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.
Stepping Stone week 3 was a fully packed week for the participants.
Monday the participants had a follow up edit workshop with training facilitator Maghide Fife from City Varsity, teaching them about basic sound mixing and colour correction which they applied working on their biographical film assignment.

UCT Television Studio and Stepping Stone are presenting a unique non-fiction filmmaking course during the November/December year-end break. We are looking for individuals who are experienced in all areas of production to “mentor” the trainees throughout the process. Your role will be primarily assisting and aiding the flow of pre-production, production, post-production as the trainees will be receiving extensive training in the form of workshops throughout the duration of the course.
