Children shoot three short films with finesse

Children shoot three short films with finesse

Young talent

While the grown ups are completely oblivious to issues like equality and rights of children, young inmates of Deenabandhu organisation have made three short films in coordination with Media Project.

The show of the films was held on June 19 at Madhyamotsava - 2012, as part of the cultural exchange programme. Honorary secretary of Deenabandhu G S Jayadev said the film show was a follow-up from last year, in coordination with One People International Media, where children from Sweden, England, Holland, including those at Deenabandhu had made films. Sharing this at the press meet, Jayadev said this year around, children had taken up rather serious subjects and presented them with a lot of finesse and originality.

One of the issues children have taken up includes environmental pollution, and according to their film, humans will share a good bond with nature only if it is based on respect. 

The objective of this project is to create awareness about things and issues around us like child labour, untouchability and other sensitive issues, through films. 

Trainer from Media Project Natesh Ullal said films by children from Sweden, England and Pondicherry would be shown in India while films made by Indian children would be shown in those countries too. 

All aspects of the five-minute film, which was done by a team of 17 children, such as shooting, editing, direction and music have been handled by them. Children who participated in film making -- Megha, Chandan, Naveen, Vinutha, Shamala, Hemavathi, Shama, Girish, Manjunath, Vishwanath, Padmanabh and others shared their experiences on the occasion.
