Video & Media
Most people carry around a video camera every day—it just happens to also be a smartphone. If you think video taken on a smartphone won’t be professional enough for your eLearning courses, think again. This session will share essential tools—including apps, a gimbal, lights, and microphones—that can help you produce high-quality video without breaking the bank. In case you’re not convinced, you’ll see how this setup was used to produce video for a Storyline course that was voted Best Immersive/Simulation Solution at the Learning Solutions 2018 DemoFest.
Legitimate movies have been filmed on a smartphone, and you can do it too! Whether you’re creating talking-head video or something a little more cinematic, this session will teach you about the apps, equipment, tips, and tricks you can use to produce professional-quality video without a Hollywood budget. You’ll explore the logistical considerations that can make or break your video production, where to find professional actors who can get the job done, how to plan and budget for a video shoot, and what it takes to execute. Finally, you’ll see examples of these videos in action.
