You may be one of the millions of people carrying a fairly high-quality camera with you all day long—in the form of a smartphone. Or, perhaps you recently purchased a GoPro or another form of digital camera. Do you want the videos you create with these devices to look more professional and interesting, without going to film school? This hands-on course will expose you to the concepts of planning (how to create a script, a storyboard, and an execution plan for your video); shooting (including lighting, sound, and composing a shot); editing (the academics of good editing and the technical steps to accomplish polished videos); and publishing video for the web (such as YouTube and Facebook). We will start with a crash course in pre-production and cinematography, and then do hands-on work editing footage. By the end of the course, you will have created a simple, short video and published it online.
