Event Details





VideoCamp SF is a "hyperlocal" event to be held in early 2010. By bringing seasoned web video creators together with people who are seasoned in "something else", we intend to train and develop various communities and individuals in utilizing the "Best Practices in Online Video" to help them excel in whatever "something else" they are up to. From understanding how to document the world, to how to get their Big Idea onto the web, VideoCampSF will help participants focus and achieve their online video goals.  

VideoCamp SF is comprised of three elements:

  • The Best Practices in Online Video classroom-track sessions
  • The Day 2 Practicum
  • The VideoCamp SF Moonlight Session

And there's two ways to participate:

  • For the bargain price of $65 Full-Timers can attend the Best Practices in Online Video sessions, the Moonlight Sessions and the Day 2 Practicum
  • For $20, Moonighters can attend the VideoCamp SF Moonlight session


The Best Practices in Online Video event is open to all "Full-Timer" participants. When you register, you will be able to choose on of three tracks:

The Newbie Sessions: Led by specialists in teaching people new to Web Video, the Newbie sessions will demystify the world of online video. Don't know how to create a videoblog? Have no idea how to upload a video to the web? Haven't got a clue how to shoot a web-friendly video? Then the Newbie Sessions are just for you.
