■Video workshop, Report from Jordan Vol.5 (2008/03/21)

Last day

We finally finished recording narration for the video. Six of participants did narration and other ones did recording, sound operation, PC operation, and director. But some of them started chatting and made noises because they couldn’t have any role. This caused the recording team to repeat the same takes. Silence should be required during recording narration.

Someone were playing beside during recording.
They seemed to be concentrated gradually.

Film showing day

We held a film showing ceremony to invite more than 150 guests from Japan Embassy, Iraq Embassy, Jordanian Government and TV company as well as community people. Just after showing the film, we had a big applause and we also found someone had tears on the face. Our video team of course had greeting from the stage with confidence. .

They put pictures on the wall for decoration.
A lot of people came to see us.
Even our friendly driver became a cameraman today.
All team members received certification.

Ban who is in charged of sound is very active girl. Not only sound but also she willingly takes care of a camera and other equipments. She became a reporter in the workshop. She and her family came to Jordan in 2000. She left her brother and sister in Iraqi. Her father had a heart problem and needed operation. But it was very expensived to go to hospital. She still lives in Jordan without some of family.
We took photo of all members and finished the video workshop.
