Explainer video workshop during Wikimania Pre-Conference

Claudia Garád
Hi everyone,

are you looking for some interesting things to do during Wikimania Pre-Conference? Well, perhaps this is for you: on Thursday afternoon, we will be hosting a workshop for creating animated explainer videos for Wikimedia projects:
https://wikimania2015.wikimedia.org/wiki/Workshop_for_Explainer_Videos

Videos have become a popular format for the dissemination of information - especially short animated explainer videos which provide a quick overview over complex topics. The same principle applies to Wikipedia: videos can enrich exisiting content and provide an entertaining and easily comprehensible access to free knowledge. Together with experts from the simpleshow foundation Wikimedia Österreich offers workshops for Wikimedians which are designed to learn the tricks of the trade of screenwriting for explainer videos. In the context of this year’s Wikimania we are happy to host such a workshop for the international community.

Content of the workshop

  • Interested participants will learn the basic skills for creating plots of explainer videos: how to explain complex topics in a short and comprehensible way, how to work with cut-out animation, storyboard conception and visualization
  • The participants create and refine their scripts and storyboards together with the simpleshow foundation after the workshop
  • The realization and production of the finished storyboard will be done by the simpleshow foundation, the result will be published under the CC-BY-SA license on Wikimedia Commons
  • The screenwriters can use the videos for Wikipedia articles and other purposes

What do you need?

  • Interest in storytelling
  • A topic for an explainer video
  • No previous knowledge in screenwriting or video production necessary
