Sonnet 29 is one of 154 sonnets penned by William Shakespeare. I can never really follow any of Shakespeare sonnets. But Rowan Brooks decided to portray one of his Sonnet 29 short stories in American Sign Language. Watching the video, I finally can understand!
Miranda Medugno, currently a Theater major at Gallaudet University, played the main character.
Rowan's "Sonnet Series: Suite 2" short film premiered at Scary Cow, an indie film co-op at Castro Theater last weekend.
If you missed the film, Rowan was kind to share the link to his film. All three short films are shown with captions. The third film, which starts at 6.46 minutes, you may see a familiar setting. Yes, the scenes were shot at Mozzeria!
It was fascinating to watch the actual process of making the movie.
