The theme of photo stories about Islam is now easier to pick up. In addition to the theme being quite universal, the subjects taken for the subject of the photo story are quite common because the majority of Indonesians are Muslims with various backgrounds. Both male and female students can have no difficulty assembling a story through the shutter and lens of a photo story.

“The growth of Islam in the archipelago is also significant, both in big cities and in villages, making it easier to take Islamic issues in photos story,” said Boy T. Harjanto, a photographer from EPA (European Press Agency) Photo, which became the main speaker in the Discussion and Photo Exhibition of Doc-Camp 2022 stories in collaboration with the Nadim Communication Center for Alternative Media Studies and Documentation UII and Klik18. Boy sees photo exhibitions with Islamic themes that are currently very easy to take because they are also abundant in variety besides being universal.

On this occasion, on September 20, 2022, Boy was appointed by the Doc-Camp 2022 committee to be the reviewer of 12 photographic works of photographers from UII students. Nizli Nailunni’mah the moderator of this evening’s discussions said, all photographers are here and share their experience of making the photo stories. Many of them face obstacles while taking pictures, particularly a refusal from the subject. According to Boy, from the photography aspect, the 7 themes of the photo stories from the early Doc-Camp participants had the opportunity to find momentum and photo events to be more flexible and explore photos more. “The 2019 Doc-Camp participants have quite a bit of time, so it is possible for the participants to produce better photo repetitions than the 2022 Doc-Camp participants,” said Boy judging from the photographic aspect.

Meanwhile, Doc-Camp 2022 participants experienced limited time, and the tight schedule of lectures and campus committees made it difficult for them to take photos again. Although the hunting period is also entering the exam holiday period, not every team has the opportunity to take photos again, so it is difficult to get better photos.

According to Boy, the photos from participants’ stories, in terms of taking photos, the basic technique of taking photos is quite good, “although there are still some technical errors, such as lack of focus and under and overexposure,” added Boy.

Dozens of participants attended this discussion. Both from the student community and clubs at UII to several photo communities and photo lovers from outside UII. In addition to discussions, a photo exhibition has also been held from 20-23 September 2022 with 12 photo themes and more than 150 photo frames exhibited at the UII Library with the Kimpulan Temple as the background. Visitors to the photo exhibition recorded more than 300 participants from inside and outside UII, such as Unriyo Yogyakarta, Fotka, Lens Club Sanata Dharma, Semarang student photo community, and others.

Tema foto cerita tentang Islam kini lebih mudah diangkat. Selain tema tersebut cukup universal, subjek yang diambil untuk
subjek foto cerita cukup banyak ditemui karena mayoritas warga Indonesia adalah muslim dengan beragam latar belakang. Baik mahasiswa, laki perempuan, bisa tak punya kesulitan merangkai cerita lewat rana dan lensa menjadi sebuah foto cerita.

“Pertumbuhan Islam di Nusantara juga signifikan baik yang terjadi di kota-kota besar ataupun di desa-desa membuat kemudahan mengambil isu Islam dalam foto cerita semakin tinggi,” kata Boy T. Harjanto, fotografer dari EPA (European Press Agency) Photo, yang menjadi pembicara utama dalam Diskusi dan Pameran Foto Cerita Doc-Camp 2022 hasil kerjasama Pusat Studi dan Dokumentasi Media Alternatif Nadim Komunikasi UII dan Klik18. Boy melihat pameran foto dengan mengangkat tema islam saat ini sangat mudah diambil karena selain universal juga ragamnya berlimpah.

Pada kesempatan ini, pada 20 September 2022, Boy didapuk oleh panitia Doc-Camp 2022, menjadi pembedah 12 karya foto cerita para fotografer dari mahasiswa se-UII. Menurut Boy, dari aspek fotografi, 7 tema foto cerita dari peserta Doc-Camp awal ini, punya kesempatan menemukan momentum dan peristiwa foto lebih fleksibel dan lebih bisa mengeksplorasi foto. “Peserta Doc-Camp 2019 punya waktu agak panjang, sehingga sangat memungkinkan peserta untuk melakukan produksi pengulangan foto yang lebih baik ketimbang peserta Doc-Camp 2022,” kata Boy menilai dari aspek fotografis.

