Mmm...Teaching and learning.
I got a call a month and a half ago from a co-worker/friend from my teaching times at Inictel to teach the course of Non-Linear Editing, just as back then. Last time I saw him was at a get-together we all coworkers had last year. He asked me if I was interested to teach again. Couldn't answer right away as I was in the middle of filming and had to think about it.
It's been almost 6 years since I left teaching at Inictel. In the latter years, it has been annexed to the Universidad de Ingenieria-UNI (Engineering University) and has changed quite a bit for what I heard. All of my coworker friends are long gone from there and he is the only one still in it. I truly thought about it as teaching is a thing I always enjoyed. Did it from 2000 until 2006/07 aprox and also now its very frantic times because of the film. No time even for a personal life! But the offer was just weekends and for just a couple months. So I agreed.
It is good to be back to teaching again -even for a while- as sharing knowledge is a way of progressing and also having feedback from new generations of filmmakers or communicators in order to grow oneself. You never stop learning. Back in the days I had students from all walks of life, from video enthusiasts, future filmmakers, TV station editors, news reporters, gossip show camera men, counter-surveillance intelligence officers, army officers, navy officers, audio editors, musicians, etc.... and all either studying the whole career in Inictel or just as a free course.
Teaching....gives me a purpose to keep pushing strong in life.
