road route (see map above) with a four wheel drive in order to have all our filming
equipment handy and at the same time enjoy the beautiful landscape this
route has to offer! Other reasons were to be able to film on the way and
explore easily the rich surroundings!

The multimedia training organized by
CMCs in Ethiopia and other developing countries face great difficulties
in ensuring their long-term financial sustainability after the initial
seed project funding that created them dries up. With this lesson in
mind, the workshop will also be seeking to expose participants to the
concept of social enterprise and encourage them in identifying ways in
which the skills developed in the workshop can be used to both provide
meaningful and beneficial services to their respective communities while
at the same time providing opportunities for revenue generation,
part-time or even full-time employment and the longer term sustenance of
the CMC concept.
Hopefully, the sharing of experiences and meeting of these creative
young minds will provide new, rich and innovative locally relevant
insights to the challenge of sustainability.

Ababa for rural Community multimedia centers (CMCs) in Ethiopia.
workshop will focus on reinforcing skills and capacities of 10
young men and women from the UNESCO centers located in the towns
of Bahir Dar and Harar. In addition to being exposed to the
underlying technical skills and theory behind using digital
cameras, audio-visual digital editing software, participants will
have ample opportunities to gain hands-on experience in creating
multimedia products in local languages addressing local
The workshop will seek to build on experiences gained in a previous training conducted for the Harar CMC in conjunction with the Harar Regional Bureau for Youth, Sports and Culture which oversees the operation of the Harar CMC and to share their experiences in social enterprise with the Bahir Dar group. One outcome of this earlier workshop was the production of a VCD highlighting various aspects of the history and culture of the city of Harar and which is now being sold to tourists and visitors. The Harar CMC is also pursuing plans to design and print t-shirts which can provide other streams of revenue in addition to the traditional offerings of ICT courses and printing services.

|A previous training of the Hareri group 2005-2006 During the multimedia training everybody had a good hands-on experience with capturing and editing DV video! Picture taken in front of the CRDA entrance. All participants photographed with me and Mr. Paul Hector from UNESCO top row in the middle.||Part of our project "Harar the medieval walled city" was to give a comprehensive training to a local team in filming and multimedia. The idea was to produce a promotional CD / DVD about all aspects of Harar and at same time to give means and knowledge to a local team of creative individuals in order to be able to involve themselves in future productions. The overall training program included filming, editing and authoring interactive CDs in order to finally produce CDs and DVDs with local content. The last part of this training course was held in CRDA compound here in Addis Abeba with six participants from Harar and one participant from Addis itself. The scope of this final session of the Multimedia training was to conclude all subjects taught in the previous sessions using Adobe's Photoshop and Premiere as well as Macromedia's Director. We had also to put together all edited material filmed previously on location and produce the final interactive CD using Macromedia's Director ! This proved to be a difficult task as we had to record and insert all 'voice over' audio parts in video clips needing narration as well as to correct all spelling and historical mistakes! But with the help of the Hareri team we manage to overcome all problems, complete this difficult task and successfully produce the interactive CD during this final session!|

All video clips filmed are edited, then explanatory graphics added together with comments about the progress of a particular section. Finally we deliver this video clips in form of a DVD with a date stamp to the management.
