Using Video on a Shoestring

June 6, 2018

Live Online Event

Video used to be a medium we could only use for learning when we had large budgets and long timelines. However, the combination of decreasing costs of video creation equipment and increasing access to easy to use tools means that making video content is now possible even when you just have small—or no—budget. Not only that, but the inexpensive video you can create this way can still look polished and professional.

The Video on a Shoestring Spotlight will help you explore some of the best budget-friendly options for creating great video experiences. You'll take a closer look at what inexpensive video equipment and software is most worth investing in, find out what techniques can help you boost your video quality without adding to your cost, and even discover some creative approaches to using video tools you already have in new ways.

Registration for this event is now closed.
