Have you ever seen an ASL story performance and thought, That's like watching a movie!" Television and film use certain conventions (often referred to as the "grammar") when recording and editing audiovisual media. ASL literature has been found to use the same types of conventions by ASL "writers." Deaf, interpreters, and students alike should be able to incorporate these into their work. Cinematic techniques and formulas are already used by the Deaf community. If someone wants to create captivating "blockbuster" ASL literature or wants to create stunning visual interpreting work, they must be aware and practice these conventions.