Sedangkan peserta Doc-Camp 2022 mengalami keterbatasan waktu dan padatnya jadwal kuliah dan kepanitiaan kampus
mengakibatkan mereka kesulitan mengambil foto ulang. Meskipun sebenarnya masa hunting juga memasuki masa libur ujian, tak sepenuhnya tiap tim punya kesempatan untuk mengambil foto ulang sehingga sulit mendapatkan foto lebih baik.

Menurut Boy, foto-foto cerita para peserta ini, dari segi pengambilan foto, secara teknik dasar pengambilan foto sudah cukup baik, “meski masih ada beberapa kesalahan teknis, seperti kurang fokus dan ada yang under dan over exposure,” tambah Boy.

Acara Diskusi ini dihadiri oleh puluhan peserta. Baik dari komunitas mahasiswa dan klub di UII, hingga beberapa komunitas foto dan penikmat foto dari luar UII. Selain diskusi, pameran foto juga telah diadakan dari 20-23 September 2022 dengan 12 tema foto dan lebih dari 150 pigura foto yang dipamerkan di Perpustakaan UII yang berlatar Candi Kimpulan. Pengunjung pameran foto tercatat lebih dari 300 peserta baik dari dalam dan luar UII, misalnya dari Unriyo Yogyakarta, Fotka, Lens Club Sanata Dharma, Komunitas foto mahasiswa Semarang, dan lain-lain.

Pandemic The pandemic has changed work patterns. There have been many new challenges. Like what? Monthly discussions held by the UII Communications Nadim try to raise it and find answers to these questions. Starting from changing online media strategies, and looking for various strategies and content tricks to win over readers, even amidst the Coronavirus siege.

This time, Nadim’s discussion invited a resource person named Muhammad Diast Reyhan Rafif to become a discussion partner for students at UII Communications. Diast is an alumnus of the 2017 batch of UII Communication Studies. His final research in his thesis examined Editorial Management in Reporting on the Cancellation of the National Football League Competition. Several media are used as research objects. Among them are detik.com, and okezone.com. Bolasport.com, Jawapos.com.

According to Diast, several online media are quite responsive and creative in dealing with reporting amid a pandemic. “Detik.com, for example, raised the human interest side during the pandemic. Regarding salary uncertainty amidst competition uncertainty, also player activities during the pandemic, including news of league I and league 2 uncertainties,” said Diast revealing one of his research results on Tuesday, 15 February 2022.

Another second, another dotcom media, and the rest. Bolasport, said Diast, provides football travel content, in the form of a timeline or memorable moments. That timeline is tracked year by year. Apart from that, bolasport also covers supporter activities during the pandemic. Even though it seems ordinary, you can see creative efforts meandering amidst the lack of events that could be sources of writing due to the cancellation of the National Football League competition.

Different Srategies from different medias

It’s no different, Okezone from the MNC group media has another strategy. “Okezone.com has soccertainment. It is a rubric that reports on player activities when the leagues haven’t started, for example, player support, federation support, health support when a player or coach is exposed to corona,” said Diast, who also served as Chair of the Communication Editor’s Journalism Club. this. According to Diast, this rubric talks a lot about international football because it still attracts a lot of interest from readers.

If Legal publishes a lot of international sports news because it is liked by many readers, Jawapos focuses more on national sports news. For example, the news raised is about the activities of coaching players outside the field. Or also the theme of the player transfer market because there are many players abroad. This includes not forgetting to also cover PSSI’s steps to run the league.

