Dear all,

For those interested, I have just published an improved version (with
titles and subtitles) of the "video report" presented at the WSIS
workshop "Community networks: How the unconnected connect themselves":


More is coming on the more recent Sarantaporo conference and "CN
Encounter #1" between Sarantaporo.gr and NYCMesh. Only a few photos are
available at the end of the event's page:


P.S. The editing process took more time than expected but I have now
finalized my "setup" and here are some draft "guidelines for video
reports" for non-experts like me.

My suggested "filming" strategy:

- Take a few long interviews of the main actors of an event using a tripod
- Take short clips during the event of short duration 20s-1min, with the
camera at hand (inform people at the beginning that you are filming and
don't hesitate to go "close" to the action)
- Overlay the interviews with related short scenes from the events that
match what is being said in the interview

As for the (free) software required, after a lot of researching I
concluded to the following (I am using ubuntu):

- kdenlive for editing: https://kdenlive.org/en/
- aegisub for subtitles: http://www.aegisub.org/
- handbrake for hardcoding the subtitles with the video:
