LS306 CANCELLED: Better Video: Twenty Tips in 60 Minutes
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM Wednesday, March 22
Video is all the rage, but what constitutes good video? In the YouTube era, many developers have been taught to point their iPhone and shoot with little thought to aspects like visual composition, lighting, and editing. When you’re shooting video, a number of small, easily adjusted factors often make the difference between a quality video and one that’s unwatchable.
This session will explore a number of practical, immediately applicable tips to improve the quality of your online learning video. All of these tips are designed to be implemented with little to no cost. You’ll see how to shoot video (and screencasts) to minimize expensive and time-consuming edits. Whether you shoot video with a professional SLR camera or an iPhone, whether you edit with Camtasia or iMovie, you’ll find that these tips will help you create improved video.
In this session, you will learn:
- How to compose video shots appropriately
- How to “shoot for the edit”
- How to select outstanding background
- How to create quick green-screen backgrounds
- How to create professional-quality bumper graphics
