online subscription at http://tosmi.org

deadline: 30 June

organized by InterSpace Association, Sofia

The project aims at making series of trainings on Free and Open 
Source Software <http://www.fsf.org/licensing/essays/free-sw.html> 
multimedia tools that are not so well known, but can be used 
efficiently by professionals from the audiovisual production sector. 
Although in the last few years there have been many efforts and 
success stories about making open source software more popular for 
the end-users, professionals in certain areas still doubt the 
availability of good-quality, free of charge products to face their 
specific needs. This project is intended to reverse this tendency.

The target group of the project are young professionals working in 
the fields of 3D CGI, post-production, video editing, animation, 
advertising and special effects. Participation of professionals from 
the project's partner countries, as well as women professionals is 
particularly encouraged.

The trainings cover:

    * *Blender for professionals*. Blender is the open source software
      for 3D modeling, animation, rendering, post-production,
      interactive creation and playback;
    * *Cinelerra for professionals*. Cinelerra is a non-linear
      video/aidio editor.
    * Usage of free and open source software for recording and editing
      sound under GNU/Linux and other operating systems;
    * Usage of version-control and groupware tools for optimization of
      the production process;
    * Hardware and software optimization and rendering farm building
