Purple Field Productions' response to COVID-19
Standing together in the face of the global pandemic
As the latest advice and news regarding COVID-19 continues to evolve quickly, PFP continues to closely monitor and respond to the situation and the impact on the people and communities we work alongside.
The pandemic has impacted on all aspects of PFP operations, but none more so than on our overseas programmes.
Nonetheless, in uncertain and challenging times PFP clearly has an important role to play, and our recent experiences in co-producing COVID-19 awareness music videos, have demonstrated that we do have the capability of operating even in the most trying of circumstances.
As an organisation we have supported our partners Future View Film Group (FVFG) in Sierra Leone and the Kasungu Film Collective (TKFC) in Malawi to produce heath awareness music videos in their local languages.
Additionally, members of TKFC have been undergoing PFP supported training, covering film scripting, production, sound recording, and editing, which has led to the production of a short documentary on the effect of COVID-19 on schoolgirls in Malawi.
