The chosen representatives of Starkmacher e.V., Viki Bock and Yannik Seelmann, took part in an international Media-Project „Breaking Rays“ close to Rome in July 2017.
Twenty-two youngsters from all over the world came together to participate in a professional training regarding communication, audiovisual production and storytelling.

A week long experts gave the participants input and led workshops regarding areas, such as, journalism, movie-production and sound-production, script and directing, and media relations in social networks.
The techniques of Storytelling were hereby strongly emphasized. Methods used in Storytelling are, for example, interviews with chosen people.
The technique of Storytelling conveys certain facts of a story through people.  This technique enables the spectator to build up a stronger emotional bond with the acting figures, hence the imparting of content goes beyond a mere reproduction of facts. Therefore, a new dimension is opened up to the spectator, as the possibility to sink into the reality of a different person is given. Consequently, the spectator absorbs considerably much more than pure knowledge of facts.

Now, after the seminar is completed it is the participants task to investigate, create, and produce their own first pieces in their home countries. Those will then later be added to an international news-magazine of the Focolar Movement.

In January 2018 the next step of the project takes participants to Brasil, where they will report about different social projects. Furthermore there participants will have the positivity to be part of an international youth festival which will take place in Manila in Summer 2018. This festival will be broadcasted world wide through a livestream technique.
