Erasmus Internship Experience

Since I was a kid, I remember myself loving to travel all around the world, meeting new cultures, places, countries. Last summer 2014 I decided to take part in a University program called “Erasmus Placement”. It’s a program in which you can work in any European country you like and get paid.

The Golden Watch or just a mid Spring day in May?

It was  a mid Spring day in May when I saw the orange painted walls of Mediazone for the first time. Orange painted walls with black drawings like a midnight dream… “tv monitors” for hills, “film” rivers, “microphone” trees, “digital” sea, “battery” bees, “speaker” clouds and floating cities – creativity and imagination like the very water and sunlight needed to grow life; “cheers!”

Reach the top of tape and monitor hills  and E. and I go back into dreams of history . Talking about beta cam video formats, travel and mathematics: I am enthusiastic to learn another way to build my reality, I feel like a child. Walking down the hill I listen through the speakers a lab assistants voice; Nader’s voice and music, something like jazz words came up on my mind: “if it sounds good and feels good, then it is good!” At a  certain point I found Andreas shooting video everywhere.  I thought what interesting eyes! Let’s see. He notices all the details, and that is good to discover a little pleasure of  life too. Imagination and moving things move Hystrian’s hands flying around the blue sky in editing. Sometimes he seems he get lost in the digital world. I like the dreamer that way too.

Little Andreas looking all around tells  me Fabrizio where are we? I don’t know but with time and courage we will find the way to come out of this trip. Meanwhile Giota and Lucia finally find me and argue that they are too busy for play, and me, I stare as a child. But their smiling eyes are too big and full of energy so I understood they were joking with me. Continue reading

Michalis Michael – Unic & Mediazone Tv & Audio – Lab Assistant 2009 – 2011

Michalis Michael was a Lab Assistant who started in 2009. He remained with us until the end of his studies. Michalis is a great example of an Alumnus who has a great spirit, and his heart was always in the right place. He truly has a “knack” for communicating, and was always willing to learn and help. Mediazone was proud to assist in giving Michalis the edge by providing him with a “glowing” letter of recommendation and to act as the reference for his current employment at Breda University. Michalis never fails to visit us every time he is in town. We always say that the relationships we build with our students are for life, and coming back to Unic, Mediazone is like coming home.   Continuing luck to Michalis! Door is always open… Continue reading

At the heart of a table tennis player & coach


They are hand picked, highly trained and on many occasions multi talented; and when they graduate we are sorry to see them go. On the other hand we couldn’t be prouder!

Take Constantinos Christoudias for instance. He has been with us for just over 2 years. He was an exceptional assistant and an exceptional student. Little did we know that behind his warm “customer service” exterior smile, beat the heart of a true competitor. Constantinos is both a table tennis player and a coach. Continue reading

RED Epic? What is that?!

If 2 cameras are not enough for your production, try shooting with 50. Recently, I was watching a behind the scenes video of the new Hollywood film,  “The Hobbit”. The thing that amazed me was the fact that in order for the film to be shot, 48 RED epic cameras were used. I started asking myself  “Why RED?”, “What is it that makes these cameras  better than the rest, and why choose them ?” . And that is why I want to share with you a brief review of the RED epic cameras and leave you to decide for yourself if it’s worth  the price of 24 000$ !!! Continue reading
