Video for the Web
Science journalists increasingly need to tell stories using multiple media. This daylong workshop will provide hands-on experience in acquiring quality video footage and in editing it for the Web. You’ll learn DSLR camera techniques and basic video editing. You may bring your own video-capable digital camera and existing video clips you’d like to rework into a finished project. Or use one of the School of Communication’s DSLR camera kits so that you can acquire some video during the day and practice editing it.
What you’ll learn:
• Story structure and character
• Basics of composition and lighting
• Scripting a story from interviews
• Audio and video DSLR techniques
• Editing tools and techniques
The class will be taught in a computer lab at the NAU School of Communication. $60; pre-registration required.
