Wideo

Wideo is an online platform providing the users with a way to create, edit and share their videos for free. The service is web-based so the only requirement is a browser. Users can choose (or upload) the images, fonts, animations, videos and audios. By uploading one’s own audio it is possible to make videos with voiceover explanations.
The system is currently in Beta version.

PrestoSpace - Digital Preservation of audio/visual material

PrestoSpace (http://www.prestospace.org/project/index.en.html) is an EU project which aims to enable any European archive owner, from small collections to the largest, to manage an autonomous and realistic patrimonial policy, including preservation and exploitation of digital assets, in order to bring together industry, research institutes and stakeholders at European level to provide products and services for bringing effective automated preservation and access to Europe’s diverse audiovisual collections.

The outcome of the project is "Digital Preservation of audio/visual material", a website for archive owners, academics and the public alike, which provides a first point-of-call for information on the migration and digital preservation of audio/visual works. The site is a repository of the information and experience gained in the PrestoSpace project. You can find information ranging from the tutorial to the academic on planning and executing a digital preservation project and the technologies and processes involved. You will also find training videos, management tools and links to online resources and events in the field of digital preservation.

The Freesound Project

The Freesound Project is a collaborative database of Creative Commons licensed sounds. Freesound focusses only on sound, not songs.
The Freesound Project aims to create a huge collaborative database of audio snippets, samples, recordings, bleeps, ... released under the Creative Commons Sampling Plus License. The Freesound Project provides new and interesting ways of accessing these samples, allowing users to
• browse the sounds in new ways using keywords, a "sounds-like" type of browsing and more
• up and download sounds to and from the database, under the same creative commons license
• interact with fellow sound-artists
The project also aims to create an open database of sounds that can also be used for scientific research.

Digital Storytelling Cookbook

"In all communities, in all cultures, stories evolve from the culinary experience. Making media, like making a meal, requires guidance, learning from our friends through the sharing of recipes and from those who spend their professional lives in the kitchen. We have helped over 10,000 people mine stories from their lives and personal media archives. Our cookbook shares our experience, some recipes and some humour to help you get started with your own storytelling experience.
