Climate Smart Agriculture
I facilitated several Participatory Video workshops for CSA farmers in Dowa district, Malawi. The farmers learned how to use HD cameras, sound equipment and editing techniques through engaging games and exercises. I enabled them to tell their stories in short films.
Nambuma wheel is one of the warm up games.
The groups worked in teams and discussed ideas for stories passionately.
“Mistakes are Great!” is the mantra of PV. By watching back shaky footage
the farmers learned quickly how to handle the equipment.
The whole group edited the film and was amazed how different sequences put together
can create a working structure for a film. Everybody was proud of the final result.
