SHONA video


One of the things that I enjoy about my work with SHONA and about life here in Congo is that I end up doing things I never expected to do. Like making videos.

I am just learning how to do this, and my connection is not good enough to see how it downloads online, so I'd love to hear from you. (I am assuming that everyone has a better connection than me). Please let me know, does it play???

Hi! This is great! The video comes across very well with a great story and photos -- until 4:09 when it turns into a black screen with no sound. I let it run on anyway. At 6:55, your voice comes back on with final comments, but still on a black screen.

LOVED the first four minutes!

Hi Melinda,
So glad to hear some feedback. THe video actualy should only be those four minutes, so you got the whole thing...Success! THe fact that it didn't cut off after the screen went blank, and my voice returns briefly in the sixth minute is a mistake. SO basically, it worked! THat is fabulous! Now i just have to figure out what to do with it!
