Ok, so it has been a long nine months. Hundreds of miles traveled by car, over one-hundred interviews, many many ham sandwiches and the occasional disagreement. But we have completed our documentary and managed to stay friends along the way. We are on a high, but also a low, as we have had a fantastic experience making this documentary.
We have learned so much from this experience and have built on all of the mistakes we have made along the way. We have a better understanding of how to produce a interesting interview from a composition point to an entertaining piece to film. We have discovered that no matter how well you plan your trips, something gets left behind.
What we certainly did get from this experience, was a lot of contacts that may benefit us as we progress through our chosen careers. We met so many fantastic people along the way that were willing to give up their time to help us to make our documentary. We also witnessed first hand the generosity of mentors willing to give their time to enable CoderDojo to become a world movement with the children of the world pt centre stage and allow them to progress on their own terms.
We would like to thank everyone that made this a fantastic project to be involved with and we hope that all of our paths will cross again in the near future.
Many Thanks from our team to all who made this project possible.
Niall O’Sullivan, Martyn Mills, Guitar Egbon and Jonathan Doyle.
