The Stand Off
Blaine (Deaf) and Rick
banned together as childhood orphans and pledged to protect each other for life. 15 years after they're recruited as kids into B.A.L.A.N.C.E. (a secret government agency that enforces the balance among global power elites) they find themselves on opposite sides of a deadly Stand Off, guns pointed, no way out... until someone dies.
SHOOTING Summer 2021
Laurin, a Deaf first year college student at a mainstream university, wakes up on her first day of classes to find herself TOTALLY ALONE, the world suddenly and completely deserted. She must balance her trying to survive with her need to figure out what happened so she can thrive in this new world, on her own terms. (Production delayed due to COVID-19)

In Post Production
Liam Coleman is a tour de force in this fierce ASL interpretation of classic rock anthem "Bohemian Rhapsody"by Queen
complemented by dynamic animation by Morpheyes. It is ASL storytelling at its best.

(ReSIGNifying Deaf Culture)
Deaf and... ReSIGNifying Deaf Culture is the first of four full-length films by Morpheyes that seek to rally the Deaf community toward political agency and recognition as a linguistic-cultural minority in the U.S. In this first film, we celebrate Deaf culture through a scholarly lens while asking the question: Why is Deaf culture not seen the way other marginalized cultures are recognized in the U.S. And, puts to rest, once and for all, any doubts about whether Deaf culture "is a thing" or not. (Hint: it is.)
