Join the Learning Technologies Group for the newest series of workshops held at the UCSF Library. Digital Video Workshops Shoot Like a Pro and Edit Like a Pro are great for any faculty, students or staff interested in learning more about the digital video filmmaking process from filming to distribution.Below are descriptions and upcoming dates for both workshops:
Shoot Like a Pro:
Shooting a video is something that anyone can do, but it takes practice to produce a quality product. In this workshop, we will introduce you to the Learning Technologies Group’s video equipment, discuss best practices for planning and shooting effective video, and then practice those techniques with a hands-on exercise. At the end of the workshop, participants will know how to set up for an interview, frame their subject, light the scene, and capture clean audio.
- Friday, November 16, 9-11:30am, UCSF Library
Edit Like a Pro:
Editing digital video is becoming more and more commonplace, but it does not mean that everyone does it correctly. In this hands-on workshop, we will cover editing software, terminology, conventions and distribution options pertaining to digital video. At the end of the workshop, participants will be able to import raw footage from a camcorder; organize video files; identify common file types; apply transitions, titles, and effects; and export, compress and distribute the final product digitally using iMovie. Our “Digital Video: Shoot Like a Pro” workshop is a recommended but not required prerequisite.
If you are interested in scheduling a workshop for your department (5 or more people), please email firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss this option.
