In the morning we had one-on-one sessions with the AIR team. These were insightful disussions, during which groups discussed and refined their research questions, and identified data needs and gaps. We also discussed processes regarding impact evaluations.
FilmAid Kenya presented for part of the afternoon. Samuel Odhiambo Otieno from FilmAid gave the teams guidance on shooting and editing short videos using Kinemaster and Open Camera Apps with smartphones and later provided feedback. The video coaching provided useful tips – relevant and easy to apply. We especially appreciated all the practical tips, which we were able to put to immediate use, as we then had the opportunity to apply these new techniques (filming, taking shots and editing).
It was wonderful to be able to see immediate results, and groups came up with brief and interesting videos. Overall, the coaching provided us with sequential steps and tricks for filming, editing and photography.
