Organise your own
We encourage youth organisations, schools, NGO’s and art institutions to organise their own workshops so young people can create one-minute videos.
All the video’s produced and sent to us, will participate in our international competition, and have the chance of winning a weekend in Amsterdam to receive the Tommy Award.
A sample workshop:
– 15-20 youngsters
– two video artists and one coordinator
– five days script-writing, filming, editing
– two laptops, five cameras, two tripods
Results: 20 one-minute videos of broadcasting quality
Follow these steps to get started:
Ask yourself the following questions:
Who will coordinate and facilitate the workshop?
Where will the workshop take place?
Are there partners needed?
Will it be a local, national or international workshop?
How to reach the youngsters?
What are the costs of a workshop?
What are the technical needs?
What kind of facilities are required?
To think about:
Working method and approach
Non-formal education based on equal standing
Creative process and the final outcome are equally important
Improvisation, ad-hoc handling and flexibility
Intensive, time limitations
Assist youngsters developing skills
Send us the videos to be part of The One Minutes Jr. network and the competition
