Below are some suggestions for facilitating PR related activities:

  • Directions should not be given from behind camera during a photo call.
  • Engage an Interpreter for photo shoots and media calls to ensure effective communication between photographer, interviewer and Deaf performers.
  • Engage in a conversation with the photographer or interviewer beforehand regarding set-up and process for interpretation so that s/he knows that the interpreter will require time to convey the message and provide appropriate instruction.  Naturally, a photo shoot by a photographer who signs will not require this step.
  • Interviews with media tend to be booked last minute which can make it challenging to book interpreters for these interviews. A suggestion is to request that all the interviews be scheduled on a specific day and time and ensure that all of the actors, Deaf community consultant and interpreters are available at that specified time. Otherwise, if there is a primary interpreter assigned to the production, discuss including a clause in their contract that interpreting interviews are among their assigned duties as long as they occur during their scheduled dates/times.

For discussion of reviews and example of a vlog review, go to Post Mortem in the Post Production section.
