Description

Tues.-Wed., Jan. 17-18, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
Video Storytelling Intensive – Bob Sacha – Room 436 (14 students max)

Web video is hot: Video accounts for 50% of all Internet traffic and mobile video is set to explode. When you think of how easy it is to watch video on a smart phone or how beautiful video looks on an iPad, it’s no wonder that everyone wants more visual content on their screens. As a multiplatform journalist, it helps your job prospects if you know how to tell a story in more than one medium. This two-day workshop concentrates on video storytelling for the web, focusing on non-narrated stories of compelling characters and short, sharply focused pieces targeted for online viewing. We’ll talk about what type of stories work best for web video, finding strong characters, structuring stories, how to film and conduct an interview for a non-narrated piece, how to capture compelling visual sequences and finally, how to assemble a short video using Adobe Premiere. The mantra for the class will be “Show, don’t Tell!” This advanced class will be hands on, so you’ll need to be up to speed with Premiere and a professional video camera. You can see Bob Sacha’s work at www.bobsacha.com.
