High-speed broadband Internet and affordable DVD/Blu-ray distribution have revolutionized how video can be used as a sales and training tool for today’s businesses. Utilizing the latest HD digital technology, tapeless XDCAM workflows and traditional production techniques, students learn how to efficiently create highly effective scripted broadcast-quality videos with minimal crew and affordable equipment.
The instructor for this course is director/cameraman Doug Jensen of Vortex Media who has written and produced literally hundreds of training and promotional videos for dozens of clients during is 33-year career. Topics covered include script writing, pre-production preparations, crew management, camera technology and operation, working with teleprompters, directing both professional and amateur talent, audio recording, basic lighting, post-production, and general advice on running a successful independent video production company.
Because this workshop addresses both the creative and technical elements required for producing successful broadcast-quality training and promotional videos, it is idealy suited for independent producers, corporate multimedia staffers, ENG/EFP professionals and event videographers who want to take advantage of this rapidly expanding sector of the production industry. The course combines formal classroom lectures with practical hands-on fieldwork as students get experience working in many production roles as the class works together to produce at least one entire instructional video from beginning to end.
