FILM IT! gathered youth workers from Bulgaria, Cyprus, Italy, Latvia, Macedonia, Portugal, Slovenia and Spain.
The main aim of the training was: “To develop the video-making and marketing competences of youth workers.” In able to reach this purpose, we set the following objectives:
• Increase video-making and marketing competencies, among participants of the project
• Gain basic knowledge on modern programs and platforms supporting video-making, promotion and dissemination as well as the basic rules of copyrights, creative commons etc., among participants of the project.
• Increase willingness to make a positive change in their communities and develop empathy towards people with fewer opportunities, among participants of this training course
From the training course participants developed more confidence in digital skills, whilst learning new ones that will stay with them long after the project has finished.
During the project's major activity, participants worked in collaboration with 6 charities and NGOs local to Bacoli. Where they took the knowledge and skills they had learnt in earlier sessions to produce promotional videos for the organisations.
