About the Film

Signing Singles is a short subject, dark comedy about two young singles looking to mingle. Alex (Orlando Goncalves) and Jade (Caroline Moyer) meet through an online dating service for Deaf singles. The film focuses on their first date. This quickly turns into a date from hell when we realize that neither Alex or Jade really are who they claimed to be online!

As you might imagine, the film is almost entirely in American Sign language. Don’t worry, there will be subtitles for the Signing-Impaired. We believe the film will serve as great exposure for ASL, a method of communication severely underrepresented in mainstream entertainment.

Written and Directed by Daniel Keenan, the film is shot in a beautiful black and white, High Definition format. Although the script does feature some adult themes, all of the content would be acceptable in a PG-13 film.
