Virtual Video Project sponsored by Richmond Performing Arts Alliance
600 E. Grace Street, Suite 400
REGISTRATION IS OPEN- SPACE IS LIMITED!
We have all had to make some adjustments to our lives and livelihoods in the era of social distance. People have been forced to adapt to using video to communicate remotely. As you may have seen, there have been varying degrees of success. There is a very high demand for those who know how to effectively use digital collaboration tools, or how to create clear visual design, or how to tell stories that have emotional impact. Even those of you who are very familiar with technology, may not be aware of all the techniques and free tools available. This course will be a first step towards creating your own self sufficient digital productions.
We will learn the creative process: we will explore the digital and creative tools at our disposal; we will examine what works and what fails in digital media; we will learn to tell clear stories that both inform and have emotional impact; we will learn various methods of web delivery as well as the pros and cons of each. These tasks will all culminate in the course project: we will each create a short video piece to tell the story of a local charity or cause that is important to you.
“I will find a way or make one.”-Hannibal
Creativity is about problem solving, and we as humans have lots of problems to solve. We are fortunate to have a great many tools at our disposal, but no technology is as powerful as the collaborative creative process. Our course will be a combination of self directed research and collaborative workshop. I will release daily lecture notes each morning. It will include links to video materials, software downloads, and tutorials, as well as prompts for each stage in building your video piece. We will meet daily via GoogleMeet from 11am to noon to discuss the day’s material, and to help one another develop our videos. We will have a watch party on Saturday the 18th at 11:30am to enjoy everyone’s finished pieces.
Camp Dates: July 13-17
Time: Participants will have a daily video conference from 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM using Google Meet.
