Our trainer is an award-winning documentary filmmaker with 13 years of experience in the developing world, whose films have been broadcast internationally on Channel 4, BBC, PBS, ITV, ABC, NBC, Al Jazeera, and CNN, among others.

You will discover what makes powerful and engaging video. You will learn practical information for shoots, taking into consideration budgets, time, security and access. We will show you how to choose and work with professional video producers and teams, and which style best suits your story.

You don’t need expensive equipment; just bring yourself and your drive to tell stories that make a difference.
