Watch this video rendition of the Philippine National Anthem with Filipino Sign Language and interpretative dance performed by second year Diploma and Arts and Computer Design students. It has both Tagalog and English captions. The presentation was videotaped behind the picturesque mountains of San Mateo in Rizal province in March 21. The area is a 6,000 sq. m. property where the future site of MCCID will be erected.
This activity was conceptualized by MCCID Faculty Sir Jefferson Cortez as part of his Filipino Sign Language class. Lucky McGill Paltep (the one holding the Philippine Flag), a 2nd year Diploma in Arts and Computer Design Technology (DACDT) deaf student choreographed the sequences. Maricris Siping did the sign language interpretation. Overall director was MCCID Deaf Coordinator Sir Ervin Reyes.
This video was one of the topics posted in the blogs of Sir Jojo Esposa of “Filipino Deaf from the Eyes of a Hearing Person”, Sir Jefferson Cortez of “Meet the Stranger: Something Unique” and Maricar of “The Filipina Soul”.
