Lights, Camera Jemuru - Adventures of a Film-Maker in Ethiopia is the remarkable true-life story of a high-flying adman who swapped his expense account lifestyle in London to go and teach in a back-street community film school, Gem TV, in Addis Ababa. Bob Maddams spent years living and working in Ethiopia and filming took him and the Gem TV filmmakers all over the country; from shanty towns and famine feeding stations to the rock hewn churches of Lalibela and the source of the Blue Nile. Each encounter stripped away another layer of the Live Aid image of Ethiopia to reveal a country of staggering natural beauty, Biblical history, diverse ethnic groups, and a culture as rich as the people are poor. But most of all Lights, Camera, Jemuru is the uplifting story of Gem TV, the young filmmakers whose films are transforming the lives of ordinary people all over Ethiopia. Sometimes funny, often sad, and always moving, the story portrays this most ancient of countries as it struggles to define its place in the modern world. While for the 400 million people all over the world who watched Live Aid and wondered whatever happened to Ethiopia, it provides a fascinating answer. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Seys.

Have you ever wanted to make your own film? Is there a story you want to tell? You might even think that this is impossible. ´´Studios make films, not the little guy.´´ This is probably what you tell yourself. Do you watch films with more than a casual eye? You probably want to know how they were able to get perfect lighting in your favorite scene, or how to write a professional screenplay. Do you watch Inside the Actor´s Studio and hang on every word they say? My last question is, do sit in your seat at the movie when it´s over watching the credits as everyone else files out the door? I know you have dreamed about it, but have you ever seriously contemplated making your own film? Yes, Virginia, you too can make your own film, all on your own. If you have played with the idea of what it would be like to direct a film, then you have already made an imaginary plan. Why not make it a reality? What else are you doing with your time: going to work at the factory every day? Are you thinking that filmmaking is only for studios and professionals? I believe that independent film has changed all the rules. Doors are opening all over for aspiring filmmakers. Why not give it a try - what do you have to lose? With a little imagination and a lot of hard work you can do this, but you need the basics to get started. If you feel like you don´t know where to start the process, I will show you. 1.
