The Minichronicle method has been developed by Masja de Roy. She has been using videos and films as a self-development tool for more than 20 years. She teaches none- professional filmmakers how to use video in their work to connect with their audience. Her mission is to help people in a vulnerable position to be able to participate in the society. This is what she is doing in her”media bureau for participation”: CIMPA-T.
