SHARJAH: Sharjah Media City (Shams), an innovative free zone hub for specialised facilities in creative and media industries, has concluded a digital filmmaking training course, held in collaboration with Sharjah Children, an entity governed by the Rubu’ Qarn Foundation for Creating Future Leaders and Innovators, as part of its programme “Journalists of the Future.”

The 30-hour training course, designed for children aged nine to twelve years, was conducted by World Education Television, WeTel, an educational news, documentary films, and interactive learning television channel. The week-and-a-half long course was conducted during a special event at the Child Art Centre in Mughaidir Suburb from July 15 to 24. During the workshop, students developed high-definition video production techniques for digital short filmmaking.

The course taught budding filmmakers how to develop and understand film concept, script and narration writing for digital film, as well as camera handling, non-linear video editing, sound mixing and lighting techniques, among other useful tools. At the conclusion of the course, students were required to complete an individual digital short film as the final project.

Commenting on the workshop, Dr Khaled al Midfa, Chairman of Shams, said, “We are always looking forward to nurturing and fostering young art talents and helping them develop their skills by availing to them rich, carefully structured, and training output that they can carry with them for the rest of their lives. We believe that optimal investment in these talents and creative minds from an early age will bring greater advantage, as they are faster to understand the media concepts we are trying to inculcate in them.”

Aysha Ali Al Kaabi, Acting Director of Sharjah Children, stressed the importance of nurturing and developing the skills of talented children and inculcating love for the media industry from an early age, so as to capitalise on their creativity and serve their community and nation.

“Our collaboration with Shams in conducting the recent training course and other initiatives and activities aligns with Sharjah Children’s mission of preparing a responsible, creative, knowledgeable and skilled generation,” she added.
