40th Anniversary Gala!
Updated Vlog Transcript
Video begins with “DEAF, Inc. 40th Anniversary Gala!” in white letters on a black screen.
Scene opens with a close-up of a man putting on a nice watch. He adjusts his black tie. His hair is slicked back, his beard neatly trimmed. He stands in front of a mirror and smooths out his shirt, tie, and black cardigan. He bends over to pick up a pair of casual blue Converse sneakers. He looks at the shoes with the outfit in the mirror, shakes his head, and puts them back on the floor. He then picks up a pair of black dress shoes, holds them up to the mirror, smiles, and gives a thumbs-up.
Scene changes to a close-up of an iPhone. In a FaceTime call, a woman (Crystal) appears on the screeN. She is standing in a coffee shop, wearing a knitted brown shirt. Her hair is brown and down in loose waves. She smiles broadly.
Crystal: [waving] Hello!! What’s up?
Scene changes to another woman (Alicia), with brown straight hair in a dark green shirt. Behind her is a white wall and a tan chair sits on the right.
Alicia: Hi Crystal! Do you mind helping me figure out what to wear to the Gala?
Crystal: Sure, no problem. What are the options?
Alicia: [picks up dark blue jeans and shows it to Crystal on the phone.]
Crystal: Jeans? No, jeans aren't a good idea.
Alicia: [Shakes head.] No? [Puts jeans down and shows Crystal a dress with blue and white flowers, with a quizzical look on her face.]
Crystal: Yes!! That is perfect and beautiful! Yes! Will I see you at the Gala?
Alicia: Yes, definitely!
