Talent of community: sketch-a-talk videos animate Arab Spring themes on Ikbis

14/12/2011

What happens when you interview a diverse bunch of Arab activists and new media geeks one Skype, edit all of it dow to a few minutes, get an amazingly talented cartoonist, mix in a video camera and some video and sound editing dudes?

Ikbis has been experimenting with “community produced videos”. By pulling in different talents from across the Ikbis community of creative and technical people it was able to produce these two videos for the German broadcaster Deutsche Welle and the Arab Thought Forum in record time.

Have a look..
