An Excellent Free Online Course – Starting Soon!

A massive open online course (MOOC /mk/) is an online course aimed at unlimited participation and open access via the web. I warmly recommend to all CCIVS members who want to improve their communication competencies to join the Exploring Filmmaking MOOC. If you participated in the Online and Residential Media Training by Egyesek in Hungary, you will especially benefit from this opportunity. The course kicks off on 29 June 2015 and lasts 6 weeks.

Learn from award-winning filmmakers about how films get from script to screen with this course from the NFTS and BFI Film Academy! Join here!

Imagewize – Collection of Resources

As we are heading towards the closing of this amazing media training, I want to share some of the resources we have been using in a structured way. Below are four collections of links.


The first one is a collection of videos that model the current practices of web video. It includes some classics from the business world, some of my own work and a wide range of examples (excellent, good, mediocre, not so good) that can be analyzed before producing a new video.


The second one is a collection of texts, articles, booklets, videos that are interesting food for thought. If you don’t want to re-invent the wheel, you can read into the current landscape of practices. The collection goes from TED talks to videos that reveal how YouTube offers you which videos to watch next.


The third collection is a very random attempt at gathering tutorials that I found useful. Your own list may be more valuable here: you can find wonderful video and film tutorials online. This lists reveals some of these, such as this gem on editing.


And finally, three websites for copyright free music. Best practice is always to make your own music, even if it’s simple. If you don’t have the time or people to do it, you can always combine sounds from this website to build something fun!

Online Media Training Opportunity

Dear Friends,

I am writing this post to invite you to join the Online Training of the CCIVS residential media training. My name is Miki Ambrozy, I am filmmaker and media educator. We are currently working with the Secretariat and Egyesek Youth Association (HU) to bring you a high-quality media training, both on- and offline.

The Online Training is free and you can join it by signing up here. It is an essential step to a successful face-to-face training, because we will cover the very basics of media and communication.
