This training program is designed to enhance the competencies of young individuals in the dynamic realm of videography, empowering them as adept contributors to active citizenship.
Throughout this engaging experience, participants will immerse themselves in every facet of videography —spanning from meticulous planning to hands-on production and intricate post-production processes. The journey involves embarking on a series of non-formal videography group challenges strategically set against the backdrop of Brno. These challenges encompass a diverse range of creative tasks, such as crafting documentaries, engaging in guerrilla filmmaking,
exploring digital storytelling, orchestrating chain-of-shot sequences, and participating in character improvisation exercises.
Beyond honing technical skills, participants will seize the opportunity to channel their ideas, needs, and opinions about societal issues through the lens of videography. This program fosters a platform for dialogue and collaboration, allowing participants to actively engage with the local community and contribute meaningfully to the broader discourse.

- Participation costs: There are no participation costs. Both travel, accommodation, and food are funded by the Erasmus+ program of the European Union.
However, to avoid last-minute cancelations, participants who are selected will need to pay a 50€ deposit to confirm their participation.
This is to avoid last-minute cancelations and to cover possible damages caused by the participants on the accommodation. The money is sent back after the activity.