Ifa Zulkurnaini, the moderator of the discussion, also asked if there was further research that could be done in the context of sports journalism. Narayana, UII Communication Lecturer, who was also present as a participant in the discussion said that there was still something that could be researched about sports journalism. Not only what Diast did, in football, but other research could also be carried out on how other sports journalism media cover amid a pandemic, especially for sports other than football. “Football can still go on, but what about basketball, badminton, and others? How can sports journalists and the media cover and survive during a pandemic? Maybe that’s what can be continued,” said Nara trying to argue in the middle of the discussion.

Pandemi membuat pola kerja berubah, Ada banyak tantangan baru. Seperti apa? Diskusi bulanan yang digelar Nadim Komunikasi UII mencoba mengangkatnya dan mencari jawab dari pertanyaan-pertanyaan itu. Mulai dari strategi media online yang berubah, mencari ragam strategi, dan trik konten untuk merebut pembaca, bahkan di tengah kepungan virus Corona.

Diskusi Nadim kali ini mengundang Narasumber bernama Muhammad Diast Reyhanrafif untuk menjadi mitra berdiskusi para mahasiswa di Komunikasi UII. Diast adalah alumni Ilmu Komunikasi UII angkatan 2017. Penelitian akhirnya dalam skripsi meneliti Manajemen Redaksional dalam Pemberitaan Pembatalan Kompetisi Liga Sepakbola Nasional. Ada beberapa media yang dijadikan objek riset. Di antaranya Detik.com, okezone.com. Bolasport.com, Jawapos.com.

Menurut Diast, beberapa media online cukup responsif dan kreatif mengatasi pemberitaan di tengah pandemi. “Detik.com misalnya, mereka mengangkat sisi human interest selama pandemi. Mengenai ketidakpastian gaji di tengah ketidakpastian kompetisisi, Juga kegiatan pemain selama pandemi, Termasuk juga berita ketidakpastian liga I dan liga 2,” kata Diast mengungkap salah satu hasil penelitiannya pada Selasa, 15 Februari 2022.

Lain Detik, lain media dotcom sisanya. Bolasport, kata Diast, memberikan sajian konten perjalanan sepakbola, Bentuknya timeline atau momen memorable. Timeline itu dilacak dari tahun ke tahun. Selain itu, bolasport juga meliput kegiatan supporter selama pandemi. Meski terkesan biasa, tapi terlihat upaya kreatif berkelok di tengah minimnya peristiwa yang bisa jadi sumber tulisan karena adanya pembatalan kompetisi Liga Sepakbola nasional.

Tak beda, Okezone dari grup MNC punya strategi lain. “Okezone.com memiliki soccertainment, Itu adalah rubrik yangmemberitakan kegiatan pemain saat liga-liga belum mulai, Misalnya dukungan pemain, dukungan federasi, dukukangan kesetahan saat ada pemaian atau pelatih terkena corona,” papar Diast yang juga pernah menjabat sebagi Ketua Klub Jurnalistik Redaksi Komunikasi ini. Menurut Diast, rubrik ini banyak bicara bola international karena masih bayak diminati pembaca.

Jika okezone banyak melansir berita olahraga internasional karena disukai pembaca banyak, Jawapos justru lebih banyak Fokus berita olahraga nasional. Misalnya berita yang diangkat adalah seputar aktifitas pemain pelatih di luar lapangan. Atau juga tema bursa transfer pemain karena banyak pemain di luar negeri. Termasuk tak lupa juga melakukan peliputan tentang langkah PSSI dalam upaya menjalankan liga.

Ifa Zulkurnaini, moderator diskusi juga sempat bertanya, apa ada lagi riset lanjutan yang bisa dilakukan dalam konteks jurnalisme olahraga ini. Narayana, Dosen Komunikasi UII, yang juga hadir sebagai peserta diskusi mengatakan, bahwa masih ada yang bisa diteliti berkaitan dengan jurnalisme olahraga. Tak hanya yang dilakukan Diast, di olahraga sepak bola, tapi juga bisa dilakukan riset lain bagaimana media-media jurnalisme olahraga lain meliput di tengah pandemi khususnya untuk olahraga selain sepak bola. “Sepak bola masih bisa jalan pertandingannya, tapi basket, badminton, dan lain-lain gimana? bagaimana jurnalis olahraga dan medianya meliput dan bertahan di tengah pandemi? mungkin itu ya yang bisa dilanjutkan,” kata Nara mencoba berpendapat di tengah diskusi.

