We want to thank you for the contribution made towards our film project. Prior to COVID-19, we have been able to train 25 young people on basic camera, light, and editing. we here about to start shooting documentaries but because of COVID 19, we had to cease some of our operations. currently, we are doing documentaries on the current situation Sierra Leoneans during COVID 19 and after all, we will be able to edit and use it's as a case study. we are grateful for your support and hope you will continue helping us. Once the current world pandemic is over, we believe more young people will be able to join the project and also see how best we can fundraise to get more Cameras to get young people going out to shot documentaries and give us better stories.
Thank you very much for your support of our project. we are very grateful for all that you have been able to do for us. The film project is going well. with the new coordinator, Partick Sesay appointed. we have now formed a team of 10 young people that are engaged in full-time training. The organization has been able to provide 10 new desktops, 4 cameras and software packages that are used for training. The students work on a daily basis and go out to video, take pictures of AYPAD Activities and come back to the studio to learn to edit. These students will be thought for 6 months and then be provided with a certificate of training completion . in Jan 2020 we will bring more updates on how the project is moving on
Thank you very much for your support to our project so far we have been able to receive 2 cannon Cameras from organization funds that will be sued to training young people. Also, we have been able to secure two computers that will be used for editing and teaching young people on editing. so far we have been able to also identify 10 young people both male and female that will commence the training in Sierra Leone.
we have been committed and tried our best possible way to make the project a success. we hope you will give a contribution to this project. we anticipate kicking Starting in Sierra Leone 10 October 2019 with effective training and pictures
On behalf of Africa Youth for peace and development, we want to thank you for your support for our film Project for Street Children. We were able to do many things that are geared towards realizing the goal of the project below you will see
the various activities
The organization through fundraising activities was able to get 2 cameras cannon legria that was donated by supporters of the organization. Mr. Emmanuel Tucker a Sierra Leonean based in London United Kingdom. With these cameras, we have been able to hold training 2 times a week for children that have an interest. Some of the first selected children have been relocated for one reason or the other cannot be found. Most have them have moved to other parts of the city and this makes it difficult for them to be part of the program. A total of 25 Children have been trained since the start of the project. Most of them can now understand the different areas of filming (Light, camera, sound, background setting, makeup, and editing) we believe that we should give participants full details of all areas but taking it by stages. Currently, most of the children are doing Light and Camera and a better understating these topics. We anticipate that in the next 2-3 months they will be able to move on to the next 2 stages of the projects which are background setup and makeup.
Our next step
We hope to provide more cameras and other filming equipment’s as for now we have 2 cameras and one Laptop and very few editing software. We hope we are able to raise funds here to get additional equipment’s
Provide feeding opportunities for participants as most of them cannot provide for themselves and they tend to skip class because of no food.
Increase the number of participants to 50 and also get the old participants to advance to new activities and get new participants to be trained by old participants.
uch for your support and interest in our Film Project.
