The ability to create short form videos is an increasingly sought after skill in the world of science journalism. But, in today’s crowded video landscape, how do you make informative, creative, high-quality work that really stands out?
In this workshop, we’ll watch examples of excellent short form science videos, talk about what makes writing for video different from any other medium, explore various tones and visual styles, and do an animation tutorial. Then, you’ll work with three science video producers, each with their own weekly shows on YouTube, to select a story, write a script, develop your voice, and storyboard your concept.
No previous video experience required.
Please bring a few short articles you’ve already written that you might want to rework into a video.
You will need something to write and edit scripts on, so laptops/tablets are suggested.
Requires advance online registration and $30.00 pre-payment.
