Jenna well over 10 hours to create.
