The first two days of workshops had been incredibly intense and hectic for all five members of the team (Alison, Olga, Gift, Chris and I) but I was trying not to get too overwhelmed by just being in Africa (everyone else on the team are quite seasoned travellers) and trying to get all of the workshop plan organised alongside juggling lots of kit. We're using smartphones, iPads, camcorders and a professional camera.
We'd run a whole selection of exercises (As some of the other posts have described) to help familiarise people with the kit, aspects of film grammar, to bond as a group, build a rapport with us, and most importantly to begin to think about what makes what they do as teachers in Malawi, special and worthy of sharing.
There's so much to say about these three days but I think for now I'll just post some pics and head to bed. Filming early at the first school.
