Halogen TV visits Kibera Film School

Halogen TV, a new American Television Network to be launched later this year, visited Kibera Film School yesterday.

They interviewed Mercy Murugi, for their series “Noble Exchange: Africa” on being a young female film maker in Kenya and Africa, on working with the youth in Kibera Film School and on producing Hot Sun Films / Hot Sun Foundation feature film, Togetherness Supreme. They talked about the challenges of filming in Kibera, the challenge / joys of having a film school in Kibera and the vision for the film school.

They also had a talk with the students on different cameras, and the importance of networking in the film industry. The students had a lot of questions to ask in regards to their work and about the film schools in the US.

And even let the students try out their HVX 200 camera.

The students spent time with the Managing Trustee of Hot Sun Foundation Nathan Collett dropped by the Film School and talked to them about the differences between NTSC and PAL.
