Sign up now for an intensive, interactive weekend workshop at the digital studios of the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism in Manhattan’s Times Square. This popular workshop fills up quickly, so don’t delay. Come and learn the skills you need to be able to shoot compelling video stories. The course will feature hands-on learning of video shooting, editing, polishing and publishing, led by top multimedia journalists Bob Sacha and Jeremy Caplan with experience running workshops at MediaStorm, Columbia and other leading training workshops. The training is geared toward those who want to produce short videos about people, ideas, stories, products, places or projects. On day one, we start with video storytelling, how to choose the right story for video, how to record clean audio and a compelling interview, how to shoot a basic video sequence and how to use basic Final Cut Pro X. On the second day, working in teams of two, everybody shoots a very short piece and edits in FCP. We then learn from watching the video pieces in our bootcamp film festival. Questions? E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
