Documenting our journey as VOF 2010

Posted November 4, 2010 from Colombia

Hi to everyone....

this morning while I was taking a bath, I thought a lot about all of you....How would be your lifes? how each of us would manage our days, our lives, our moments? how would be for us to be correspondents of the future? and how we might be dealing with this in our own spirits? which would be our fears, our challenges.....

And I thought it would be nice to document this as part of our challenges...I would love to do it...

I am sending you a link to a small video of me, my office, where i am right now.....it could be a good way to knowing each other....and later we can make a documentary work with our own stories...

We can video of course what we want to share here in our journal....and if it is ok we can make a whole documentary of this five months...we can build this idea all together...

what do you think? let´s do it...

We can make it!!

This is brilliant idea and i am gonna contribute some clips though i am not that keen with this but am sure you gonna help me with that, and of course i will share first where i live and some parts of the state i am and show you that Somalia isn't the way the media talks but there are many stable and beautiful places.

Peace and love, Maria

Thanks Martha for leading this wonderful addition to the journey. I was just reviewing old journals from a little over 2 yrs ago and its great to reflect on where I was when I penned those words. I think it's great to capture this experience, even if just to look back years from now and see how we went through the process. I will join you in posting atleast one video within the next 5months :-)

Hugz!!!

At the moment I am away from Maldives- I wonder how I could get some vedio clips. Lets see what I can do... there must be a way :-) if there is a will.

I'll think about how I can contribute. I want to share Maldivies through my eyes not the commercial nor the political.

Talk to you later. :-) cheers Martha

Hi Amei, where are you? maybe someone with a cellular phone will allow you to do it....if you do not have a way to upload it you can send the video to me by mail and I could upload it for you.

I wish I could know your country once. My dream is to be a great documentary photographer to show countries tru the eyes of the people.....

Con afecto

Hi there,

Has anyone used Qik before? It is a video-sharing mobile phone technology available for 140 models of phones. Go to http://qik.com/info/overview. I haven't used it before, but it would be great if we could put together some options for women who don't have access to flip phones or video cameras to record their experience. I am thinking the easiest way for folks to do this, is with a mobile phone or with a webcam.

Cheers,

R
