The Deaf Family

Before he was a star on "Switched at Birth," Sean Berdy appeared in other films, including this 12-part branded (it was sponsored by a VRS service) film about a deaf family. This film was released in 2008 and was not conceived as a web series - the term web series did not exist yet. However, since it is in 12 parts and is only available online it loosely meets the definition of web television. This may be the first known deaf web series. Sign language with subtitles only in parts 1 and 2. After part 2, there are no subtitles and only signing. Volunteers needed to help add subtitles! Add subtitles to the videos on Amara.org and notify us via a comment, or a tweet, to @captionaction2. Or message us on the Captioned Web TV facebook page.

Part 3 partially subtitled (help is needed to finish the subtitling - see the subtitles that have brackets around them): http://www.amara.org/en/videos/jcajOagjviuA/info/mosdeux-the-deaf-family-part-3-of-12/
