Action Workshop

If you are a social activist you might, eventually, think about video. It is a powerful tool to create awareness for your cause and to bring some justice by giving to the people in need a voice. In your daily professional life, you hear incredible stories, you see things that need to be changed, and film is a very powerful tool to do it. This workshop will give you the basic tools to plan, shoot and distribute your film. The focus is more on viral web-videos. Nevertheless, we will also look at the basic principles of emotional storytelling. After the workshop, you will be ready to use film as a great outlet not only for your marketing, but also for you to tell about your experience as an NGO worker or social activist.
