On January 21-23, 2018, the EU-funded Open Media Hub Project is organising Advanced Broadcast Training for 15 TV journalists/cameramen/ editors from Palestinian media – a 3-day course on news production focused on editorial, filming, writing and editing skills.
During the course, participating TV crews will produce appealing and informative visual stories editorially relevant for your outlets in a format pertinent for your news broadcasts. The stories will be broadcast on your outlets and made available on the Open Media Hub’s platform and website, for exchange between participants locally and internationally.
The focus of the training will be on Telling an Impactful Story using MOJO.
The training will also focus on the ‘Being 20’ series. Developed and produced by the Open Media Hub, ‘Being 20’ is a series of short 90-second stories depicting the life and aspirations of youth in European Neighbourhood Countries. Each story may then be used by all the participants as a single story or potentially as a series, which we will be developing across the 17 European Neighbourhood countries where we are working. We will later make a call for production and finance the production of some of these stories.
The trainers will be journalists Stephane Bentura and Simon Husting, supported locally by Walid Batrawi.
Stories will be discussed and selected ahead of the training in liaison with the trainers. During the training, participating crews are asked to provide their own filming and editing gear.
To apply, please fill in the online application form below. The deadline for applications 11:45 p.m. on January 18, 2018. Media that have participated in previous activities and signed Memoranda with Open Media Hub will be considered first.
