Signing Animation is one of SignLight’s partners. A Deaf/HoH-majority animation studio based in California, their mission is to make representative Deaf/HoH animated stories, help other studios prepare to welcome Deaf/HoH talent, and prepare Deaf/HoH animation students for the job market.

We wish to thank the Ford Foundation for their generosity and support in making our vision of a Professional Skills Training Program a reality.
