World AIDS Campaign: Participants for Youth Video Production Needed!
The World AIDS Campaign is producing a video about HIV and AIDS, human rights and young people as leaders. The concept for the video still needs to be decided. Since a video about young people should be made by young people themselves, WAC has created a blog (http://wacyouthvideo.wordpress.com) in which young people can:
- Brainstorm and decide the visual style and messages of the WAC video
and the best channels for distributing it
- Post their own short videos (made with cell phones) proposing concepts
for the WAC video
- Learn the basics of video making by discussing the cell phone videos
that everyone posts, and
- Agree upon the final concept for the WAC video.

I may do this one over as it looks jumbley to me.
