    by YouNet Company 113 1 0
    Director: Lucas Yuwaganit Li Producer: Walter Van Praag Length: TBA - possibly 4x 30-minute episodes. Categories: Health & Wellbeing, Sport / Adventure Stage of Production: Post-production Coughing the Distance was filmed with the aid of two high definition cam-corders. One camcorder was always with Lucas and if Lucas was riding the other camcorder would be with the support vehicle. If Lucas was helping out with the support video the other camcorder was with the riders. We also had one helmet-cam.

  • Change of heart
    by YouNet Company 114 0 0
    Last week, our charity, Autism Treatment Trust organised a small exhibition at the Scottish Parliament. I took this opportunity to film and photograph the site. I’ll skip on the controversy regarding the cost of this building and whether or not this is art, I let you to judge for yourself. But I thought perhaps it would be an opportunity to express a little what a parliament is for. Incidentally, last week, there were also some high school students protesting against the plans to set University fees in Scotland. As you know, Universities in Scotland are free for people living in the country, a refreshing contrast with England and the US. Setting huge entry fees to universities is in my mind a very anti-democratic move. But what is democracy really and does it work? “Do you think majority stand for evidence of truth?” (Quote from Girl X, theatre play, Pol Heyvaert, Robert Softley & Bart Capelle. Edinburgh 05.03.11). “The spirit of democracy is not a mechanical thing to be adjusted by abolition of forms. It requires change of heart.” (Gandhi). Autism is what brought us last week to the Parliament. A change of heart is likely what it would take to respond more effectively to the growing number of children affected with autism and related conditions. The numbers speaks for themselves. In 2010, there were 6,506 children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) in schools (primary, secondary, special education combined). This is just under 1% of the school population. There were also 7,200 children with speech or communication disorder and a further 14,738 children with social, emotional or behavioural difficulties; in total, 28,444 children affected with related conditions, or 4.2% of the school population. Importantly, special education teachers and head teachers have reported children presenting with autism in schools who are still not diagnosed today. These two additional speech and behavioural categories almost certainly include children with an ASD. For information, 9.3% of the total school population is classified as having additional needs. That is almost double the figure of last year, and this does not relate to better awareness or better diagnosis, because many children are still incorrectly diagnosed. A change of heart… is often all what it takes to make things better for other people. Sorry- No view of the debating chamber.

  • Sweet Dreams - Long Trailer
    by YouNet Company 101 0 0
    In 1994 Rwanda suffered a devastating genocide. Close to a million were killed by neighbors, friends, even family. Horror swept the land. And when it was over, those who remained were broken, dead inside. The country has made great strides in economic recovery, but "people are not like roads and buildings" says Kiki Katese, pioneering Rwandan theater director. "How do we rebuild a human being?" Kiki decided to start Ingoma Nshya, Rwanda's first and only women's drumming troupe, open to women from both sides of the conflict. There was only one requirement: to leave the categories of the past at the gate. Sweet Dreams follows this remarkable group of Rwandan women as they emerge from the devastation of the genocide to create a new future for themselves.

  • Snubbed 2013 - An Oscar Tribute
    by YouNet Company 120 0 0
    The Academy Awards are drawing near once again and with 2012 being one of the most incredible years for film in recent memory, it will be a show for the books. Unfortunately with every new year though comes a list of extremely talented filmmakers that sadly don't receive the recognition they deserve so I've decided to once again dedicate this compilation to those that we all love but simply didn't make it in. Of course everyone will have different opinions on who should win and who shouldn't so this is simply our combined thoughts on who was snubbed in 2012. Much like last year, I've decided to create a formal tribute to those films and the talent behind them in specific categories of the Oscars much like you would see during a normal ceremony broadcast. These films and the actors/crews that put them together deserve recognition so this is my "thank you" to them. Enjoy! The films in the list includes: "The Grey", "Django Unchained", "Zero Dark Thirty", "Life of Pi", "Looper", "Cloud Atlas", "Killer Joe", "Compliance", "The Intouchables", "Samsara", "Beyond the Black Rainbow", "Moonrise Kingdom" and more. Music tracks used: i) All Boundaries Are Conventions - "Cloud Atlas" ii) A Life in a Day - "Looper" iii) Everything Comes Around - "Looper" A congratulations to all of this year's official Oscar nominees.
