Share Your Voice - coming soon

By Bella Sie On May 31, 2013 | 0 Comments

I have just emerged from the depths of the edit suite, and am happy to announce that the SACY project Kat and I have been working on has an official name: Share Your Voice. 

Share Your Voice is a project that features the honest thoughts and opinions of real Vancouver youth on real youth issues. What challenges do today's youth face? How do youth cope with their stresses? Where can youth access info on safety, or get support? These are all questions we asked these teens from high schools across the Vancouver School District. Their voices are the stars of this project which includes a 15-minute video around SACY's 4 S's - Speak Up, Get Smart, Stay Safe, Get Support - and a series of posters. 

We are currently in the final approval stages of this project, so hang tight and you'll catch a glimpse of all the aforementioned work shortly.

Day 2 at STRONG 2013

Guest Blogger Mike Jacko  has joined the team from the Circles of Understanding project. HCW Is thrilled to have his help with the conference and to be working with him on the new COU project too. Here's his panorama pic of the tweet team in action! 


The Hello Cool World team has been full-on tweeting, and filming the confernce! Many interviews have been done, and many are still to come tomorrow! Saw an iphone on a tripod, went to the Indigitization workshop, learnt about some of the challenges of entering into the digital world, checked out the Online Safety workshop, and also checked out Cross-media Story-telling workshop facilitated by the amazing Cease Wyss. I also missed several other awesome workshops because they all run at the same time :(   The conference has so much information I can barely keep up.  Looking forward to the next few days, can't wait to hear more ideas from First Nations people about Indigitizing their communities! Exciting!! - MJ

CDC 2013 recap

By Maria Martin On March 20, 2013 | 0 Comments

The three days at the CDC Conference was a whirlwind of mid-week fun. The team was there to live-tweet CDC conference happenings + their projects around First Nations health and social media promotion. Many attendees recognized and were aware of our projects and campaigns. We did live tweeting & video interviews throughout the conference, so stay tuned for our vlog post highlighting the event. We asked people what community health meant to them & what community health looked like in First Nations communities. We also interviewed Dr. Evan Adams who explained the connection between community health and the new First Nations Health Authority. The wellness model takes a mind, body, spirit approach.

SACY Project Motoring Along

By Linh Tra On February 19, 2013 | 0 Comments

SACY Project Video Well Underway! intern Linh Tra with editor Bella Sie in front of the rough cut! 

Hello Cool World has made tremendous progress with the SACY project over the last few weeks. Back in January we held a couple of video shoots with the youth and got excellent content for the documentary around the 4 S’s: be smart, speak up, be safe, and get support. We also held a super fun photo shoot for the SACY poster. The youth got their hair and makeup done, which the girls really enjoyed, but the boys.... yeah, not so much hehe!

Overall the video footage and the photos turned out great and we had so much great material to work with, it took me weeks to transcribe it. : )  Then the editing process began! This usually takes a pretty long time, but Bella, being superwoman, finished it in a week. We're waiting now for SACY coordinator Helenka to see it, before heading back into the edit suite. So, now we’ve already got the rough draft of the documentary completed and ready for approval, on to the next steps. Way to go Hello Cool World!

I can’t wait to see the final product! We’ll keep you posted!

Hi! My name is Linh. I am a Bachelor of Nursing student at Vancouver Community College. I am excited to be working with Hello Cool World as part of my community health clinical. I chose Hello Cool World because it is completely different than any other types of nursing that I’ve done before. It also allowed me to combine my love for nursing with my interest for film and media. The Hello Cool World team members are amazing and so creative! I’m not a very creative person, so I’m really stepping out of my comfort zone here! But it’s an awesome experience!
