GOLYPOON

For many years now Golypoon empowers people to discover and develop answers & solutions for problems and chances in their own environment. All participants produce personal filmstories to speak out, get more impact and to inspire stakeholders.

A POWERFUL SIXSHOTSTORY™ METHOD

Participants use our Sixshotstory™ method to discover and develop their own answers & solutions to problems & challenges in their environment and to translate these into filmstories.

  • analyse the subject
  • brainstorm to develop original personal answer or solution
  • writing a scenario & choose media format
  • produce a storyboard
  • film the scenario
  • edit the footage
  • present the filmstory to stakeholders via online and social media platforms

  

1. AWARENESS

ANALYSE, FIND OUT AND CREATE A SYNOPSIS

First goal of the Buddyfilm project is to raise awareness. Our simple but effective sixshotstory™method helps participants to analyse the situation they are in. They are motivated to ask critical questions about this and summarize these in a synopsis.

2. EMPOWERMENT

CREATE YOUR OWN STORY

With this synopsis participants are empowered to create their own story. They are motivated to look for new perspectives, goals, answers and even solutions for the difficulties and problems summarized. In this process each participant is co-working with a buddy who helps to ask difficult questions, think further, motivate and co-create to create the participants own story. Participants try to add images to empower the story and put this story into a scenario.
When stories are finished, the filmproces can begin. All participants use smartphones to get the footage. Together with their buddies they learn how to use the smartphone as a camera. When the footage is done, the edit phase begins. Now all participants give power to their story by adding titles, text and music.
