This course is particularly relevant for journalists wanting to create videos for their newspaper, magazine websites and many other video uses in order to attain better audience engagement and stake-holder buy-ins.
In our course, we limit the camera teams to just three people (camera, audio and interviewer) to ensure that everyone gets practical hands-on experience. Each class is limited to a maximum of nine people.
You will learn all the important and practical aspects of creating videos; in particular you will learn:
- Pre-production: Preparing for a shoot including conceptualising, writing a script, coordination
- Production: Camera technical setup detailing how to set the white balance, choosing the right lens for the shoot, setting the right aperture and focus; ambient and studio lighting; audio recording: types of microphones, how to place them and how to monitor the recording; shot types and framing including how to employ camera movements to add dynamism and interest; how to conduct and shoot an interview
- Post-production: Overview of editing techniques including voice-over recording, titling, integrating music into the edit
- Delivery: final project output and ingest into online platforms or output to local file
By the end of day two, you will have gained the knowledge and confidence to continue to create videos, both for yourself and your company.
If you want to create your own videos internally rather than hire an outside agency, we can help you. We can run training classes for your staff that are customised to your own requirements and be run within your own company premises.
