PFP is very pleased to announce that Basis, a research consultancy based in London (basisresearch.co.uk), has given us 50 video cameras. Neil Lovell, the Brand Director of Basis, organised the donation for the purpose of passing these on to the people that we train in filmmaking in various parts of Africa and Asia.
Sam Liebmann, who was UK Facilitator for the team that recently returned from Sierra Leone, received the cameras from Neil. The cameras, Sony DCR-HC51 Handycams, are ideal for enabling young filmmakers to learn and perfect their craft and will help us as we plan to run more training in the next few years.
The training in Sierra Leone was very successful and Future View Movie Group have almost finished their first film. We are waiting for the release of the final edit and look forward to updating you on the project.
