Backpack Video Storytelling (B432-12)
APPLICATIONS ARE NO LONGER BEING ACCEPTED FOR THIS SEMINAR.
You will shoot lots of video and edit what you shoot using Final Cut Pro. Poynter faculty have decades of in-the-field experience in television and online video storytelling. We will guide you all the way. You will learn the fundamentals of video composition, motion, transitions, sound and interviewing.
Whether you are a still photographer trying to learn video, a reporter who has to learn how to shoot and edit or an educator who needs to learn video skills to teach students, we cater to those who have never shot a frame all the way to those who have some skill but need confidence.
Canon, USA is generously providing video and DSLR cameras for our use. Feel free to bring your own gear if you’d prefer to polish your skills using your own camera(s).
