Volto Sábado | I’ll be back Saturday

Depois de uns dias muito ocupados, prometo que amanhã volto aos posts. Foram duas semanas fantásticas no Summer Institute 08, onde, para além de ter desenvolvido os meus conhecimentos, conheci pessoas muito interessantes e cheias de capacidades. Tão boas que nem me apetece voltar para casa… Amanhã tentarei fazer um resumo destes últimos dias e acima fica uma brincadeira que eu e a Joana Beleza fizemos para o nosso trabalho de grupo, numa tarde muito muito boa e divertida.

After some hectic days i promise i’l be back to posting tomorrow. These two weeks at Summer Institute 08 were great, and besides developing my knowledge, i met very able, interesting people. So great i really don’t want to go back home.

Tomorrow i’ll try to sum up these last few days, and above there’s a small video that me and Joana Beleza did for our group project, in one very very fun afternoon.

A caminho de Lisboa | Off to Lisbon

A partir desta segunda-feira, e durante duas semanas, vou estar em Lisboa para uma formação de Jornalismo Online promovida pela Universidade de Austin.O professor Rosental Alves vai ser o orientador, e pelo que vi do programa que ele enviou aos 12 escolhidos parece-me que vai ser mesmo muito bom.

Por isso, durante uns tempos vão haver menos posts, mas os que fizer estarão relacionados com o workshop, para partilhar com vocês o que vou fazendo e aprendendo.

Se estiverem pela capital, digam alguma coisa, há gente daqui que gostava de conhecer pessoalmente -havendo tempo- ou então enviem sugestões sobre o que se pode fazer em Lisboa na segunda quinzena de Junho, com um Campeonato Europeu de futebol pelo meio.

De qualquer forma, a única coisa que espero destas duas semanas é aprender muito e divertir-me mais. ;)

From next monday, and for about two weeks, i’ll be in Lisbon to attend to a Online Journalism Workshop, promoted by the UT – Austin. Professor Rosental Alves will be lecturing, and for what i’ve seen of the syllabus that he sent to the 12 chosen it seems to me that is going to be really great.

So, during the following days there will be fewer posts, and the ones i’ll write will be related with the workshop, to share with you what i’m learning and doing.

If by any chance you are around those parts, let me know, there are some of you that i’d like to meet in person – if i have the time – or send your suggestions on what can i do in Lisbon in the second fortnight of June, with a Euro Cup in between.

Anyway, the only thing i expect from these two weeks is to learn a lot and have even more fun. ;)

Syllabus:

O propósito deste workshop é preparar estudantes para trabalhar como jornalistas em sítios de notícias da Internet e/ou desenvolver actividades académicas relacionadas com o impacto das tecnologias digitais no jornalismo.

Durante este seminário, vamos estudar os efeitos da Revolução Digital sobre a prática e o consumo do jornalismo, a partir das experiências de diferentes países e comunidades. Entre esses efeitos, vamos examinar o surgimento e a evolução do jornalismo online; a busca de novas narrativas jornalísticas que aproveitem características da World Wide Web, como a hipertextualidade e a multimídia; fenômenos contemporâneos, como os blogs e as redes sociais; a transformação das audiências passivas da era industrial em redes ou comunidades ativas; o conteúdo gerado pelos usuários (o fenômeno Pro-Am); novas práticas como crowdsourcing e database journalism; a ruptura dos modelos de negócio da mídia tradicional e a tentativa de criar novos modelos; etc.

Summer Institute 2008 : Fui seleccionado | I’ve been selected

Eu falei disto há umas semanas, e aproveitei a oportunidade e inscrevi-me também. Acabei por ser um dos escolhidos para participar no workshop de Jornalismo Online (descrição abaixo). Isto significa que vou estar em Lisboa no próximo mês de Junho, a partir do dia 16 até dia 26. Se quiserem combinar alguma coisa digam.

Acima de tudo é uma oportunidade excelente de enriquecer a minha formação, num programa prestigiado. Ainda por cima é gratuito. Se foram também seleccionados ou conhecem alguém que foi, digam qualquer coisa.

I talked about this a couple of weeks ago and i applied for a placement too. I was one of the selected applicants to the Online Journalism workshop (description below). This means i’ll be in Lisbon next month from the 16th to the 26th. If you want to meet me there let me know.

Above all this is an excellent opportunity to learn more, in such a prestiged program. And it’s for free. If you were selected too or if you know someone who did, let me know.

