EngageMedia is hosting another workshop on video distribution in Indonesia, this time in Makassar, South Sulawesi. The 2-day workshop from April 23-24, 2010 will explore how to use online and offline distribution tools to maximise the impact of your advocacy video.
Independent video makers everywhere often wonder what to do with the videos they produce. You can send it to some film festival but is it reaching your audience? Do you print 100 copies and pass it to friends? Do you put it on some shelves and hope people buy it? Do you upload it to YouTube and wait for someone to watch it? Is there an effective way to get your video out there into the path of your mass audience? Maybe you have to do a bit of everything.
We at Engagemedia would like to share with you how producers of critical films around the world are distributing their videos. EngageMedia is an online video sharing, free software and skills-building initiative focused on social justice and environmental issues within the Asia-Pacific region.
Topics covered in the workshop will include:
- building a digital video delivery strategy
- the use of video and online technologies in campaigning work
- introduction to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS)
- compressing video for publishing online
- where to publish and how to use your online content in a website or blog
- combining on and off-line distribution tools and techniques
- use of Creative Commons and open content licensing, including finding media to use in your production
