Cuddly Toy Sleepover – The Movie

Nadja Gragert-Klier 

As a cooperation project of the Tempelhof-Schöneberg city library, the Encounters media workshop has access to professional photo, video and sound equipment. Staff members of the Tempelhof Schöneberg city library requested a workshop that would equip them with the know-how for handling this equipment in the long-term. A project idea was quickly developed: “Cuddly Toy Sleepover – The Movie”. 

The Cuddly Toy Sleepover is a product of the children’s department which enjoys great popularity and was presented to a large audience during the FAMILY NIGHT 2020. 

Workshop leader Ina Schebler first gave an introduction to the basics of photography and film, and led exercises with studio lighting and various microphones. Together, the participants developed the storyboard for their video. Over the following days they jointly produced videos, photos and sound recordings and learned how to put them together with an editing program. The result can be seen here:
