Subject: pls forward - swapathgami filmmaking workshop
Hope you all are doing well!
I am writing to let you know that the sixth annual Swapathgami Filmmaking Workshop will be held from January 28- February 7, 2011, here in Udaipur, Rajasthan. Our intention is to support community media and diverse expressions.
As in years past, we will jump into filmmaking and organic living! We will spend our time: making a film with a team, discussing various kinds of films, participating in learning exchanges, bettering our interviewing techniques, making a sound story and an image story, and much more! A few different independent / swapathgami filmmakers will be coming to support our learning process. If you want to learn more about the workshop, check out images and happenings of past years’ workshops at www.swaraj.org/shikshantar/walkoutsnetwork.htm . also have a look on youtube (search for swapathgami)
No prior filmmaking experience is necessary, nor are any qualifications or degrees. We are looking for dynamic, creative, sincere people to be a part of this workshop. We only have room for 25 people this year, so please get in touch as soon as possible, if you're interested.
We will be serving delicious vegetarian and zero oil food and focusing on local grains (bring your favorite recipes as well). We are asking that people cover their own travel to-from Udaipur, and contribute Rs.1500 for food, accommodation and materials. As with all Swapathgami events, people are invited to give what they can; scholarships are available to those who need them. And if you can, your additional contributions help to support other peoples’ participation. We are proud to say that the Swapathgami Network does not take any funding, but rather is financed by its own members.
Please feel free to forward the invitation to others. Please let me <firstname.lastname@example.org> know, as soon as possible, if you are interested in coming so that we can reserve your seat.
Best wishes and love,
Manish, Ruchir, Gungun, Vishal, Gyan, Sanjay
