Giving is the matter of the heart not of the pockets, a Swahili proverb says. The act of donation decided by the broadcasting graduates of Han Chiang University College of Communication (HCUC) is a testament to the above proverb. The profits gained through the L’ultimo Film e-screening 2021 have been used to purchase livestream equipment for their alma mater and daily essentials for Penang’s Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak OKU.
The livestream gadget known as Blackmagic ATEM Mini switcher priced at RM1,300 was donated to HCUC, whereas goods amounting to RM1,300 were safely delivered to Penang’s Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak OKU.
Vice-Director of L’ultimo Film, Chew Ker Ying expressed that the Blackmagic ATEM Mini switcher would be beneficial for upcoming students as the switcher is necessary to conduct live streaming sessions.
“About five students visited Penang’s Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak OKU with HCUC’s lecturer, Mr. Lee Kean Wei delivered goods such as rice, milk powder, shampoo, shower gel, masks, disinfectant, and many others,” L’ultimo Film Event Director Billy Ong said.
“We decided to deliver goods for Penang’s Persatuan Kebajikan Kanak-Kanak OKU due to its remote location which is usually neglected,” Billy added.
44 HCUC’s broadcasting graduates organised their L’ultimo Film e-screening on 11th December 2021 and sold nearly 800 tickets.
