So my final project is basically something that I have been working on for the past year or so. It is basically a collaboration of videos which of I would like to say 90% is shot and edited by myself. I have slowly began to assemble them together on my youtube channel (http://www.youtube.com/user/jahjah1987 ). I am very much into my community as whole being Guyanese and Hindu. My channel is in attempt to capture, preserve, educate, and promote my culture. I have teamed up with people from within my community on some of the videos. Currently one program is being aired on a local television station on Time Warner Cable TV ever week. About a month ago, I teamed up with another group of people from Guyana to create sister program if you will to a 15 years and still counting program being running on Guyana national television. There are hopes to one day get it up on television in NY, but as for now it is YouTube based and airs every two weeks in Guyana. Aside from these two programs, I have a few independent projects.
I’m working on, these are basically either projects done for school or thing I found a need for doing. (http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL244B940EF816E992).
This is a link to the program for Guyana. I am solely responsible for filming and editing. The talents are responsible for the songs and messages.
This is a link to the New York program. I basically stared this program from scratch. In this program, I began to teach the youths how to use cameras and editing. I now only do about 50% of the work. The youths do most of it and I just assist.
Another thing that I do is as I meet new youths, is that I encourage them to get involved in their culture. We set up a date and we have a performance and I edit and upload it to YouTube for the world to see. http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL91F054B0D6119CA4
I am constantly uploading new videos, and slowly the view counter is increasing.
