ABC OPEN Free basic videomaking workshops – Armidale Library

Using your own smartphone, tablet, or camera and laptop learn how to script, shoot and edit a short video that you can publish online.

Where are you at sunset on a Sunday? Or dawn on a Wednesday? Perhaps you’re out fishing, bird watching, at a BBQ with mates, or renovating your home. How do you spend your summer days and nights? Make a 30 second video using a variety of shots that tells us “where you’ll find me”. It’s about one person, one place and one moment. Film yourself or someone else on your smartphone, camera or tablet. What are you doing there? Who with? How do you feel? Why?

In these 2 fast and easy free sessions learn the basics of video production so you can make your own Where you’ll find me videos and share them online.

Session 1, Saturday 14th February, 10am – 1pm: Camera and sound skills, identifying strong video subjects, planning your story and production shoot.

Session 2, Saturday 21st February, 10am – 1pm: Video editing skills, video file conversion and publishing online.
