Filmmaking Practical Training

The participants in ​the project "Independent Media: Raising Youth Voices" which is currently being implemented by Shoruq organization ​have completed filming two short films. The participants then were divided into two filming groups, each group included 12 participants aged between 16 and 22. The training started theoretical sessions in which the participants were introduced to the personal experience of the director ​supervising the training, the basics of filmmaking, and the cinematographic team. Afterwards, a group of the director’s own films have been displayed, presented, then the script was revised and modified and the film’s storyboard has been drawn.


In the second stage of the training, the girls were divided and each girl was given a role to hold during the filming of the short movie. Then a session was held to check the equipment, the locations, and the characters that will be having a role play. In the last days of the training, the location was provided with the necessary decorations, the girls were ready and prepared, and the filming started.