Banyak mahasiswa yang mengira Pusat Studi dan Dokumentasi Media Alternatif (PSDMA) Nadim adalah perpustakaan. Tak heran karena PSDMA Nadim sementara ini, secara fisik, dipenuhi dengan buku-buku. Sebenarnya, banyak hal yang Nadim lakukan. Seperti namanya, pusat studi dan dokumentasi, Nadim melakukan studi dan dokumentasi seperti diskusi, penelitian, dan juga pengumpulan media-media alternatif. Ia adalah Pusat Studi dan Pusat dokumentasi khusus media alternatif.

Perkenalan dengan PSDMA Nadim ini menjadi topik ngobrol santai teatime International Program Communication Department Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII). Teatime ini mengundang Ifa Zulkurnaini, seorang staf sekaligus peneliti di Nadim. Teatime kali ini dipandu oleh Lani Diana, mahasiswa IPC UII Angkatan 2018, pada Jumat, 24 September 2021.

Ifa menjelaskan bahwa PSDMA Nadim digagas salah satunya oleh Muzayin Nazaruddin, Dosen Komunikasi UII (Dosen spesialis Media, Bencana, dan Semiotika) yang saat itu menjabat sebagai Kepala Laboratorium Ilmu Komunikasi UII. “Beliau ingin ada wadah buat mahasiswa yang ingin penelitian, pengabdian masyarakat, sharing pengetahuan, atau diskusi. Janggal kalau diwadahi di laboratorium, nggak nyambung. Jadi dibikinlah PSDMA Nadim ini di tahun 2008,” Jelas Ifa.

Mengenai koleksi di PSDMA Nadim, tidak hanya buku yang dimilki, PSDMA Nadim lebih mengedepankan media alternatif, artinya bukan media yang banyak umum ditemui. Nama NADIM sendiri diambil dari nama seorang bibliografer ribuan manusrkrip di Bagdad bernama Ibn Al Nadim yang hidup pada tahun 990an. Selain mengumpulkan, ia juga membaca dan mengkatalogisasinya. Begitupun PSDMA Nadim, tidak sebatas buku saja yang dimiliki, tapi juga film, pamfet, tabloid, majalah, dan jurnal. “Kalau teman-teman pengin nonton film-film lama, tapi nggak bisa ke bioskop, bisa pinjam di Nadim,” kata Ifa saat cerita tentang koleksi Nadim yang beberapa bisa dipinjam secara online.

Selain mengkoleksi beberapa media alternatif, nadim punya kegiatan yang bisa diikuti oleh siapapun baik mahasiswa ataupun umum yakni diskusi yang dilakukan satu hingga dua kali sebulan. “Tiap bulan diisi oleh mahasiswa atau dosen baik dari UII maupun universitas lain.”

Many students think that the Nadim Center for Alternative Media Studies and Documentation (PSDMA) is a library. It’s no wonder that Nadim’s PSDMA is physically filled with books. Many things Nadim did. As the name suggests, a center for studies and documentation, Nadim conducts studies and documentation such as discussions, research, and alternative media collection. It is a Center for Studies and Documentation Center specialized in alternative media.

This introduction to PSDMA Nadim became a topic of casual chat at the International Program Communication Department, Universitas Islam Indonesia (UII). This teatime invited Ifa Zulkurnaini, a staff member and researcher at Nadim. The teatime was hosted by Lani Diana, a 2018 IPC UII student, on Friday, September 24, 2021.

Ifa explained that the PSDMA Nadim was initiated by one of them by Muzayin Nazaruddin, a UII Communications Lecturer (Lecturer specialist in Media, Disasters, and Semiotics) who at that time served as Head of the UII Communication Science Laboratory. “He wants a forum for students who want to do research, community service, share knowledge, or discuss. It’s odd if it’s accommodated in the laboratory, it doesn’t connect. So PSDMA Nadim was made in 2008,” Ifa explained.

