Simone de Hoogh about why she started PowerWood


A Huge Thank YOU

We want to give a Huge Thank YOU to Kate Jangra, independent filmmaker for her professional input, the workshops in which she helped the children and teens to make their own films and her continued emphasis on this important medium.If a video doesn’t look high quality, it’s because Kate wasn’t involved (enough) or because she allowed children and teens to explore creatively their filming fun or because we were just plain stubborn.Without Kate we wouldn’t be able to share with you in this appealing visual way, that works for many of us very well. Thank YOU KATE!!!
