Scott Spicer, University Libraries

This track has been combined with the digital storytelling track.

Are you ready to make that documentary, research trailer, oral history or some other video project? Understanding the video production process is key. Over the course of three days you will learn about the three main phases of making a video: pre-production, production and post-production. And while you will not complete your video, you will make good progress. You’ll also have the opportunity to workshop your ideas.

Meetings will take place Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, 9 a.m. – noon, and will combine demonstrations and work time. Scott is available by appointment in the afternoon. On Friday morning you’ll share your project, get feedback and discuss next steps.

Topics include:

  • Choosing your genre
  • Storyboards and scripting
  • Interview techniques
  • Audio recording
  • Finding and selecting media assets
  • Video editing basics
  • Captioning and accessibility
  • Copyright and fair use
  • Publishing and sharing your video

Number of participants: 3-5
Pre-requisites: an idea for your video project
