Filip participated in the August 2013 MediaStorm Methodology Workshop. He had the following to say about his experience:


During an intense week, Brian and his team opened up their world for us, and it was a riveting experience. The balance between cutting-edge technical know-how, 'this is why we do what we do' and 'this is what we are still trying to figure out' was well thought out and highly instructive. I also tremendously enjoyed getting to know my impressive fellow participants. All of them brought their own unique perspective to the table, and our group discussions were lively and thought-provoking.

As visual journalists we are all grappling with the same issues, and I walked away from the workshop with a better understanding of what it will take for us to succeed.
