Chuck Alley
In this hands-on course, you will discover how to create and shoot videos on your iPhone or iPad that have a high-quality look and feel. Create a video for your business, a family event, or just for fun. This course will guide you through the process of making your iPhone/iPad video look and sound its best. In this course, you’ll learn how to develop, plan, and shoot your project. You will also learn about iPhone and iPad lighting and audio techniques, as well as equipment add-ons and software for your iPhone or iPad.

We will start by looking at and talking about several videos shot on an iPhone or iPad, and how they can be improved. We will also discuss the filmmaking process, including scripting; selecting shots; and choosing a location, wardrobe, and props. We will discuss and practice the rule of thirds as it relates to framing interesting shots, best practices in lighting, and using natural light. Finally, we’ll talk about capturing quality audio and about using editing software versus in-camera editing. We will take an on-campus field trip to shoot general video footage and use it for class discussion. As an added bonus, we will discuss how and where to post your video.

This workshop is for students of all levels. An iPhone or iPad is required for the course.

Due to its short format, this workshop may not be taken for a Letter Grade. However, Credit/No Credit is available.