Online Journalism Workshop

Through practical assignments, analysis of successful cases and specialized literature, this workshop will examine the transformations journalism currently faces in order to meet the Digital Revolution, particularly in what concerns the search for a multimedia language.

Rosental Alves

Alves began his academic career in the United States in March 1996, after 27 years as a professional journalist, including seven years as a journalism professor in Brazil. He moved to Austin from Rio de Janeiro, where he was the managing editor and member of the board of directors of Jornal do Brasil, one of the most important Brazilian newspapers. Alves worked for that paper for 23 years.

He was chosen in 1995 from approximately 200 candidates to be the first holder of the Knight Chair in International Journalism, created by a $1.5 million endowment from the James L. and John S. Knight Foundation. In 2002, Alves received a $2 million grant from the Knight Foundation to create the Knight Center for Journalism in the Americas, a four-year project to work in training programs with journalists from Latin America and the Caribbean. The Knight Center is based at the School of Journalism in Austin, but reaches thousands of journalists throughout the hemisphere.

For more than a decade, Alves was a foreign correspondent based in Spain, Argentina, Mexico and the United States, working for Jornal do Brasil. In 1991, he created the first online, real-time finance news service, the first of its kind in Brazil. And in 1994, Alves managed the launching of Jornal do Brasil’s online edition, making it the first Brazilian newspaper available on the Internet.

At the University of Texas at Austin, Alves has three basic areas for teaching and research: international reporting (emphasizing the work of foreign correspondents), journalism in Latin America (especially the struggle for a free press in the hemisphere), and Internet journalism (the creation of a new genre of journalism for the digital medium). He created the first class on online journalism at UT in the 1997-98 academic year. Alves has been a frequent speaker in conferences and has conducted numerous workshops in several countries to train journalists and journalism professors on the use of the new medium.

The Summer Institute 2008 is a unique event organized by the UT Austin|Portugal Program comprising workshops and talks that cover several areas of the Digital Media Program such as Cinema (fiction and documentary), Design, Music and Journalism.
Full program here.

Workshop Descriptions:

Collaborative Scriptwriting Workshop

A practical introduction to the “collaborative method” in scriptwriting. Over the course of the two weeks, the class will treat its members as a writing staff and, collectively, they will outline and work on writing the first act of multiple projects. Students will brainstorm the ideas together, and writers will be assigned particular scenes or acts to write.

Digital Documentary Workshop

In this short course students propose, produce and edit short videos documenting the City of Lisbon. The unifying theme for these short documentaries will be “hidden Lisbon.” In the process of the workshop participants will explore how film language, namely visuals, audio and editing, can be employed to achieve a desired affect.

Digital Hollywood Workshop

The “Digital Hollywood” workshop will present a macro-industrial perspective on the incorporation, innovation, and diffusion of digital technologies into the filmed entertainment industries’ production, distribution, and exhibition businesses. This workshop will assess the significance of digital technologies in terms of shifting business practices, revenue streams, digital aesthetics, and the increasing relevance of online markets.

Online Journalism Workshop

Through practical assignments, analysis of successful cases and specialized literature, this workshop will examine the transformations journalism currently faces in order to meet the Digital Revolution, particularly in what concerns the search for a multimedia language.

Creating Music and Audio for Film, Video and Games Workshop

This course will explore current technologies and techniques for the creation of music, audio and sound effects for film, video and games. It will be based primarily on the widely used Apple Logic Studio 8. Students will need to be comfortable with the Mac OS-X platform. However, no prior knowledge of Logic is required. The course will cover basic musical forms, looping and mixing, soft instrument plugins, synchronizing musical materials to video, acquiring and modifying audio effects files, advanced sound treatment using Logic plugins, game audio design, track layering, and surround mixing. Students will complete five short assignments and one longer project using video clips provided for the class or materials that the students may have.

The production facilities will include a suite of Intel iMac computers with Garage Band 4 and Logic Studio 8. Students will need to bring their own stereo headphones (1/8” stereo) for these workstations. The final project will be mixed on the teaching station using 5.1 surround audio.

Photorealistic 3D Graphics Rendering & Simulation Workshop

Photorealistic rendering assists problem solving in scientific, economic, instructional, entertainment, and artistic disciplines. This course surveys the uses of photorealistic 3D computer graphics which range from advertising campaigns to the modeling molecular structures, and delves into the process for creating such imagery. Students are introduced to 3DStudioMax and Mental Ray applications, but will be taught so that they can approach any type of 3D application.
