Image description: A black young woman is wearing yellow button-up long sleeves. The background is a white-orange wall. She is putting out her hand as to say “YOU.”

Video description: Black background with white text “M.O.A.I. / By ASL & C” fades to a series of people signing the word “INTERPRET” with four different mouth morphemes: “MM”, “OOO”, “AHH, and “IS.” When they are signing the word with the mouth morpheme, a letter appears in the center of the video that says “M”, “O”, “A”, then “I.” Then, two young adults dance alongside each other and point to a projected screen with the bullet points: “MM”, “OOO”, “AHH”, and “IS” and take turns signing “WHAT?” “OH!”, “UNDERSTAND”, and “SICK!” with their respective mouth morphemes. They dance again and the white text “M.O.A.I.” appears in the center of the video. The camera cuts to one of the young adults, walking down a hallway signing “INTERPRET INTERPRET WANT WANT TAKE-OFF RESEARCH RESEARCH INTERNET NOTHING TEACH-ME NOTHING DO-DO WELL COME-HERE HANDS DIP SIGN YES!”

The camera cuts to four people signing “COME HERE” in different ways with four different mouth morphemes: “MM”, “OOO”, “AHH, and “IS.” Each time, a letter appears in the center of the screen: “M”, “O”, “A”, and then “I.”

Then, two other young adults dance alongside each other and point to a projected screen showing the curve of increasing intensity, starting at “MM.” The camera cuts to a group of people saying “OHH” with the “MM” mouth morpheme. The camera goes back to the two young adults pointing at “OOO” with some additional dancing. The camera then cuts to a group of people saying “OHH” with the “OOO” mouth morpheme. The camera goes back to the two young adults pointing at “AHH” with some additional dancing. The camera then cuts to a group of people saying “OHH” with the “AHH” mouth morpheme. The camera goes back to the two young adults pointing at “IS” with some additional dancing. The camera then cuts to a group of people saying “OHH” with the “IS” mouth morpheme.

Then, one of the young adults from the previous shot signs: “ROLL-UP-SLEEVES, FOLD-ARMS, MMM” with the “MMM” mouth morpheme and corresponding “M” letter on the video. The other young adult signs “PONDER NOTHING” with the “OOO” mouth morpheme and corresponding “O” on the video. Then, the first young adult signs “HOW PRACTICE WORK” with the “AHH” mouth morpheme and corresponding “A” on the video. The second young adult signs “ISOLATE IDEA REALLY-EASY” with the “IS” mouth morpheme and corresponding “I” on the video. Then, four people sign “NO-BIG-DEAL” with four mouth morphemes “MM”, “OOO”, “AHH”, and “IS” with four texts on the screen: “M”, “O”, “A”, and “I.”

The camera cuts to a young adult walking down the hall signing “INTERPRET INTERPRET WORK WORK EXHAUST EXHAUST GET-UNDER-BLANKET THINK DO DO COME DIP-HAND SIGN.”

Then, four people sign “UNDERSTAND” with four mouth morphemes “MM”, “OOO”, “AHH”, and “IS” with four texts on the screen: “M”, “O”, “A”, and “I.”

The camera cuts to a group of people folding their hands on their head to make a “M” shape. The camera moves in slow motion, and the words appear on the bottom left saying “M.O.A.I. / BY ASL & C”. Then, the camera cuts to a line of people taking turns putting out their hands as if holding a microphone. They all drop it at the same time and the screen cuts to black with the white text still there.
