Film Annex #16: Soccer in Afghanistan

Before I post a double-header worth of pictures this week, check out my new Film Annex article covering the up and coming Afghani soccer league.

On a personal note: I am in the middle of a crazy time in my life. I am trying to produce a 6 episode series coming up here in the next few months (for more info, check out www.film-local.com/news), so if I’m not as prompt with my posts/drawings, that’s why. So allow me to apologize for that in advance–it will be an irregular football season this year, but I will get the coverage out as quickly as I can, I promise.

Anyway–Film Annex! Soccer! Check it out.

Film Annex #14: Eva Hoffman

Yes, okay…the Packers lost. I will be the first to admit this is a very, very, very, VERY sad way to begin the season. BUT…maybe, just MAYBE…it’s not the worst thing in the world for us at this stage?

More on that later in the week. But now, first things first. My latest article is up on Film Annex, covering an interview with Eva Hoffman, an employee of the Center f International and Intercultural Communication at the Technical University of Berlin. Watch her share her experience teaching in an Afghan school, hear her thoughts on the differences between German and Afghanistan students, and learn her perspective on Film Annex’s initiatives in Afghanistan. It’s worth a look.

FA Article #12: PubMatic

Article 12, huh? This marks my third “ending” to my contract (originally it was for 4 articles and I’ve been renewed twice). Here’s hoping for a fourth!

This week, I’m covering the interview conducted with Kirk McDonald, founded of the digital ad management company PubMatic. He’s very well-spoken, charitable, and of the interviews I’ve covered, he has probably the most to say about the Afghan Development Project. It was really a joy to watch.

Read my blog on Film Annex to find out more.

COMING THIS WEEK: a blast from my past. We’re talking, like, 1992. Curious? Stay tuned.

Film Annex Article #5: Film Annex Afghanistan Development Project

Couple o’ things:

1) My contract with Film Annex has been renewed for 4 more articles (w00t!)

2) From now on, the articles will be exclusively Afghanistan-oriented. As you saw last time, the founder is very into Afghanistan development. He’s even been interviewed by the United Nations about it (check out my WebTV channel for more the video of that interview BTW).

This article is about one of his projects, the Film Annex Afghanistan Development Project. No, it doesn’t really roll off the tongue, but it’s mission is still very cool: to present a new image of Afghanistan through web education, and to provide Internet to 160,000 Afghani school children. I think I mentioned the Internet thing in my article about Francesco Rulli, but it was so interesting I had to find out more. Luckily, I was given the opportunity.
