There is great excitement in the PAK7 family! Phase 2 of our first major project, Video Star, is due to begin on Friday 22nd March :-)
One of the big challenges for PAK7 is finding enough talent to be able to make the quality programs we want, and to make them in the quantity we need to consider launching a channel in the future. That’s where Video Star comes in . . . a talent show designed to help identify and train young Christian filmmakers.
Since the end of last year, young people from all over Pakistan have been working on and submitting short film entries. The images you can see above are taken from their videos and there are some beautiful shots here - there are also good stories being told. It is looking really positive for the future.
We now have chosen 24 of the best applicants to take part in a series of tasks to help us narrow the field to the 12 who will join the PAK7 Video School this summer. They will have to work in teams to write storyboards, produce a music video, and make a short film among other things. The whole thing is going to be made into a reality-TV show which we hope to have shown on national TV in Pakistan later in the year.
Please pray for:
