“Editing Skills and Directing: How to Tell Human Stories”: Seminar for Nagorno Karabakh Displaced Media Workers

On May 31th, the Public Journalism Club organized a seminar titled “Editing Skills and Directing: How to Tell Human Stories” to empower forcibly displaced media workers from Artsakh (Nagorno-Karabakh). The seminar  was led by Arthur Parsyan, a leading specialist with over 20 years of experience and the author of numerous films and videos.

Eight media workers participated in seminar, many of whom currently work in various media outlets in Armenia. 

Ani Mangasaryan, who worked as an editor at Artsakh Public Radio, notes that such seminars are not only an opportunity to learn something new but also to meet new people in the field.

“Discussions and practical work are more important for me,” says Ani, hoping that the skills learned during the seminar will help her turn the last footage she shot in Artsakh into a film.

During the seminar, participants not only got acquainted with the techniques of editing (understanding different types and sizes of frames, sound editing, etc.) but also learned some subtleties on how to create engaging human stories. 

In addition to the theoretical part, the seminar will have a practical segment. Participants, with the mentoring support of Arthur Parsyan, about the lives of Artsakh Armenians in Armenia following the war and forced displacement.

*The seminar was conducted within the framework of the “Professional Media, Practitioners and Grassroots Joining Forces for Dialogue” project, implemented by Public Journalism Club with the financial assistance of the European Union. International Alert is the project Consortium lead.
