An Interview with Baba Ali at the GPU2010 || @ummahfilms

Posted on

It’s finally ready… and it only took me several months to get round to editing it!

The girls from Sisters Film Club met up with Baba Ali at the GPU2010 for a short chat about his work on Half Our Deen, Ummah Films (including the response to their latest film release ‘Doctor Director‘), and the importance of the Muslim community’s relationship with the media.

I originally edited the footage to produce a video, but some problems with the B-roll made me think a podcast release would be the better way to go. I think it still works – thus illustrating the importance of audio quality over video when filming interviews. :)

Student Film-Maker Mentorship Opportunity

Posted on

Thanks to sis Yasmeen of Campusalam for the ‘heads up’ on the following initiative:

Three Faiths Forum is recruiting London-based students from Muslim, Christian and Jewish backgrounds for our DocuMentors programme.

DocuMentors provides students with an interest in film the opportunity be mentored by a professional film-maker and make vital contacts for future careers. Participants will gain access to high quality equipment and training as they work on their own film.

Last year participants worked with some of the biggest names in comedy – including David Mitchell, Omid Djalili and David Baddiel – in their film, “The Laugh Judgment”, about the relationship between faith and comedy.

We would be very grateful if you could circulate the information about the programme to your contacts, or recommend anyone you think we should approach.

Update: I just noticed that the deadline for application to the programme was 15th Nov 2010 – I only received the email yesterday, so I assumed that there was still time to enter! I recommend contacting the group anyway – even if it’s simply to register interest for future mentorships.
