As a film editor and storyteller surrounded by a world of changing technology, I was particularly interested in this project as to how the perception and experience of a physical, historical place rich in history can connect the viewer dramatically to enrich and change the experience from other established conventions. Combining new tools and having young filmmakers explore various disciplines through social media is an original step toward our ever-expanding world of social interaction."
"As I was invited to have a part in the mentorship and to have a meeting with the students, the mentors, and the group that eventually photographed and completed the original idea, my response was positive and enthusiastic mainly because of the use of storytelling with moving images of a film, or more films, for the purpose for which they have been conceived, was presenting some challenging language choices and ways of visualization. The Internet has expanded the utilization of the product of my profession, cinematography, but at the same time pushes for research in how to better utilize the potential of filmmaking if it is directed to that kind of audience, who will enjoy the message in a very specific situation.

Over the past 5 years, we have worked with over 350 participants from 30 countries, 15 institutional partners, various languages, cultures, and accents!
We have worked with many bright young individuals who have received prestigious recognition such as Forbes 30 Under 30, CES Innovation Awards, and other awards from the United Nations. Others include Olympic champions, nationally recognized influencers, and young founders of companies ranging from one to hundreds of employees.
From the outset, we knew who we wanted to work with.
We collaborate with teams and students driven by big ideas, young enthusiasts who are eager to learn something new.
Our students, like us, are creative individuals who are willing to venture outside of their comfort zone and explore uncertainty.
Our participants, including entrepreneurs and creatives, have launched careers, businesses, and professions.
MEDIARS believes in inclusion, multiculturalism, entrepreneurship, commitment, and growth through experiences.
If you're considering embarking on a growth journey, if you feel it's time to challenge yourself and expand your limits, this is the course for you.
Our advanced training program is not for everyone. We will challenge you to step out of your comfort zone and see things from a different perspective.
MEDIARS enhances employment opportunities by bridging the gap between education and the job market and entrepreneurship.
The course guides participants in the validation of their collective and individual start-up projects, even after the program, to create enterprises or work independently.
For other participants, the program provides the necessary skills and mindset to have a competitive edge in the innovation industry.
Our participants have exciting jobs at companies that promote innovation, such as Salesforce, IBM, Google, Facebook, Unilever, Novartis, and many others.
In today's increasingly globalized world, many choose to live, work, and study abroad (even if it's for a few months).
This trend appears to be a good thing: social science research shows that international experiences enhance creativity, reduce intergroup biases, and promote successful careers.

The program is conducted entirely in English. Therefore, we suggest having at least an intermediate level of English language knowledge.
All MEDIARS training activities, from internships, to courses, events, and coaching programs, are characterized by a learning-by-doing approach that immediately puts participants in a position to work on their professional projects.
The program is structured around workshops and lessons that will lead to the development of a portfolio project, in order to maximize the full-immersion training experience and develop the necessary skills to create effective and engaging video content for your brand or your clients, in particular:
Additionally, the course also includes a data analysis section to understand the impact of the video on brand perception and its marketing goals.
With over 10 years of experience in organizing international programs, for many of our participants it's their first time. A cultural orientation meeting is scheduled for the participants. We will also send you our Departure Guide.
The course takes place in Malta with coaches from M Accelerator in Los Angeles.
Digital tools and Artificial Intelligence (AI) are constantly evolving. The value of work, whether as a freelancer, consultant, or specialist within an agency, is evaluated based on the ability to keep up, improve, recognize client problems, and find smart solutions.
If we consider the distribution of the workforce, jobs based on skills (this category also includes the digital marketing expert) make up about 25% and are jobs that are often in high demand.
This type of work tends to become repetitive and, after a first phase, can be performed by operators with a lower-quality of skills. Just think of offshore agencies. In the coming years, given the evolution of Artificial Intelligence, these operators will have to readapt to new tasks.
We aim to train young people who aspire to a more creative job, which is difficult to be replaced by automatism or lower skills level workers. This workforce is referred to as "super-creatives."
The young people we target are the "super-creatives," meaning, all those who will work in strategy, and design, who will integrate skills with innovation, and who are able to identify problems and find solutions. This group of workers has typically a higher purchasing power salary.
This is a 4 weeks program with 100 hours.
