The EU-funded OPEN Media Hub project is providing an online and free course on video and audio editing for journalists.
What happens when you have a great interview but the camera focus is a little bit soft or it’s over exposed? Or you have some fantastic natural sound but there is far too much background noise for it to be usable?
All the journalists have faced these types of issues at some point and although many of these issues are not completely fixable, the challenge is to mitigate them in the appropriate way, without it taking too long or being too complex a process.
This course has been designed with one aim in mind: To provide the journalists with the knowledge and tools to minimise some of these video and audio problems in an easy and efficient manner.
The OPEN Media Hub project, funded under the OPEN Neighbourhood Programme, aims at creating a virtual media hub spanning the EU’s two neighbourhood regions – south and east – in order to contribute to the development of independent media and to a more accurate presentation of EU policies, through the creation of a network of journalists. It provides skills to journalists and media managers through the fostering of professional networks, the provision of hands-on workshops, of journalist exchanges and support to audio-visual and online production.
