Camp Caboulosse

During the early evening of the 7th we made our third and final screening at the Belval, Caboulosse camp. Over the course of the three days we’d been playing skipping, football and chasing games. I filmed the games using the slow motion setting on the camera, we then played the films back to the children on the big cinema screen the kids and all absolutely loved it!!!! Thanks Mr Hopkison for the inspiration! We screened some of skipping and football films using the music of Zun Zun Egui as sound track, we also set up a Mic and children spontaneously joined in doing running commentaries and singing alongside, making the experience a rich and creative mix.

Hogge came up with the idea of doing a slap stick, throwing water sketch, so we staged the seen, Berlyene our wonderful translator and guide threw water over Hogge whilst i filmed it in slow-mo we then played it back on the big screen to a stunned silence, quickly followed by the children also wanting to do it, so we made a few water slap stick sketches and played them back to a laughing crowed. Next was time for the talent show, during our three times here the children have staged some wonderful singing and rapping performances, coming across as totally confident and in their element.

Once the talent show was finished we all settled down to watch a short Haitian animation followed by the red balloon, which went down really well, everyone laughing, gasping and cheering in all the right places, it was lovely to be amongst such an animated fun audience, of mixed ages.
