Congratulations to School of Media Studies Professor Karen Young, who successfully completed her Leave for Change mandate with the Federation of Community Forestry Users Nepal as a Documentary Video Advisor.
Karen edited a 7-minute promotional video for the FECOFUN website from footage that was already recorded. The purpose of the video is to share FECOFUN’s activities with the public. She also edited a second 4-minute video for the website that featured interviews with politicians, as it was decided to keep the political video separate from the primary promotional video in case the political climate changes. She edited a 30-40 minute archival video for the FECOFUN office and to be distributed to FECOFUN partners, with the purpose of archiving FECOFUN’s activities and issues. These three videos were edited in close collaboration with Karen’s counterpart and she took into consideration the feedback of the other FECOFUN colleagues.
Karen also gave a workshop to CECI Nepal, its volunteers and its partners that she called ‘Video Production 101: How to create interesting stories for the video medium’. The workshop covered topics such as how to craft a good story, what to think about before and during filming, and how to put it all together (including copyright concerns).
Finally, Karen made recommendations about editing software to FECOFUN.
According to Karen the experience was rewarding both professionally and personally.
“The mandate was clear and I was given the freedom to work somewhat independently to meet the project objectives, with support when required. FECOFUN was pleased with the result.”
“100% even when it was tough. It was an incredible experience, it gives you perspective."
