Capturing Meaning through Video Storytelling (In-Person)
Learn how to create meaningful video narratives without expensive equipment or prior experience. Some consider this a new golden age of image and video, as many of us carry more recording power on our cell phones than was available for much of the history of video journalism. We record public and private moments with the ease of a click. But how do we shape them into stories that communicate the meaning of our experiences? With hands-on training, we will discover how to develop narrative using storyboards and our video equipment, from the simplest phone to more complex video and DSLR cameras. No experience is necessary. Please bring your camera, a notebook, and a laptop or tablet if you have one.
This program is being offered IN-PERSON only. Masks are optional while in the building, but encouraged (especially for students who have not been vaccinated against Covid-19).
