Our Imagine RIT exhibit is a pre-recorded video that explains Morpheyes and educates the audience about what we're producing currently. Morpheyes Studio is a full service video production company on the RIT/NTID campus. Our mission is to advance Deaf talent and culture through the stories we tell. As an independent studio, we aim to compete in the Hollywood independent film and television marketplace. Morpheyes is also a leadership learning platform shaped to train the first generation of Deaf above-the-line creative leaders capable of competing in Hollywood. We offer co-op and real-world work opportunities in a professional production environment to RIT/NTID students and recent graduates interested in becoming filmmakers, creators, and storytellers.
Currently, we are developing scripted and documentary film projects, television and YouTube series content and graphic novels. Deaf creators are behind all the projects we develop. In our exhibit, you will learn about some of the projects we are currently producing and developing. You see how we work individually (and currently, remotely) in order to collaborate together to add value to each of the projects that Morpheyes is producing today, including "Deaf and...", our first feature length documentary; "Solitary", our first feature length narrative film; and "Tea Time", our first scripted television series.
