In today’s world, entire films are shot on iPhones, edited on laptops, and then shared to a worldwide audience with websites like Youtube. In this one-day intensive workshop you will become comfortable with basic aspects and best practices of video production, audio recording, cinematography, editing, and how to use a website like Youtube to upload and then share your work. The class is ideal for artists, students, communications professionals, beginning filmmakers, and anyone interested in DIY video.

Each student will have the choice to either make a video based on a theme that will be presented the day of the class or decide on their own topic. The student will walk away from the class with an uploaded short video to share with friends and family online and skills to build upon for the future.
