I woke up with this song in my head, so I Googled it and found this video. I’m so glad I did. I didn’t know the singer was related to Peter Capaldi, and I thought it was really sweet that his cousin acted in his video. It’s a very moving story and you have to watch it till the end to fully appreciate it— but I won’t tell you what it is, because you know, “Spoilers.”
I was hired to record a voice narration of this video that was originally recorded in American Sign Language. I was given an English translation and, after watching the video, I made a few minor adjustments to the English with the producer’s permission. The main challenge was to figure out exactly where I needed to speak faster or slower to keep up with the signing. This was a good experience in translation and voiceover work!
Thank you, Arizona Commission for the Deaf and Hard of Hearing (ACDHH) and Arizona Freelance Interpreting Services (AZFLIS) for this opportunity. Thank you, also, Jimmy Wilson IV. I hope I did you justice.
