jamproStudent directors from the Northern Caribbean University's (NCU) Lignum Vitae Film Festival had the opportunity to rap with Dan Glendenning and Geraldine Hawkins, the editor and line producer, respectively, of the recently released documentary Marley: The Definitive Story, at a workshop organised by JAMPRO, through the Jamaica Film Commission, at the agency's New Kingston office last week.

Drawing from the experience of Marley: The Definitive Story, which focusses on the life of reggae icon Bob Marley, Glendenning noted that it was important to get the views of everybody involved in the story in order to present a complete picture. He pointed out that the film's director, Kevin Macdonald, went to great lengths to ensure he got interviews with persons who had never before been interviewed for any major production on Marley. One such person was a janitor from Studio One, who shared a room with Marley in his early years.

Local filmmakers Storm Saulter and Tanya Taylor, vice-president of the Jamaica Film Producers' Association and one of the judges in the Lignum Vitae Film Festival, were also in attendance at the workshop and imparted their knowledge to the student directors.

Kim Marie Spence, JAMPRO's creative-industries manager and film commissioner, said she was heartened by the positive response to the work of the NCU student directors.
