Watch the Video! #deaffriendly or #deafchallenged?
Posted by: Staff Writer on Jan. 29, 2015
Actor John Maurcere, known for his role in SuperDeafy, displayed his usual charm and dynamic energy on screen as he engaged real-life Deaf people (not actors) and their real-life #deafchallenged and #deaffriendly stories.
Jules Dameron, Director and Editor says about John, “This was the first project I officially worked on with John Maucere. I loved working with him. His work ethic and professionalism is the best. I respect him for that.” John’s chemistry with William Fidail, the hearing owner of Viscous Dogs where much of the filming took place, was fun, upbeat, and positive. Watching their relationship unfold is the perfect example of Deaf and hearing people working together to create a more #deaffriendly world. By the end, one of the webisode’s best moments was completely unscripted and spontaneous.
Willie takes the black and white #deaffriendly sticker, walks outside his restaurant, and slaps it on the door with a huge grin. Now that’s what we’re talking about!
