What does it take to become a filmmaker at Kibera Film School?
Below some trainees sum up their experiences!
It was a very tense day I wasn’t sure of what I was going to do but deep down my heart I knew it was the beginning of a new experience in my life.
Meeting new friends in a very strange environment, people with diverse attitudes…that was a challenge.
My biggest challenge was how to connect the ‘Mac minis’ I feared I may connect them wrongly and be compelled to pay. ‘these equipment’s are expensive’
I have come to realize that being a filmmaker is all about organizing your self. This has always been a challenge.
My biggest challenge has always been putting my film ideas on paper, thanks to Kibera Film School now I know what to write and how to structure it.
Being a filmmaker is wow hectic! You have to be super organized and that you must always have a small writing pad to put all your thoughts. As a young mother this is a huge task but am up for the challenge.
Before joining Kibera Film School I was what you call ‘a green horn’ now I am confident enough to say what film is. My biggest challenge was when our production tutor asked us to name, names of famous film directors…. sadly I knew none!
Editing’ this was a challenge and half…. how to make those tiny beautiful cuts, woven creatively together to make an award winning film.
How do you tell a 2-minute story of ‘My World’! Seriously! This I had a huge argument. However everything is possible at Kibera Film School. This school is unique, hands-on.