Regarding the collection at PSDMA Nadim, it is not only owned books; PSDMA Nadim prioritizes alternative media, meaning that it is not media that is commonly found. NADIM itself is taken from a bibliographer of thousands of manuscripts in Baghdad named Ibn Al Nadim, who lived in the 990s. Apart from collecting, he also reads and catalogs them. Likewise, PSDMA Nadim has books and films, pamphlets, tabloids, magazines, and journals. “If you want to watch old films, but you can’t go to the cinema, you can borrow them from Nadim,” said Ifa when telling stories about Nadim’s collection, some of which can be borrowed online.

In addition to collecting several alternative media, Nadim has activities that anyone can follow, whether students or the general public, namely discussions held once or twice a month. “Every month, students or lecturers from UII and other universities fill it.”

On January 4, 1946, a secret carriage group containing Soekarno and his friends arrived at Tugu Train Station, Yogyakarta. Their arrival marked the move of the capital from Jakarta which had been occupied by Allied forces from NICA (Nederlandsch Indië Civiele Administratie) to Yogyakarta.

The Indonesian government moved several Indonesian Ministries to Yogyakarta, including the Ministry of Information, which was then followed by the Indonesian Film Agency (BFI). The transfer of the two institutions prompted artists and republican sympathizers to also move to Yogyakarta. This incident made Yogyakarta at that time not only the center of Indonesian government, but also the center of arts and cinema in Indonesia.

Four Key Actors

“There are four important actors in Yogyakarta as the capital of Indonesian films: the Indonesian Film Agency, the Ministry of Information, Mataram Entertainment, and Kino Drama Atelier,” said Dyna Herlina Suwarto on Saturday, April 24, 2021. Dyna speaks in the discussion entitled Yogyakarta as the Capital City of Indonesia’s Film. This webinar is held by the collaboration of the PSDMA Nadim and KNSK. PSDMA Nadim is stands for Center for Alternative Media Studies and Documentation (PSDMA) Nadim Department of Communications UII. KNSK is stands for National Consortium for History of Communication (KNSK).

The Speaker who is familiarly called Dyna is a lecturer in the Communication Department at Yogyakarta State University. She is also founder of Rumah Sinema, and NGO who is focused on youth and media literacy. She is also active in the Indonesian Film Reviewers Association (KAFEIN). Currently, Dyna is undertaking doctoral studies in Film and Television Studies, University of Nottingham.

Dyna stated that Yogyakarta in 1946-1949 could be called the media capital, because Yogyakarta was considered a safe place that allowed economic, knowledge, cultural and political interactions. Creative actors from various parts of Indonesia also interact with each other and expand local, national and international networks. Finally, the relatively stable conditions in Yogyakarta allow for capital accumulation, market expansion and distribution systems.

Media Capital

When the media capital discussed by Michael Curtin was initiated by the private sector, Yogyakarta as the media capital was actually owned by the state as the main actor.

“In modern media capital , as mentioned by Curtin, the objective is financial accumulation. Meanwhile at that time in Jogja the main objective of media or films produced at that time was politics. Recognition of Indonesia’s independence and sovereignty as well as the accumulated knowledge of the film production industry itself,” said Dyna who also active in the Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival (JAFF).

There are several films that are important to discuss in the Yogyakarta era from 1946 to 1949. One of the documentary film produced by the Indonesian Film Agency is Indonesia Fight for Freedom. This film was brought to the United Nations to gain recognition of Indonesian sovereignity. Apart from films, the establishment of film academies Cinedrama Institute and Kino Drama Atelier is also significant. These film academies has also become a milestone in the development of film in Indonesia.

Although in the end the Dutch attacked Yogyakarta on December 19th, 1948 and brought the film to a halt at that time, this era has become an interesting piece of film history in Indonesia.

