A helping hand for our youth

first_imgPastor Babongile Moto has dedicated her time and energy to helping youth in Port Elizabeth fulfil their potential and overcome some of the challenges they face. It is this selflessness that earned her a seat among our Play Your Part ambassadors.Pastor Babongile Moto, founder of the Changing Young Star’s World faith-based organisation, joins our group of Play Your Pat ambassadors. (Image: Babongile Moto, via Facebook)Play Your Part ReporterWith a strong passion for helping young people to grow on many levels, it is no surprise that Pastor Babongile Moto has been selected to join an already impressive line-up of Play Your Part ambassadors.Moto discovered her passion for helping people during her six-year stint as a member of the Bisho Community Church Youth Ministry, where she got the opportunity to help members of her church and community.While studying for her BCom degree in business management at the University of Fort Hare, Moto became the first female chairperson of the university’s Student Christian Organisation. During her time there, she pioneered a number of youth development programmes.In recognition of her achievements both academically and as part of the student organisation, Moto received a scholarship to study for a diploma in theology in the United Kingdom.On her return, armed with her degree and diploma as well as a wealth of knowledge and experience, Moto set in motion her plans to have a positive effect on the lives of even more people.Changing their worldWith the help of her colleagues from the Student Christian Organisation, she set up the Changing Young Star’s World organisation (CYSW).She says the aim of the organisation is to “holistically develop young people, especially those from disadvantaged backgrounds, starting with their spiritual wellbeing and permeating through to each gift, talent and acquired skill.“We believe that nothing is impossible, thus we seek to help young people in finding a way out of their current adverse situations to full progression in life.”CYSW has four programmes, each aimed at addressing different issues that Moto and her colleagues have identified as areas of concern.These programmes are:The Give a Child a Future Project, aimed at supporting learners to access better schools and tertiary education institutions.The Youth Mentorship Programme, which looks at developing the life skills of high school learners.The CYSW Community Development Project, which offers spiritual and social support to a number of communities in and around Kwamagxaki in Port Elizabeth.The Kingdom Advancement Network, which develops young people who show a passion for preaching, praise singing and counselling.Moto says that by focusing on these four areas she hopes that the organisation can make an ongoing difference in the lives of the youth with whom it works.Like all our ambassadors, Moto actively plays a part in making South Africa a better place for us all. She is a great example of how active citizenship can help us overcome the challenges we face as a country.Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

SANBio empowering female owned bio-businesses

first_imgSANBio empowering female owned bio-businessesThis year, International Women’s Day shared a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity under the campaign theme #PressforProgress. There is a strong call to #PressforProgress motivating and uniting friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.This has since seen organisations such as the Southern Africa Network for Biosciences (SANBio) have in place programmes that are gender inclusive. They look for ambitious female leaders in bioscience-based businesses want to grow their business through acceleration programmes, and gain regional exposure and access to international markets.SANBio is a shared biosciences research, development and innovation platform for working collaboratively, to address some of Southern Africa’s key biosciences issues in health, nutrition and health-related intervention areas such as agriculture and environment.With support from the BioFISA II programme, SANBio has implemented a second round of FemBioBiz Acceleration Programme, aimed at supporting women in biosciences. The Programme was created to develop leadership, technological and business skills in female-owned businesses in the SADC region.Although sub-Saharan Africa has not been famous for its status as a leader in female inclusion within the economic sector, African women are surprisingly beating the odds and defying the obstacles in the field of entrepreneurship in the region.Entrepreneurs characteristically have ambition, determination and a flair for original ideas. However, many lack the business expertise required to develop these into commercially viable ventures.“This programme creates a platform for peer learning and will empower women to lead in health and nutrition through science and technology”, says Zvikomborero Tangawamira, BioFISA II programme manager.For more information on deadlines, timelines, conditions of entry, and submission details, please visit the FemBioBiz Season 2 page.last_img read more

The Video Producer’s Secret Weapon: the Shot List

first_imgEvery professional video production relies on a shot list. Here’s why you should too.Cover image via Shutterstock.Years ago, when I first started directing, I remember being annoyed by assistant directors and producers who wanted to see a shot list. I thought, Isn’t what we’re going to shoot obvious from our storyboards? I was so wrong, because it isn’t obvious.Storyboards are visual guides that help everyone plan, in a general way, the work they’re responsible for. In prep, storyboards are very useful for designing expensive action and VFX sequences — the studio wants to see what they’re paying for, after all. And storyboards are useful during preliminary budgeting and scheduling. Storyboards can form the basis for a shot list, but they are not a substitute for one.In live-action production, you can rarely edit a set of storyboards together and tell a compelling — or even cohesive — story. As the director, you have a number of shots in mind that will bridge or expand on a single illustration. It’s these shots that you need to write down and share with your colleagues. Remember, film and video production is collaborative, and your team members are there to help you realize your vision. But they can’t do this if you don’t share it with them.Shot lists help you plan the day. Each shot takes a certain amount of time, and if you have thirty-five of them in your head, you better let the AD know so they can help organize and budget the time to pull everything off. Then the DP deserves a look because there might be something on the list that doesn’t quite fit the photographic plan. When you prioritize your shots, everyone understands what’s most important to you. As you may know, things can and do get crazy on a shoot. Unforeseen weather or equipment issues can derail your train of thought, so keeping a list will remind everyone what remains to be shot — or re-thought, given the remaining daylight.On a TV show, there isn’t enough prep time to draw storyboards. Shot lists become even more important because there are multiple directors in a season, and their shot lists give everyone a sense of their organizational skills and visual appetites.Finally, being the director means that someone has entrusted you with a tremendous amount of responsibility, both creative and financial. Thorough preparation is the hallmark of a successful director. A detailed shot list informs everyone that you have thought a scene through and that this list represents the minimum amount of coverage you require to cut the scene together creatively. Chances are, your knowledge of the coverage will expedite the process and, in the end, buy you extra time for additional shots that will make the day and the scene even better.Production images courtesy of the author.Do shot lists improve your productions?
