From the 19th to 21st June and from the 26th to 28th June 2017 EU-funded Project Open Media Hub is organising an In-Depth Broadcast training for 10 journalists and cameramen from Georgian media.
Telling a Human Story
Reporting on EU-Georgia Relations
The In-Depth Broadcast training class is a 6-day course, which will be carried out in 2 sessions, and will cover news production, editorial and filming skills – writing and editing. The course is designed to improve independent and objective reporting and to expand industry interest and skills in covering and illustrating complex stories. This workshop is aimed at producing stories; by putting into practice the skills set in real time for real output for the participants’ media outlets and sharing them on the OMH platform.
A special focus will be given to telling the human story, how to report on EU-Georgia relations; what are the challenges in raising the bilateral relations between Georgia and the EU. The stories and their angles will be discussed with the participants and selected ahead of the course. The aim is to produce appealing and informative visual stories.
The second aspect of the training will focus on a strand called ‘Being 20’ (1’30 minute). Developed and produced by the Open Media Hub, ‘Being 20’ is a series of short stories depicting the life and aspiration of the youth in the European Neighbourhood Countries.
The trainers Rob Parsons, Zurab Kodalashvili, Anthony Headley and Nino Zhizhilashvili will be leading this in-depth broadcast training.
