Hemophilia camps have always brought out the best in our Hemophilia boys. You will see young participants who are shy, timid and quiet when they came in the first day, and transforms into talkative bunch, willing to share ideas and expresses creativity freely. Like a butterfly coming out of a cocoon.
With expressing creativity as one of the pillars of this camp, there was a special session during the camp with a very interesting topic, ‘Producing Creative Videos in Daily Life with Mobile Phone’ with a guest speaker, Mr Ahmad Hafidzuddin bin Abdul Aziz. The guest speaker is the Head of Media Support Unit from Multimedia University and also the founder of OPXO, a creative photography, videography & new media enthusiast company.
The half-day session started with a theory lesson, on fundamentals of video producing. Mr. Ahmad Hafidzuddin emphasized on ‘5Ws and 1H’, being What, Why, Where, When, Why and How, and the boys were taught on how to develop a story board. Each participant was given a story board sheet and were tasked to create an individual story board. You’d be surprised to find that one of the most interesting story boards developed were actually by one of the youngest participants. The participants were also exposed to mobile videography tools and equipment, aside from video capturing and videography skills by Mr. Ahmad Hafidzuddin.
Each team were then tasked to create a creative video on three different topics, 1. Safe Exercises for Hemophiliacs. 2. Learning Self-Infusion. 3. WFH2020 World Congress Promo Video. Although the time given to complete the task was short, the participants managed to create the videos well and Mr Ahmad Hafidzuddin was impressed with the creativity and vison of the participants.
Mr Ahmad Hafidzuddin hopes the skills learned will be used well by the participants and perhaps they can continue to create creative videos for Hemophilia Society of Malaysia.
The Hemophilia Society of Malaysia thanks Mr Ahmad Hafidzuddin for his generous contribution in organizing this session and we hope to have you again in our future camps.
