Training finishes 2nd week

The training has successfully finished its second week – with students editing their first interviews and group conversations. This second week has been about sound and story.  The first week we  introduced the camera, composition and coverage and students did a series of exercises and a assignment in which they documented a craft or small manufacturing process.  The students were asked to do an evaluation of the training up to this point.  Here are a few of the responses:

“Documentary filmmaking is my medium of choice for communicating the realities in Afghanistan.  This training is giving me the knowledge I need to pursue this work.”
