Storytelling is a medium through which we can integrate our experiences and make sense of our lives. Through the sharing of our narratives, we are able to better understand each other and greater appreciate our strengths and diversity. With these ideals in mind, Bent Marble offers free and low-cost creative documentary workshops that foster cross-cultural understanding and friendship through empowering people to create their own digital stories with the resources they already possess, and share them with the world!
We welcome you to explore our site and find out more about what we do, where we do it, and how YOU can get involved as a workshop participant or member of the Bent Marble community. Let’s keep this marble rolling!
Koh Samui School Spirit
While Bent Marble’s primary mission is to teach, we are also filmmakers ourselves, and look forward to those opportunities when we are able to use our cinematic skills to help like-minded organizations. This past June and July we had the opportunity to film a promotional video for Koh Samui School, the largest public school on the island of Koh Samui, located off the east coast of Thailand. Despite a language barrier, we were welcomed with open hearts and minds by the entire staff and student body, as we “intruded” for nearly four weeks with our cameras, filming all aspects of school life. Our time at the school fortuitously also coincided with their annual island-wide athletics (track & field) championships, which is highlighted in the piece. And while we couldn’t showcase all the fine folks we met in this short video (recently edited and “hot off the press”), we certainly hope we’ve captured some of their spirit!
