Verona (Agenzia Fides) - A multimedia training Course will be held in Verona on 17 and 18 June 2022 aimed at communicators, missionary pastoral workers and teams of Diocesan Missionary Centers or missionary institutes, to all interested pastoral workers. As reported to Agenzia Fides, the course is part of a training course dedicated to communication and promoted by the "Fondazione Missio" (The national direction of the Pontifical Mission Societies in Italy) in the CUM training center in Verona.
The course intends to propose practical solutions to communicators, missionary institutes and associations to create short videos to be used in missionary animation and evangelization activities. The course has an operational character: from the images that each participant will bring or from those provided by the organization, one will learn how to better manage videos, sounds, interviews. For participants it is recommended to have a laptop with an editing program installed and a tool (camera, video camera or even smartphone) with which images or short videos were made. Organized in collaboration with "Luci nel Mondo", which has long been involved in production and training in the multimedia missionary field, the course includes meetings with Anna Pozzi, journalist of the PIME magazine "Mondo e Missione", on "Communicating today the mission, between insights and news" and sessions on "How to create a video. How to make a video. Production and editing. The importance of the storyboard". Lastly, there will be talk about "How to manage a video on social media". (PA) (Agenzia Fides, 27/5/2022)
