Grants talk:Project/Rapid/WBG/Awareness video for Bengali Wikisource/Report
Hi, Bodhisattwa, thank you for submitting this grant report. I have reviewed it along with the expense documentation and I am accepting both. This grant is now complete.
Congratulations on such a successful grant! I watched the videos and shared them with my colleagues and we love them!! The one with the mother and son who wants to go to the "library" was especially witty and made us laugh. We appreciate the creativity in these videos, and are very pleased with the final product. The acting and production is incredibly high quality, and the videos did not suffer because you weren't able to hire famous actors; the actors you used did a marvelous job.
Thank you also for sharing what you learned from the process with WMF and the community. I'm sure that your insight about needing money for promotion will help future grantees who want to make videos like these. Dedicating more of the budget to promoting the film is a great idea, as you want to share the wonderful work you did with the wider community.
We welcome any updates you may wish to provide now or in the future. Thank you for all your hard work and continued engagement with this grant.
