Everyone has their own reason for taking part in the Make A Video Contest. I hoped to learn something that has nothing to do with the school curriculum. But more importantly, I wanted to tell a story. The story is about happiness. Imagine an adult forcing a kid to take part in an extracurricular activity that he dislikes. I am sure he’ll be very unhappy.
My video, The Joy of Eating, tells a happy story where children can do things they like. I believe this will bring them great joy. Unfortunately, not all children have such opportunities, so I wanted my video to inspire them to try things that interest them.
My video is about my passion – eating. While making my video, I practically ate non-stop. I ate sweets, biscuits and bread. Also, during the production of the video, I prepared my own food, and this made the process more interesting and engaging.
I learned a lot during the workshop which was held before we started filming. For example, different angles can help convey different ideas. Also, the camp’s instructor was very nice, and I hope to make another video soon. All in all, it was a wonderful experience.
