Are you interested in creating better event documentation videos for social media and personal use? This course will introduce best practices for filming in public and techniques for video capture and editing. Part one will take place Friday August 2, beginning with a discussion of the ethics and responsibilities of filming in public settings, followed by video capture of the community event the “Dog Days of Summer” 1st Friday , a very popular dog-friendly and dog-centric celebration all around our Old Town Manassas neighborhood. Part two will take place the following week in the Center’s Computer Lab where students will share their footage and each create their own “Dogumentary” of the event. Widely available video and sound editing software will be utilized on PCs in the Computer Lab. We will introduce location scouting, image stabilization, interviewing, filming collaboration, voice over and more. Students must bring their own cell phone for video capture with minimum 20 GB free memory space available to hold video footage, and an empty 8gb flashdrive. Class limited to 8 students.
