A company name?


Recommended Posts

I work for a very small company called Immersive Hollywood, and we're looking at using motion capture suits for some of our services. The suits include gloves, and are good enough to (somewhat) accurately record sign languages. As part of the showreel I'm putting together for our website, I thought it would be nice to start it off by having a 3D character sign 'Hello! Welcome to Immersive Hollywood' in BSL.

Except... 'Immersive Hollywood' is enough of a mouthful when spoken, and would be an absolute nightmare for me (a newbie as far as BSL goes) to fingerspell in its entirety, especially for what's meant to be a short clip. I thought about maybe shortening it to 'I M M H W' as this video would only be for our website, which has the full company name plastered everywhere? But I don't know if there's maybe already syntax around company name signs, and I've also read that it's insensitive for people who aren't a part of the d/Deaf community to pick their own name signs (admittedly, it was talking about people's names, but I'd rather ask for advice here than make any assumptions).

    • Hello everyone! My name is Jason and I am trying to learn BSL using the online course over on british-sign; I'm about half way through it at the moment. I became more interested in learning to sign because I feel as though everyone should be able to communicate and it seems unfair that BSL isn't - or at least wasn't when I was at school - part of the standard curriculum. I was also inspired to start learning because of seeing more deaf representation being portrayed in the media (such as Co
