TOSMI 2008


gsoc-08001.jpgFrom Ben Hodges: "I'm just writing to help spread the word about this year's Trainings on Open Source Multimedia Instruments or TOSMI. TOSMI is a part of MEDIA, the European Union's support programme for the European audiovisual industry and is designed to introduce media professionals to the benefits and possibilities of an open source pipeline in audio-video production.

Last year the trainings included general Blender techniques, compositing, and post production. This year there are three separate weeks of training or modules. Two of these will focus on Blender, the first with a general focus on blender and the last with an emphasis on advanced Blender techniques, Python scripting, physics simulation, and external renderers. The second module is about distributing media content on line and does not involve blender."

TOSMI 08 is currently accepting applications from the European Union and Norway, Iceland, Switzerland and Lichtenstein. The target group are professionals working in the fields of 3D CGI, post-production, video editing, animation, advertising and those simply interested in improving their knowledge of blender. To apply and for more information, please see the project's website or contact info[at]

Dates and places: 1st module - 25-30 May 2008, Thessaloniki, Greece.

2nd module- 2-7 June 2008, Sofia, Bulgaria.

3rd module - 9-14 June 2008, Sofia, Bulgaria.

Each module costs 1000 Euro, and it is 800 Euro if you sign in for more than one module. There are also scholarships available for the half of the participants. The fee or the scholarship includes the payment for the accommodation, a lunch every day, the tax for the course and coffee breaks during the sessions.

Deadline - 10 April 2008.

TOSMI is organized by Interspace, a New Media Art Centre, based in Sofia, Bulgaria. InterSpace was founded in 1998 as a non-profit association of professional artists, informatics engineers, do-it-yourself media makers.
