Today has been such a lovely day, even in the middle of the winter tanning is an option (not that I had time)! The plan was to: do a reshoot of Marcel Deiss on microfinancing – check; walk around town film people “in action” and finally be interviewed at PanAfrican radio-station but we never got time for that. Here’s why. During the early hours of awake I was filming Marcel while Brighton attended a meeting to plan for an upcoming conference UNICEF is holding. Patrick Slavin, the head of commission in Zambia, got acquainted with our work. He wanted to meet us to further talk about the documentary and the crowdfunding-company aleepa.com launching in September i.e the radio-station had to wait.
We met Patrick and spoke about my background, the documentary and intertwining the gap crowdfunding should fill with the goals of the agents of youth foundation. All in all, even though I felt intimidated by coming unprepared and in shorts we managed to make an impression for he offered his help in terms on marketing both the documentary and the platform. A huge deal and we’re really thankful for his efforts in our bilateral goals in creating the future!
Also, we met Priscilla and we’re doing an interview on Friday morning when Brighton has his exams, things are really on the move!
