There are many barriers to entry for Christians into media.
PAK7 invests in Pakistani Christian filmmakers and media professionals–through initiatives like the PAK7 media summer school and internship, as well as the provision of short term training courses and loan equipment. We do this so that we can establish a strong and healthy pool of Christian media professionals that PAK7 and other ministries can use, and who can contribute to the wider media industry.
Distinctively, PAK7 aims to help Christians get into the media by helping them establish their own businesses. We believe that by giving training, access to equipment and by creating an internal market for video production, that we can kick start the Christian media production industry.
PAK7 holds an annual 10-week residential Media School in the mountain town of Murree. Christian young adults learn media skills hands-on. They take on a variety of tasks and challenges from short films to children’s programs. In an atmosphere of discipleship with daily devotions, the students strengthen, rediscover or come to understand their faith in Jesus. That faith is then practically worked out in their media education as they learn to make programs that carry a message about faith and life.
PAK7 provides extensive media training for young people. But once they graduate from our courses or internship how will they use their new found skills?
For this reason, PAK7 provides access to a range of camera, audio and editing equipment that graduates can rent for production activities. If they are delivering a project for a client they can put the charges onto them, but if they are working on their own project we offer it at a discounted rate.
When the young person has paid rental costs equal to the cost of the equipment, we give the equipment to them! This is to help them to establish their own businesses.
We have a passion for equipping local believers, so in addition to training we offer interns support with setting up their own businesses, and make equipment and facilities available to them. We hope by doing this that we will foster a healthy community of Christian producers who can be successful in the marketplace, and who PAK7 will be able to work with in the future.
