Grassroots Online Video Distribution
The net is quickly becoming one of the most effective ways for video activists to distribute their content. Online distribution means anyone with good internet access can watch your video from around the world. It also allows people with limited means to by-pass the mainstream media and create their own distribution channels.EngageMedia will host a practical workshop covering these topics and more to help you make the most of these online tools.
EngageMedia is a website distributing social justice and environmental video from South East Asia, Australia and the Pacific. The workshop will cover where on the web you can publish your video – creating and subscribing to video podcasts – setting up an account on EngageMedia and publishing to it – how to encode video for distribution on the web copyright/left and licensing your video work – using online video as part of campaign work – free and open-source software tools.
If you have a laptop please bring it along with any video materials you have.
