Webinar for educators

On November 13, 2020 we implemented a webinar for 27 teachers and trainers. The purpose of this webinar was to train them in media literacy and video making. This training was divided into 2 hours, in the first hour we focused on the media literacy part using as a tool the award-winning workshop ''An object in 5 ways". This workshop was the first to be held online and from the reactions of the participants we saw that the transition to the online form was successful.

In the second hour of the training using the short documentary Portrait Day (2019, directed by Maria Leonida) we examined the following:
-the construction of an audiovisual creation
-the relationship between the creativity and the intentions of the creator and the feelings and thoughts of the viewer
-how a shot can promote the story
-how a short film can be designed to be shot in a short amount of time
-presentation and selection of data from the guide for creating short films by our partners in the program from the Netherlands Common Frames.
