FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
March 30, 2009 – Detroit, Michigan – OIC Movies announces the launch of www.oicmovies.com an online channel for news, entertainment and information exclusively in American Sign Language (ASL).
The website is designed for use by the Deaf and hard of hearing communities, where ASL is their native language. The site features ASL content curated and organized by sign language professionals, pop-up video explanations in ASL on how to navigate the website, and Deaf on-camera talent.
In addition to curated content, original videos are produced by the OIC Movies team on Deaf culture and a variety of other topics not currently available anywhere else in America Sign Language.
OIC Movies reporter Mary Luczki has always wanted to deliver news and information in her first language, America Sign Language (ASL) but until now was limited by technology. “This has been a life-long dream of mine. Twenty years ago all we had to work with was VHS tape. I’m very excited about this business.”
OIC Movies will be sponsoring the Deaf Teen America Pageant at the Emerald Theater in Mt. Clemens, Michigan on April 10th and 11th. The OIC story booth will be on-site to record participants and attendee stories for broadcast on oicmovies.com.
The vision of OIC Movies is to provide the best available resource for news, information and entertainment in American Sign Language. We do this by producing original programming in ASL and organizing available ASL content from the web.
OIC Movies is a full-service production company, specializing in American Sign Language production. Services include translation of existing content into American Sign Language and the design and production of original American Sign Language content.
