Learn the fundamentals of video production planning, filming and editing for your corporate or government needs.

Are you confident using your video camera? Are you capturing high quality video? Do you use lighting and audio principles effectively to build value with your video projects? If you answered “no” to any of these questions, then the Video Production 1 course is for you. This is a very hands-on class with time spent using gear and lighting, as well as editing your footage in the lab.

This course covers a range of topics including equipment needed, the complete production process, and post-production editing.  You will take this knowledge to effectively film interviews, events, meetings, video blogs and testimonials. In this training, you will setup a film set with lighting, backdrop, microphones and other gear to create a basic interview.
