Last week, Burime hosted a creative camp. So of course I was even more excited when I learned that we would be making a film!
We had almost 30 kids who were separated into 4 teams.
In the morning, we had a time of worship and games before a craft. The theme for crafts this week was superheros. We had villains (or baddies as learned they are called in England) & heros.
They made their own monsters.
And capes & masks!
At the end of each day, the kids split into 3 groups and we spent about a half hour. Each group had a part of David’s life to make into a movie. David is chosen, David & Goliath and David becomes King.
They came up with their own scripts and practiced hard all week. Then on Friday, we extended camp half an hour to make sure we had enough time to film. We still went an extra hour and a half on top of that!
It was hard because the kids had no idea how a film is put together and of course they were too excited to listen. Plus I realized I have never had to explain any film stuff in Albanian so there was lots of vocabulary I have yet to learn on that topic! So communicating was hard.
But we did it! The kids pulled through and we made it! Here is the life of David as acted by the kids at Burime. Check it out below (sorry it’s only available in Albanian!)
