Introducing the Campaign to Disarm Domestic Violence

02 Jul

It has been a while since my last update and I’ll be filling in the blanks soon. In the meantime, please take a look at this video showcasing the bicycle rally and SAP-Nepal’s campaign launch to “Disarm Domestic Violence.”

This is my first experience shooting and editing video. I plan to do a lot more for this issue in the near future, including profiles, so I would appreciate any feedback that you might have. How can I use video to highlight the connection between domestic violence and gun control in Nepal? What would be useful to you in learning about this issue? What do you think would be helpful to policy makers?

I would love to hear your thoughts on using new media in advocacy.

    This ia a really impressive video, Isha! I would never be able to tell that it’s your first experience making video if I hadn’t been at training with you. It’s a really powerful and engaging video.
