Today we are completing the final edit of our project. I have spent most of my morning working in the Peace Center on the computer with the girls Dadon and Phunima. I have been helping them edit the narrative and we started the photo editing process. They picked up the editing program really quickly and we flew through it. Meanwhile, Chris was working with the boys to finalize the last few photos and create image credits.
After lunch, Lhapka and Chundak took turns editing the second half of the images while the girls got artistic and created title slides.
We were interrupted by a group of Norwegians who donated funds to build the Peace Center we were working in. The students suddenly became very shy around these new strangers and I realized then how far we have all come since the day we met (was that only 6 days ago?!). We are all now more than volunteers and students – we are friends.
By the end of the day, we only needed to create some transitions and layer in some ambient sounds. We are very tired from all of our hard work but also in a very good place to be ready for tomorrow night’s film festival!
