Watch: Deaf Camp return one year after their viral smash ‘Happy’ with their ASL version of ‘Home’

Posted on September 25, 2015

One year after their viral smash ASL version of Happy, the gang from Deaf Camp in America, including several British filmmakers have made a new ASL video which has already clocked up over 100,000 views.

Louis Neethling, Deaf director from the UK who was one of the teachers, and recently came home from the camp, told us:

It was a privilege to be involved in such a rare and exciting event such as Camp Mark Seven.

Rare because the camp had International Deaf film and TV professionals teaching, Deaf counsellors, Deaf chefs, Deaf leaders, Deaf organisers – everyone was Deaf.

Exciting because the International group of 65 Deaf teenagers were brilliant – they made the films themselves – no adult intervention.

The Teens were intelligent, articulate and creative – The future looks bright for the next Deaf generation.

You can see some photos from Louis below the video:
