help me to make a miracle
Posted April 17th, 2012 - 10:17 pm by from Kyiv, Ukraine (Permalink)
Hi all,
sorry for posting it here, maybe it does not relate to the group but I am asking for a huge favour and would really appreciate your help.
My best friends - Sasha and Olia are getting married at the begining of May. I want to make a surprise/present for them.
My idea is to create a small video where people from different countries and continents will greet them and wish them all the best in their life.
Wishes can be made as a small video or as a picture of you or your friends holding a poster with names Sasha and Olia and your wishes. It would be ideal if you can manage to make both, pictures and the video of you drawing the poster and taking the picture.
There are no strict rules- you may involve all your imagination and do whatever you want: jump, run, swim, scream, dance, or whatever - just make it clear for Sasha and Olia , that it is a message for them - the world is happy for their love.

Here are some recommendations of how to make a video/photo .
Video: please, try to make it short - up to 1-2 minutes. Mention their names in the video - Sasha and Olia. You can speak your native language or english/ukrainian (try to spell VITAYEMO VAS). At the end of the video, mention where it was taken (city/country) and by whom (your name). Try to record it in a front of some famous place related to your city/country. Hold a symbol of your country - (it may be a small flag)

Photo: write names Sasha and Olia (in Ukrainian: Саша та Оля) somewhere (a poster, a wall of the building, beach sand etc) and take the picture of it. If it is a poster/paper - draw or write something interesting beside their names. It is better when multiple people are holding the poster and smile to the camera )) Try to find a good background - local famous places.

Try to make video/photo interesting and exciting!

Take it easy! You don't need any special equipment - make a picture/video on your camera or mobile phone. Send it to me ruzhytskyi@gmail.com or, if it is heavy - upload it to the site - www.mydrive.net Login: ukraine password: ukraine. (Site is easy to navigate).

All the materials (video and photo) will be assembled by professional filmmaker. So, you will be able to watch the result. ))

Important - please try to send it before 25 April 2012.

I will be very grateful to everyone who respond to the email and help me turn this idea to reality!!
Stay in touch!
