Oikomedia helps you get in touch with people, stories, ideas.No matter where you are, Oikomedia is a place to share contacts, sources, projects and assignments: a virtual bureau to find colleagues, news and anything you need for a good story.Oikomedia is the answer to an increasing demand; as a direct consequence of the global financial crisis, media companies are cutting more and more on foreign correspondent offices, despite the fact that readers demand for news is exploding.
When Elina is not travelling with a crew, she writes stories. She got into storytelling as soon as she finished studying the Frenchy Law. Back then, as she thought that it was not enough, she moved northbound to continue on understanding the International and European rules in Belgium. While history was being written in the Mediterranean corner, she switched to media and moved once again into the wild to learn her craft by harnessing international media networks. She conceived Oikomedia as a process of better tracing the best source of information and make a meaning out of it.
On her free time she sits over a world map with a cup of tea, studying and marking media trends worldwide when she is not trying to understand Stavrogin’s confessions.
Gianluca MartellianoJournalist – Fixer
Roots in the old fashioned journalism, eyes to the future of the profession. At the beginning of the 2000’s, he has started to work as a reporter while at university, in dusty basement of a radio station in Bologna, Italy. There, he learnt how to survive with a wooden mixing console from the 70s and some mixtapes.
Then, in 2010, young, desperate and unemployed in Rome, he became a fixer, helping foreign journalist write and shoot stories and investigations about anything (usually bad) that could happen in Italy. There, he learnt that journalism means basically ‘talk to the right people’.
That’s why he created Oikomedia: a new way to make colleagues talk each other and share stories, ideas, projects and contacts. Something he would have liked to use before.
