 Migrant Voice - Glasgow Media Lab

On Tuesday 19 May, 3-5.30pm, Migrant Voice is organising a free Media Lab training workshop online. The programme will include two sessions led by media professionals.

Sessions include:

Structure and edit your videos to strengthen the message: In this workshop, we will look at the practical steps needed to begin editing a short film or video clip. We will also discuss the theory behind the choices you can make as an editor.

How to make a photo reportage with your smartphone: In this workshop you will learn the key rules to tell a compelling story through pictures. You will also learn how to make the most of your smartphone, to take better looking photos. 

Scots and new Scots from all over the world - asylum seekers, refugees, and other migrants living in Scotland - join us online to learn media skills that will make your voices heard.

Time: 3pm – 5:30pm
