On every Actuality Media program we take a morning or afternoon aside from the main project to put the crew together, filming on a set for the first time. It’s a great time to field questions that would otherwise interrupt the main project, and always a fun time.
The TECHO crew got their practice day early to film the Colecta event. There was not early event that need be filmed for the FCT crew, so we paid a visit to the very friendly, oft-shopped at jewelry store down the street.
Unfortunately after shooting was done, our subject let it be known he didn’t really want to be on the internet. The shoot was really an exercise, and the important part was getting through it together. However, the Editor was able to put together a very fine cut and after a private screening with our subject he gave the okay to put the video online. So without further adieu…
Goodbyes are sometimes hard, and yet, necessary. Tampa is home to many people and places that are important to me but I could not be more excited to embark on this adventure. Working with TECHO in Cuenca will serve as a great opportunity to not only shed light on an organization that helps shelter the people of its country, but also promotes youth volunteerism, an underutilized service in Latin American countries. It is this volunteerism that serves as the foundation for which TECHO provides a roof for its country.
