Cukru and the non-profit organization Bronco are Slovak partners of the international project New Era, New Adventure. The authors of the concept believe that non-profit organizations are behind tremendous initiatives and projects which have a significant social impact, but the resources and the space to communicate these activities are often limited. Our task was to create a program for Slovak NGOs, with parallel trainings taking place in Hungary, Czechia and Poland.
The program led by three lecturers was focused on both theory and practice. Ivan Ježík (Voices) talked about storytelling and presenting in front of an audience. Martina Slováková (Cukru) prepared lectures on the history of video, its genres and the whole creative process – ranging from the initial assignment to the final publication on social media. Jozef Pajerský (Cukru) led a practical workshop on camerawork, which covered setting up the sound, processing the material and editing.
