Home / Projects / Adult / Performers Go Online – Performing artists learn how to create audiovisual material from their home and promote it online during the pandemic

Objectives

  • To overcome the lack of basics on filmmaking and digital marketing skills of performing artists;
  • To help performing artists keep being professionally active from their homes, even under the strictest lockdown conditions;
  • To provide the basics of film equipment, lighting design, sound recording, video editing and storytelling while at the same time taking into account the limitations of a filmmaker in a quarantine setting;
  • To develop a set of methods, techniques and tips on how to properly advertise an audiovisual creation and how to successfully interact with audience and potential buyers.

Target groups: performing artists of any kind (e.g. actors, singers, dancers etc), especially those with lower filmmaking and promotional skills. Stakeholders among filmmaking professionals, digital marketing specialists, commercial companies, NGOs, schools, cultural institutions, film festivals and any establishment that is interested in using homemade films for promotional, educational or artistic reasons.

  • Organisation of 4 webinars addressed to the course participants to present the e-course, answer questions and guide participants, team building and engagement.
  • Development of the Promoting Digitally E-learning Course, including information about social media and YouTube promotion, pitching of content to cultural institutions, tips on how to create a promotional short in a “homemade” style, and about platforms where the content can be exhibited.
  • Launch of a 40-hour piloting delivered over 3 months to the same 30 participants per partner country (France, Spain, Greece, Germany and Italy), facilitated by trainers who are experts in filmmaking and digital marketing.
