Go beyond dreaming up a great idea for your next video. Bring it to life.

Whether you're a newbie or a seasoned producer, this boot camp is designed to help you hone and perfect your video production skills in the age of "Give it to me now" social media.

You will learn:

  • The core elements of video storytelling—from scripting and shot lists to getting your interview subject to loosen up on camera
  • Production fundamentals: Lighting, camera settings, framing and sound—and making that stuffy conference room not feel like a stuffy conference room
  • Visual narratives: Create your story with images that amplify your message
  • Best practices for promoting, posting and distributing your videos across all social channels so your audience sees, watches and shares your video
  • How to create a single editorial vision, story and brand
  • How to think about digital visual storytelling: Bringing a story to life, promoting it and distributing it
  • What (and how) to measure to determine success or failure

Veteran video producer Justin Allen will show you all you need to know to succeed in your video efforts. You'll walk away from this workshop with all the skills and know-how you need to be a superior video producer.
