robertkersbergenfilmproducties.nl I made this video for a talented local artist I met in Uganda. His song is about the soul for your roots. The lyrics are about a contemporary African problem: people moving to the city in hopes of better life and end up in poverty in the city where they get detached from their family, cultural traditions and the land of their ancestors.
The makings of the video took over a month: many hours of translating the lyrics, scripting writing the narritive, 3 days of filming and a long time behind the computer for the editing. The entire project was done with a crew of 2 persons and one DSLR camera. Filmed with a Canon 550d with a Sigma 17-50 2.8, Canon 50mm 1.8 and a Canon 70-200 f4 with a shoulder rig, video tripod and monopod for the moving chorus shots. Enjoy!
