The “Signing Words” assignment required that you “take a video of yourself or someone else and finger spell a word or a phrase in Sign Language alphabet and let others guess what you have spelled.”

I used to know quite a bit of sign language, but I realized that I was a bit rusty as I was making this video. I began by looking up a chart of the ASL alphabet. Then I decided on a message to give… I chose to tie this assignment in with my character and the course theme. I’m going to let people guess what I signed, but I’ll give the answer at the end of this post!

To make the video, I recorded myself using the camera on my laptop. Then I uploaded the video to VideoPad Video Editor. I cut out the audio from the original clip and added my own background music from this website. I also added closing credits to the end of the video. You can see part of my editing process below.

After I was done editing, I downloaded the video to my computer and then uploaded it to YouTube. Here is the finished video below!

Did you guess the message? I signed “Secret Agent Mia Holmes.”
