OneMinutesJr workshop in Montenegro - Day 5
by Chris Schuepp
PODGORICA, Montenegro - September 21, 2010 - The final day of the OneMinutesJr workshop in Podgorica has come and we are working with the participants on the last touches for their films - titles, music and subtitles where needed.
It is always interesting to see how a workshop group changes over the course of five days, but this time is very obvious and extremely positive. The little barriers that were there are the beginning have completely disappeared. Whether or not the children have any disabilities, it simply doesn't matter. Helping and giving others a hand comes naturally and nobody is left out at all.
The films have all turned out very well and since this is the first time we see all of them together back-to-back on the big screen, you can see, hear and feel how proud the children are of themselves.
Branka Kovacevic, UNICEF Programme Specialist, is part of the audience today and is fascinated by the quality and the clarity of the films: "These OneMinutesJr videos can say more than hours and hours of discussions. We will make sure that people in Montegro will hear your messages."
Next week already, some of the children from this workshop will appear on billboards throughout the Montenegrin capital. The "Making of the OneMinutesJr" will be shown on TV in Montenegro and the films will be used for advocacy by UNICEF in Montenegro.
