Video accounts for 50% of all Internet traffic and mobile video is set to explode. When you think of how easy it is to watch video on a smart phone or how beautiful video looks on an iPad, it’s no wonder that everyone wants more visual content on their screens. As a multiplatform journalist or communicator, it helps your job prospects if you know how to tell a story in more than one medium.
Over two weekends, this popular workshop teaches how to produce short, focused, non-narrated stories that work best for online viewing. We’ll talk about finding strong characters, structuring stories, interviewing for a non-narrated piece, capturing compelling visual sequences and more.
Students will leave the class with well-practiced new skills
and a 1-minute edited video around an "Object of Meaning."
The mantra for the class will be “Show, don’t Tell!”
Students must bring a digital video camera that records on a card or a smart phone that records video, and a tripod. An audio recorder is optional.
Students must bring to class an object of meaning
and be ready to be interviewed on camera about that object.
Q: What is an "object of meaning?"
A: An object of meaning is an object that you can bring to class that has deep personal significance and hopefully a story too. It must be bigger than a ring but smaller than a breadbox. It can not be currently alive.
Prior to the class, students must watch the Adobe Premiere free “Essentials for Beginners” tutorials at https://helpx.adobe.com/premiere-pro/tutorials.html
