I want to challenge the participants who were exposed to the various skills that were portrayed at this workshop to begin utilizing their skills to showcase our unique offering of natural and eco attractions in tourism both at the community level and at national level,” Mrs Bellot said.She further impressed upon the participants the need to record and promote the spectacular scenery, landscapes and natural beauty unique to our island, now that they have sharpened their skills.“You can now record all of the spectacular scenery and landscapes of Dominica as you hike along the Waitukubuli National Trail and you can certainly show Dominicans and our visitors alike the natural beauty which abounds in Dominica.”Mrs Bellot also noted that developing Dominica as a location for filming will stimulate the growth of that industry as well as lead to the diversification of our economy.“There is no doubt in our minds at the Ministry of Tourism that developing Dominica as a location for film, for fashion shoots, for advertisement shoots, etcetera has very great potential and it is the skills of persons such as yourselves which will stimulate the growth of this industry. We therefore encourage you to pursue your vision and our vision of furthering the development of the audio visual sector for the benefit of all of us and eventually for the diversification of our economy,” she said.The two week workshop geared at upgrading the skills of videographers in Dominica was facilitated by Cuban Film Editor and Film-maker Mr Oriel Rodriguez, a teacher at the International Film and Television School in Havana, Cuba.Film Commissioner Mrs. Anita Bully.

As you know Dominicans air waves are being bombarded by foreign material that promotes foreign values and attitudes,” she said.Mrs Bully also highlighted taken steps to ensure that our air waves are not only bombarded with foreign content but also local film productions.“The Film Office thinks it is extremely important to change this and as a result has begun doing the following; liaising with local producers and film makers and encourage them to come together and form an association, to produce local films and television programs, and at the same time keeping them informed of training opportunities available, funding opportunities that are available, upcoming festivals and call for entries and other industry related information or activities,” Mrs Bully said.Dominica Vibes News LocalNews Videographers encouraged to showcase Dominica’s natural and eco attractions by: – September 17, 2011 Sharelast_img read more
