You could buy a midsize house with the amount charged for training by some video production companies. So how do you produce a professional-quality training video on a nearly nonexistent budget? A video that you can be proud of, that “represents”? That includes on-screen talent and a technical demonstration at the same time?

In this session, you will learn how training developers at Cisco created a professional video using personal equipment, office supplies, basic video editing software, and on-staff talent. You will learn how you, too, can create a customer-facing video to represent your company and product like a pro. Finally, you will learn how it can all be done on almost no budget with some extra elbow grease—and a few laughs!

In this session, you will learn:

  • How professional-looking video is being done at Cisco
  • How cheaply it can be done
  • About the required equipment and office supplies
  • Methods to use to produce your own video on a budget
  • How to bring it all together with standard video editing software

Intermediate and advanced designers, developers, and project managers.

Technology discussed in this session:
Mobile device to shoot video, Adobe Fireworks (or graphics editing program) to prepare screenshots, and Adobe Premiere or iMovie to edit video and effects.
