MOSES OUMA: “Work on this set ran between the 31st of May and the 20th of June 2011. In the mornings, I mounted the Red One Camera. In the evenings, I packed it up after the shoot. I worked with the Director of Photography, took care of the camera lenses and ND filters, and also ensured that the camera battery was fully charged for the day’s shoot.
I learnt how to handle the Red One Camera. I also learnt the intricacies of the various departments of a film set, as well as how to work with the dolly and boom. I discovered that my area of interest is camera work and that in the future, I would like to work more as the Director of Photography. The experience was great; I only hope we shall have many more opportunities like this to hone our skills.”
Berry Muga: “In the beginning, I was the assistant set designer. Three days later, I became the set designer when the head of my department undertook other duties.
I worked with the lighting and grips department. I ensured that the cast had the required props on set. I learnt the importance of teamwork in any production. I also got the opportunity to be an extra in the film.
Filmmaking is fun, but it is also hard work. Sometimes we worked until 2am. Nonetheless, I remain undeterred in my quest to work in the film industry. I look forward to a long fulfilling career as an art designer, actor, director and script writer.”
