EngageMedia will be putting on screening in conjunction with Plug-In TV (Channel 31 Melbourne). We will be screening highlights of documentary, experimental and fiction videos from the website, and doing a short presentation of the project.
The net is quickly becoming one of the most effective ways for video activists to distribute their content. EngageMedia will be running a workshop in Adelaide on February 26th, come along and learn how you can use online distribution tools to get your video work out there.
EngageMedia unfortunately suffered a hard drive failure on our very recently leased new server. We’re very sorry about this however it was largely out of our control. We emphasise that the site is currently in it’s Beta stage and that these things are possible under these conditions. We are currently working on getting everything restored and we should be ready in the next day or two.
Engagemedia is now open for publishing! We’re excited to announce this first public beta release of the EngageMedia software. Sign up, get your own profile page and start publishing your video! We’ll be doing an official launch of the website and our first workshop for indy video makers at the Earthling Environmental Forum on the 30th of September at TINA in Newcastle, NSW.
The Audio and Video edition of NGO-in-a-box is a toolkit of Free and Open Source Software documentation and tutorials for NGOs, non-profits and media activists. Produced by Tactical Tech in collaboration with EngageMedia the box aims to lower the entry level for NGOs and individuals wanting to use audio and video for social change.
EngageMedia along with Candida TV hosted Transmission from June 6-11, 2006 in Rome. The event was a meeting place of video makers, programmers and web producers developing online video distribution as a tool for social justice and media democracy.