Pada tanggal 4 Januari 1946, rombongan gerbong rahasia berisikan Soekarno dan kawan-kawan tiba di Stasiun Tugu, Yogyakarta. Kedatangan mereka menandai perpindahan ibu kota dari Jakarta yang telah diduduki oleh pasukan Sekutu dari NICA (Nederlandsch Indië Civiele Administratie) ke Yogyakarta.

Pemerintah RI memindahkan beberapa Kementerian RI ke Yogyakarta, di antaranya adalah Kementerian Penerangan yang kemudian diikuti oleh Badan Film Indonesia (BFI). Perpindahan kedua institusi tersebut membuat para seniman dan simpatisan republik turut pindah ke Yogyakarta. Peristiwa ini membuat Yogyakarta pada waktu itu tidak sekadar pusat pemerintahan Indonesia, melainkan menjadi pusat kesenian dan perfilman di Indonesia pula.

Empat Aktor Perfilman Indonesia Awal

“Terdapat empat aktor penting dalam Yogyakarta sebagai Ibu kota Film Indonesia: Badan Film Indonesia, Kementerian Penerangan, Stitchting Hiburan Mataram, dan Kino Drama Atelier,” ujar Dyna Herlina Suwarto, pembicara dalam diskusi dengan judul “Yogyakarta sebagai Ibu kota Film Indonesia” yang diadakan oleh kolaborasi Pusat Studi dan Dokumentasi Media Alternatif (PSDMA) Nadim Komunikasi UII dengan Konsorsium Nasional Sejarah Komunikasi (KNSK) pada Sabtu, 24 April 2021.

Perempuan yang akrab disapa Dyna ini merupakan Dosen Ilmu Komunikasi Universitas Negeri Yogyakarta, pendiri Rumah Sinema, serta aktif di Jogja-NETPAC Asian Film Festival (JAFF). Ia juga aktif dalam Asosiasi Pengkaji Film Indonesia (KAFEIN). Saat ini, Dyna sedang menjalankan studi doktoral di Film and Television Studies, University of Nottingham.

Dyna menyebutkan bahwa Yogyakarta pada tahun 1946-1949 dapat disebut sebagai media capital (ibu kota media), karena Yogyakarta dinilai sebagai tempat yang aman yang memungkinkan terjadinya interaksi ekonomi, pengetahuan, budaya dan politik. Aktor kreatif dari berbagai wilayah Indonesia juga saling berinteraksi serta memperluas jaringan kerja lokal, nasional, dan internasional.  Terakhir, kondisi Yogyakarta yang relatif stabil memungkinkan terjadinya akumulasi modal, perluasan pasar, dan sistem distribusi.

Ketika ibu kota media yang dibahas oleh Michael Curtin diinisiasi oleh swasta, Yogyakarta sebagai media capital justru dimiliki negara sebagai aktor utamanya.

“Kalau dalam modern media capital yang disebutkan Curtin tujuannya adalah akumulasi finansial, sedangkan waktu itu di Jogja tujuan utama media atau film yang diproduksi waktu itu adalah politik. Pengakuan terhadap kemerdekaan dan kedaulatan Indonesia serta akumulasi pengetahuan industri produksi film itu sendiri,” ujar Dyna.

Terdapat beberapa film yang penting untuk dibahas di era Yogyakarta 1946-1949, salah satunya adalah film dokumenter produksi Badan Film Indonesia “Indonesia Fight for Freedom” yang dibawa ke PBB untuk mendapatkan pengakuan kedaulatan Republik Indonesia. Selain film, pendirian akademi film “Cinedrama Institute” dan “Kino Drama Atelier” juga menjadi tonggak perkembangan film di Indonesia.

Walaupun pada akhirnya Belanda menyerang Yogyakarta pada tanggal 19 Desember 1948 dan membuat perkembangan film pada saat itu terhenti, namun era tersebut telah menjadi potongan menarik sejarah perfilman di Indonesia.
