National Park Staff and Community Cooperate to Direct Film Presentation

 

Who best knows the beauty of the national parks? If the national park staff and local community partners can shoot short videos from time to time to share with the public, providing unique video stories that observe both the national park ecosystem and cultural history, we are sure that they will be able to touch the hearts of the people and thus continue to promote the concept of national park environmental education to more people.

The presentation of the collaborative direction between the national park staff and local community, which was based on this concept, was also a presentation of the results of the National Park Image Marketing Promotion and Improvement Workshop launched by the Construction and Planning Agency of the Ministry of the Interior this May (2019). Employees from various national park administration offices and community partners gathered on the afternoon of October 15 (Tue) to view the films together and share their views.

A total of 13 films were produced for this presentation. After each video was played for 3 minutes, the organizers held the award ceremony and asked the team representatives to share their thoughts. Representatives of Kenting National Park, which won the Best Screenplay Award and Best Editing Award for “Identifying Hengchun Natives in One Second”, said that the film's creative inspiration was from past guided tour activities. Outsiders did not know that people in Hengchun called the crab “Gan-Ah”, however, the locals also did not know that this name stemmed from the Paiwan language word “gan,” meaning “crab.” This exciting film of just 1 minute and 11 seconds used a Q&A format to clearly explain the relationship between the two.

Representatives of Taijiang National Park, which won the Best Photography Award and the Best Film Award for “Three Lifetimes of the Lagoon”, shared that they were fortunate enough to find community members willing to star in the film and talk about the good and the bad of living by the lagoon. Team members held a meeting once a week. If the weather was not good for aerial shoots and outdoor shoots, the scenes were often re-shot. Even the narration had five recorded versions. In the end, the most appropriate version in Taiwanese was selected. The Taijiang team said that they do not want everyone to think of only the Green Tunnel when they think of Taijiang, instead they want more people to know about the beauty of the Taijiang inland sea.

Kaohsiung Metropolitan Park’s “No Smoking Promotion,” a film different from real-life documentaries, won the Best Music Award. A volunteer's daughter was asked to make the paper-cut scenes. The short film that linked the scenes together was shot separately through post-production, offering a lively animation style that was well received.

Each of the 13 films had scenes that were particularly moving. The Construction and Planning Agency sincerely invites you to spend some time to enjoy them on Youtube.

And please do not forget to show the administration teams your support through likes. We look forward to even more exciting national park ecology films.
