Arvind Raj of 'Free Malaysia Today' got the calling to become a videomaker when he was thousands of feet above sea level. Nevertheless, the Camp Sambel 2 videomaker is all about giving voice to the minority groups through his writings and videos.
Working in partnership with KOMAS, EngageMedia hosted a video distribution, security and public engagement camp for activists from Indonesia, Malaysia, Southern Philippines, Southern Thailand, Singapore and East Timor from February 19 to 24, 2012.
The camp was held in Port Dickson, Malaysia, and brought together key cultural groups and individuals to discuss, share skills and collaborate around digital video distribution, freedom of expression, campaigning, secure use of video and public engagement. The event built upon the previous 2010 Camp Sambel, in Malang, Indonesia.
The Camp Sambel 2 program was largely determined by participants, who presented current projects, discussed strategic distribution and campaigning, learned compressing, subtitling and uploading video, and held screenings.
