It has been a while since I posted a newsletter on my blog. As expected this has been one of the busiest times at Media Village. However everyone at the Village is up for the challenge.

Just to refresh your mind. We are currently running a Video Production School. This school encompasses all the three stages of production (i.e.Pre Production to Production and Post Production). I am heading the Post Production Department for this school under the watchful eye of the head of all Productions, Adrian. We have about 23 students from all over the world just going through the intensities and intricacies of the Video and film world.
Last week the students finished their first project which is a three minute Soft News piece and currently they are working on their adverts (Public Service Announcements:PSA). I must say its always exciting to see the progression of each individual from knowing nothing into producing, shooting and eventually editing their own film. That gives me such great fulfillment.

I guess the biggest challenge for me would be to at least get all of them to be efficient Editors by the end of the school. Efficient enough to enter any Production House in the world and start editing. Well for me what̢۪s even more exciting is the fact that all this is coming out of Africa. Think about it with all the negativity associated with Africa its very refreshing to see something positive come out of this continent. The Tranformation Day of Prayer is one of them talk of Africa being a dark continent....Okay I am going off the tangent now.

We still have a couple of weeks left before the school ends and the big graduation ceremony aptly called the Cable Awards takes place. Cable Awards is when we have a little Oscar Wards ceremony were we get to celebrate the students' work for the last 3 months. So I am inviting you to join us on the 24th of September, 1930hrs at the Baxter Theater Main Road, Rondebosch. It is a black tie event so dress up or should I say dress to kill. If you are around Cape Town on that day please do contact in advance so that we can make the necessary arrangements. I will give out all my contact details at the end of this letter....

Otherwise thank you so much for your support and prayers. Please pray for me I am considering doing the Animation School coming up at the beginning of October. So I need finances to that regard. All the same do email me anytime and let me know how you keeping I would love to hear from you.....

God Bless and Keep it Tight 4REAL...................
