Mobile Device Video Documentary Training in Nepal

The following is an example created by Tearfund staff and local community members during training conducted in May 2016 in the Makwanpur District of Nepal. Participants in the program wrote a synopsis and created a storyboard before going on location. The video was shot with a Samsung S7 using a Rode VideoMic Me. Editing was done on an iPad using Pinnacle Pro app and uploaded to YouTube.

Gary Wornell provides a comprehensive training package including hardware and software solutions tailored to challenging environments with unreliable electricity supplies. High quality documentaries support relief and development initiatives that bring value to INGO's and their partner organisations in Nepal by celebrating their successes and provide the means for communities to learn from each other by sharing the information through social media and partner publishing networks.

Gary Wornell is a visual consultant working with TearFund training staff and beneficiaries to make documentaries using mobile phones. This short film tells how this training is carried out and the benefits of sharing development success stories though social media.
