This workshop examines the parallels between cinematic techniques and ASL grammar conventions such as use of space, depiction, sign modification, and facial effect, and includes some of the most important conventions for conveying meaning through particular camera and editing techniques (as well as some of the specialized vocabulary of film production) to these and other parts of ASL grammar commonly employed by native AL users.

"Space Walk: Proposal for Tracking and Using Depictive Space” -
