Make a short high-impact video for the web (January 19 & 26) @ Sur Place Media | Montréal | QC | CA

Watch a video trailer for this workshop: click here.

This beginner’s ‘bootcamp’ will walk participants through the basic steps of making a short video for the web; from developing an idea to writing a script to shooting to an introduction to editing.

The workshop will focus on non-fiction formats, like mini-docs and explainers, and will be almost entirely hands-on.

Over 2 Saturdays, we’ll go from a rough idea to a nearly complete one-to-two minute video about a topic of your choosing. (The workshop will provide an introduction to planning an edit, but a more in-depth editing bootcamp will be offered in another workshop.)

It’s meant for anyone who’s ever been interested in making a video, but didn’t know quite where to start.

No special camera equipment is required, only a cellphone with video capability. Participants will ideally work in teams of two.
