Description

Create and Caption Book Trailers and Other Videos (one-day workshop for library/literacy staff/volunteers)

Videos are a great way to engage library patrons. From informative videos to fun and intriguing book trailers, creating short films about your library is sure to get attention. Captioning videos is not only required by law but also ensures that your videos are accessible to a broad audience. In this class you will learn the fundamentals of creating and captioning a short book trailer using laptop software. An overview of different video options and technology will also be provided. Attendees should prepare for class by selecting a short book for use in creation of a one-minute book trailer.

There is no prerequisite for this class.

Emily Hurst, head of Research and Education at Tompkins-McCaw Library for Health Sciences, Virginia Commonwealth University, will teach the class.

Travel stipend for overnight stay may be available if public library, library system, tribal library or literacy organization is 60 miles or more from ODL. Initial travel stipend paperwork must be returned to ODL before the class date. Contact Doris Dixon to request paperwork via email Doris.Dixon@libraries.ok.gov or phone (405) 522-3217. Stipend will be based on lodging receipt,up to $92. If lodging charges are less than $92, the contract will be written for the actual amount, not $92.

Stipend contracts will be made out to the library/literacy organization. It will be your responsibility to collect your reimbursement from such organization.
