In a visual tribute to frontliners of the COVID-19, Brunei Student’s Union in the United Kingdom (UK) and Eire (BSUnion) made a video dedicated to all frontliners fighting the virus outbreak.

President of BSUnion Awangku Mohammad Hisyam Al-Yura bin Pengiran Haji Zainal Abidin shared with the Sunday Bulletin the five-minute-four-second video clip, which was also shared all over the social network platforms.

Awangku Mohammad Hisyam who completed his mandatory quarantine on April 6 after returning from UK with other batch of Bruneian students who arrived Brunei on March 22 said the idea was developed when a parent suggested them to thank the government, in particular the Ministry of Health (MoH).

“So BSUnion came up with the idea to use the social media to reach a wider audience. After we had an initial idea of the structure of the video, we started contacting students and telling them we were planning to make a video project for the government and frontliners,” he added.

The video was produced with social distancing rule and to get more involvement from students, clips were received via online networks. Since they planned to include a large number of students, each student was given five seconds. They were required to hold a paper that says “Thank You”.

The video was made possible with 107 students with different creative approaches. It took them four days to produce.

“This video, is also on behalf of the students from Malaysia, Egypt, Australia, China, the United States (US) as well as other countries, showing how grateful we are to the government.”
