This learning event is right for you if you want to take engaging, high standard smartphone videos to capture your school’s events and happenings
Today’s smartphones allow us to capture excellent quality footage and photos. Have you always wanted to improve your filming ability, to take advantage of the camera you carry everywhere with you? This workshop, run by videographer Tessa van der Riet, will give you the skills to better compose and capture your videos, and provide guidance on how to create and collect clips for use in an edited video package.
The session will concentrate on what are the ingredients of a good video, and what exactly you need to get when ‘out-in-the-field’ filming a story. Schools are full of amazing stories that are waiting to be told. Using only your smartphone, you can film, edit and share these moments.
Come learn how!
