First Skype With Blue Heart Charity

Hello, my name is Som Oun. I am one of the PLF video team. In December of 2011, my teammates Sen, Sopha and I made video about water wells in Kok Snoul village. It was the first video we ever made.

Because we put our Water Well video on YouTube, our team has a volunteer coming to teach us to fix the well. His name is Eugene Nelson and his organization is called Blue Heart Charity. He asked us to make a  video about his organization’s work in our village, so on Wednesday 25 April, we Skyped with him. We were at Chey School and he was in United States. We talked about how to make a video for him.

Mr. Nelson  will arrive on Monday 14th May 2012. He also comes to fix some wells in our village. He provides our team with money to make a video for him about fixing the well. We had to skype with him to ask about how long to make the video, what music to put on the video, what to show in the video, and who the audience will be because he is our client.

It was the 2nd time to Skype for us. We were able to see Mr. Nelson face to face and we asked him questions about when he comes in May. Now we are planning for the video by writing the script and brainstorming the video shots. We are happy to make video for Mr. Nelson and to show the activities of fixing the well to our audience.

Som Oun is 14 years old and lives Kok Snoul village in Siem Reap Province, Cambodia. He is in grade 8 at Somdach Ouv High School and an alumni of Tchey School. His first video “Water Wells in My Village” hooked Som Oun on being a cameraman. He continues to make videos as part of the PLF Video Production Team.

  1. I’m looking forward to the new video. “Water Wells in My Village” was excellent. I’m so glad Mr. Nelson saw it an is coming to help with your wells. With a little help, your village will be able to fix their own wells. Someone might even decide to become a really good at fixing wells and travel to other villages to fix theirs. Pretty soon people will be asking for them and paying them to fix their wells and a new business will be formed. Good Luck! 

  2. I was very obviously very touched and impressed by their
    video “Water Wells in my Village”. Not only does the video tell the
    story of their lives, it does so in such a humble and unassuming manner. I was
    happy to meet this group of young film makers for the first time on Skype. They
    seemed very thorough and very knowledgeable. I can tell they have some good
    ideas about making a promotional film for the Blue Heart Charity. I am very
    excited to work with this team on the film. I am also very happy to work with
    Soy Sen and anyone else on well maintenance and repair training. I think they
    will be happy when they see all of the good we will do together in their
