This workshop will focus on non-fiction formats, like mini-documentaries, news clips, profiles and explainers, and will be almost entirely hands-on.
Paul Shore has over 20 years experience telling stories as a videojournalist and is offering a beginner’s ‘bootcamp’. On 2 Saturdays, a week apart, Paul will walk participants through the basic steps of making a short video for the web; from developing an idea and writing a script to shooting, and planning the edit and publishing. Over the 2 days, you’ll develop a 1-to-2 minute video about a topic of your choosing.
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, but a smartphone with video capability is. Participants will ideally work in teams of two.
