Circom Regional / MTVA Mojochallenge Recap


I’m just back from a fantastic week in Budapest where I led the beginners training course of the Circom Regional / MTVA Mojochallenge. I was joined by some of the best mojo trainers in Europe, John Inge Johansen from NRK Norway, Guillaume Kuster from France Television, Darko Flajpan and Dado Pokec from HRT Croatia, Tibor Kormany from MTVA Hungary.

A total of 20 journalists drawn from stations and countries across Europe came to participate in the challenge. 10 beginners went through a very intensive 3 day mojo masterclass and 10 advanced participants (who had previously completed mojo training) were led through advanced editorial and storytelling by Karol Cioma, Training Manager with Circom Regional and Jane French from BBC.

After the three days training on shooting and editing with the iPhone/iPad, each Mojo was expected to find a story, shoot it within a day and edit it the following day. Stories could be up to 4 mins in duration. Here are the final stories from the beginners group:

and here are the stories from the Advanced group:

Tibor and Dado worked away on a behind the scenes video of the event and I think it really captures the spirit of the Mojochallenge.

Thanks to the fantastic participants and trainers team for a truly wonderful experience.
