MTV mentors young people on film production for HIV and AIDS

30 young people benefit from MTV's film production project

Last week during the International Women's Summit in Nairobi, MTV's Staying Alive, together with MTV base, the YWCA, The David and Lucille Packard Foundation, UNAIDS, UNFPA and the MAC AIDS Fund, gave 30 young people the opportunity to script, shoot and edit a short film on HIV and AIDS in two days.

The 30 young people split into 6 teams were given a crash course in film production, a theme for their move and then 48hours to produce it. The only help they had was a trained professional as their mentor - one per team to assist only when necessary, otherwise these young people did it all.

The 6 films were then judged on skill in their film production,delivery of the message and its appeal to a global youth audience.The films were judged by acclaimed video director, Bryan Barber ( who directed John Legend's Save Room, Christina Aquilera's Ain't No Other Man, Destiny's Child's Girl and the motion picture IdleWild), Sophie Dilimitis, HIV and AIDS Coordinator for the YWCA and Umboone Umbine, YWCA youth member.

A long form programme around the 48Fest Kenya film will be aired globally on 1st December 2007 (email info@staying-alive.org to get a copy of the programme or films)
