This is a practical, two-day hands-on class that will introduce you to the use of digital video cameras, audio equipment and the editing software involved in the process of creating your own short films.On day one you will hear about the 5 stages of do-it-yourself video production, including: Video Strategy, Pre-Production, Production (shooting the video), Post-Production (editing), and Sharing the video. You will then be divided up into small groups of 2-3. Each group will be guided in shooting their own short video of an activity at the BARN. You may use your own equipment and/or the new equipment recently purchased by the BARN.
On day two you will work with your small group to put your video together, including: importing the media shot on day one, editing, and fine-tuning visuals and sound. Day two will end with you showing your video to the other small groups and discussing next steps.
Video cameras will be provided, but feel free to bring your own cameras or smart phones. You will be required to bring a 32 Gigabyte SD card for video recording.
