Teams from Mali and Niger trained in video production
The ICRISAT-HOPE project sponsored a training program aimed at equipping local teams with the knowledge and techniques of video production. This is seen as a more sustainable approach to developing videos, rather than relying on expensive external producers. The first such training took place from 7 to 18 February 2011 in Tominian, a small town, about 40 km north of San, where one of the first Farmer Field School sites was established by ICRISAT in Mali.
Participants from Niger and Mali comprised scientists from ICRISAT Sadoré and Bamako, Institut National de Recherche Agronomique

du Niger (INRAN, centre audio-visuelle), farmers’ associations (FUMA-Gaskiya in Niger and Union des Agriculteurs de Cercle de Tominian (UACT in Mali), as well as implementing partners (Communications Project PPILDA-Aguie and ONG AMED in Mali). The two teams including participants from Mali and Niger were trained by Paul van Mele (Agro-insight) and Josephine Rodgers (Country wise) in:
- Script research and writing
- Involving farmers in planning, capturing and evaluation of the videos
- Filming on farm with professional camera and tripod
- Interviewing techniques and
- Capturing interviews and film editing using video editing software Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.
The workshop was very intensive, including long days out in the field for participants to finish their video program. The result from the training is two preliminary versions of short films (video modules) for farmer training on “Compost production” and “Economical analysis of farmer field school trials”.
After Tominian in Mali, PROMISO 2 Project is planning to have two more trainings in Tanzania and Nigeria with Ethiopia and Ghana as visiting
