PRIMEX shoots video in Gen San for USAID Legacy project

The PRIMEX Legacy Project Team conducted an on-site video shoot of USAID projects in General Santos City and South Cotabato on 24-29 August 2016. The video coverage is the first of a series of location shoots scheduled in the month of September in selected USAID-assisted projects in the Philippines. Other project sites to be covered within the month include Makati City, Batangas, Bohol, and Zamboanga City.

The footage from these sites will form part of a 10-minute video that will highlight the celebration of partnership between the US and the Philippines over the last 50 years. The video is one of three major deliverables under the Legacy Project, which will showcase the positive impacts of the USAID assistance in the Philippines in the education, health, agriculture, governance, environment, humanitarian, and security sectors. The other deliverables include a photobook of 25 case stories and a set of exhibit materials.

Cameramen JC and Dong take close-up shots of plant personnel processing asparagus produced by GEM Project beneficiary Greenland Asparagus Multi-Purpose Cooperative in Barangay San Jose, General Santos City. The cooperative’s plant and farm personnel are predominantly B’la-an.
