Film/video project – SCI peacework
Description: You've always wanted to learn how to produce, shoot and edit a movie? You are interested in social and ecological topics? Then this is the right camp for you. Help shooting a film about SCI's peace and volunteering work. Together with other volunteers you will learn about the work and the history of SCI and about the professional craft of film making. The film will be about workcamps, working and living together, having fun and making friends with new people from all over the world. The film is intended to show that voluntary work and the support of social or ecological projects are important and contribute to the stabilisation of peace.
Type of Work: You will receive a professional introduction to the art of filming (with camera and mobilephone). In this movie project you have the possibility to contribute your own ideas, shoot by yourself, cut the filmed material and create your own movie out of it. You will visit a workcamp in Cologne, do interviews with other participants, visit the SCI office in Bonn and interview SCI members, employees and activists. If you have a mobile phone with video function, please bring it with you. The project is supported by the European Solidarity Corps and you will receive a subsidy for your travel expenses.
