Stepping Stone Single-Camera 2019: Week Four

Participants have been given briefs to their client projects and began shooting filming on Monday.

One group is shooting a promotional video for Christine Mburu, a UCT post-grad student in The Departments of Computer Sciences’ ICT4D project. Christine developed an app called Preemie Mom Care, which is aimed at assisting mothers who have had premature infants. The app allows mothers who cannot attend to their children every day, to check on their baby’s vitals and receive daily updates from the neonatal unit’s nurses and doctors attending to their infants. The app also provides a platform for mothers to interact with and support each other. The group is mentored by Cian Small.
