S-O-S Instruction Video
Mo Ijiehin, Cassius Ijiehin age 6, Solomon Olufemi Ijiehin 85
My friend Mo is a busy mother of 2 little ones working in the city living in watford with her lovely husband Ben. I met her on a fateful RPG programming course pre Y2K. Since then she forged a career in the city, whereas I touched on a career in the city and left it to do stuff like this. Anyway I knew Mo would be busy but the amount of effort it took for me to organise this was just not even funny. I think I did not explain the project properly to her, and there seemed to be barriers.
Finally the day of the filming came, and she was over an hour late. There seemed to be a scary anticipation about ‘filming’ and a misunderstanding about the times. I really felt she just didn’t want to do it.
Then when we started and she really got into it and started filming with her own iphone. Her mindset about video documenting broke down, as she saw how easy and quick it was. It was interesting to observe how my friend’s son seem to think he needed to learn lines rather than just spontaneously talk. It was actually really funny because he kept forgetting the ‘lines’ and giggling.
Moreover her father had rehearsed the Kukoburra song and his eyes just lit up every time he sang it.
