It was great and nervous about the results if we would be selected or not. Great thing we got selected.
We taught Story building and telling, script writing, characterization, Shooting, editing, color grading and sound, acting, marketing and branding and mental health.
I learned a lot – the spirit of teamwork, new ideas for filmmaking and stories, new directions and perspective of films and networked with new people.

It was not that hard since I had expertise on how film making works.
The students were thrilled, being from a country with no film schools. It was a great opportunity for all of us. They were so happy and hoped for more of such classes. The students were so happy that finally they could learn how to make films, and they put in their whole self during the making of the films hoping for the best. They are hoping for more workshops to reach out to more female filmmakers and for a better film industry in Malawi. They now have a voice through the lens. Some asked if the workshops would be longer and often.
