Video Production Essential Skills 3


Take your skills to the next level in this 3-day video production course. In this training you will learn how to organize and create short documentaries and corporate explainer videos. 

This is a very hands-on class with time spent using gear and lighting as well as editing footage and creating motion graphics in the lab.

Short Documentaries are 3 - 10 minute non-fictional short stories. These type of stories help to communicate company culture, communicate company’s mission and vision or tell a compelling story about an employee, customer or individual. Short documentaries are timeless and you can use it throughout the years over and over again.

Corporate Explainer Videos are 1 - 2 minute videos that provide a step by step approach to describe the company or department services and/or product. Explainer videos are extremely visual, combining video, graphics, animation, titles, music, sound effects and sound design. Due to its visual complexity it is the longest format to complete.
