What was the workshop?
In July and August 2015 Voices of the Children hosted a documentary film making workshop for Syrian teens in Za'atari Refugee Camp, Jordan.
We paired teens in small groups and taught them the fundamentals of documentary film making.
what was the outcome?
The final product is 9 independent documentary shorts written, filmed, and directed by the teens involved on a subject of their choosing.
The films will be presented both as independent documentary shorts as well as a single film showing the "Series" of the kids' stories.
Who else was INVOLVED with the workshop?
We partnered with Save the Children who provided logistical support in Za'atari.
Also, we partnered with McNally Smith College of Music to have undergraduate music composition students write an original score for each film.
