The Project

This project “Cinema Paradiso” aims to make video-making skills accessible to everyone by providing practical training in creating powerful content.

It’s also an opportunity to learn how to produce excellent videos without spending a lot of money, covering everything from generating ideas to editing the final product.

No previous experience is required – just bring your enthusiasm and be prepared to make a difference with your videos.

The equipment 

It is important to bring your own equipment. Using tools they are already familiar with can significantly enhance their learning experience and the overall effectiveness of the training course.

  • Smartphone, Video or Photo Camera with filming function
  • Memory storage or external hard drive, if needed by their device
  • Laptop with enough space (at least one per national team)
  • Media gadgets and props: gimbals, tripods, microphones, lights etc.
  • Chargers, card-readers, cables etc.

In particular this approach allows participants to engage directly with their own equipment, mastering the creation of video productions using tools they’ll continue to use in their community.

The requirements

The association is looking for participants who are either people who work with young people (like youth workers, teachers, trainers) or young people who don’t have a job right now.

The requirements are:

  1. They should be at least 18 years old
  2. Able to learn in a mix of cultures using English
  3. Interested in making videos
  4. Excited to be involved in the whole project, from getting ready to sharing what they’ve learned
  5. Ready to use what they’ve learned afterwards, like making a video for the organization that sent them


The Costs

The project is fully funded by the Erasmus+ programme, which is why the selected participants do not have any costs to face.

Participants will receive a refund for the return trip, food, accommodation for the duration of the course.

Participants will stay at El Congreso, a hostel in the city center. They’ll be in double or triple rooms with bedding and towels provided. Most meals will be at the hostel, and activities will be at the Youth Center of the town, just a 2-minute walk from the accommodation.
