Godfrey Chogo, Kibera Film School trainee
My name is Godfrey Chogo. I am a trainee at Kibera Film School.my first video project was about MY WORLD. Making it wasn’t easy because I had to come up with a script - something, which I had never done.
It was challenging to come up with a script for a film of two minutes about My World, but thanks to the trainers of Kibera Film School, (all of whom are past graduates of Kibera Film School), I managed to come up with a script.
After that I had to make it into a short film. At this point I felt like leaving the school because I needed a crew, cast, and locations but I realized that I am the one to determine my life. Although it wasn’t easy I didn’t give up.
This gave me courage within myself and also taught me how important it is to work with others. The MyWorld video project made me know that I can do something as long as I have the interest and the passion for it. Understanding others and working with them made me realize that as a filmmaker I need others.
This has changed my life and I am grateful to Kibera Film School.
I am also grateful to all supporters on Global Giving.
Your support keeps the Kibera Film School open for me and youth like me.
