Partnership of Anak TV, Plan Intíl makes sure Visayas youth shine in media

Tacloban City (November 3) - Using the video cameras and inputs from Anak TV, twenty-eight of the most creative kids aged 10 to 16 from Catarman, Northern Samar; Sogod, Southern Leyte; Calbayog City, Samar; and Camotes Island, Cebu are scheduled to present an hour recital of their outputs at the DepEd Region 8 Training Center at 9:30 in the morning of November 3.

Mr. Totch D. dela Cruz of Plan International Inc. Visayas Support Centre informed that the 28 students converged for an Advanced Media Skills Training Program under the tutelage of Mags Hatol Cruz of Anak TV Inc.

The training covers the making of video public service announcements, and documentaries on the social issues affecting the lives of the Visayas children from the eyes and viewpoints of children themselves.

This training, Mr. dela Cruz said, is a follow up activity of the basic course last summer. The media training has fostered creativity, self-expression and teamwork among the kids, who grew from being clueless about media technology to being techno enthusiasts.

The workshop was part of Planís advocacy against violence and Anak TVís crusade for responsible viewership and media literacy.

The Anak TV and Plan International project took shape three years ago, when the proponents thought of designing a mentoring program in basic media literacy that would cover digital photography, camera work, video production, musical scoring and basic editing.

The idea was to level the playing field to enable the poorest of the poor, who may not reach college, to learn media basics.

The Advanced Media Skills Training Program at the DepEd Region 8 Training Center was for the kids who excelled in the basic workshop. (PIA 8)
