Whether you are doing a live Zoom class that you want to supplement with pre-recorded video or posting a video to the web, this class will teach you how to create engaging instructional video content. This class is targeted towards beginners with little or no video experience. Minimal additional gear and software will be required. Your iPhone camera will serve as the recording device and iMovie will be used to stitch clips together.
Unlike making a vacation or event video, instructional videos generally involve additional content types, such screen shots, screen recording, graphics, voice overs and video overlays. You will learn how to capture and incorporate all these different types of media into your finished piece.
The last session will introduce more advanced gear and software for those who want to take their videos to the next level.
This is a learn-by-doing class. Assignments will encourage you to put the lecture content into practice by developing a full featured, short instructional video piece.
Ken Rothmuller has been shooting images since getting his first camera as a teenager. Later in life he had both a B/W and color darkroom before switching over to a digital workflow. More recently he has had the opportunity to study under some great mentors, including: Jay Maisel, Joel Meyerowitz, Eddie Soloway, and Margo Davis.
Ken especially enjoys traveling with his camera allowing him to see new places more deeply, cementing memories and giving him the opportunity to interact with locals.
He has taught photo workshops and photography courses at Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA. You can reach Ken at: firstname.lastname@example.org
**This workshop will be live streamed via Zoom.**
Given we are still maintaining physical distancing, why not use this time to go out and flex our shooting muscles? Each virtual walk will have a title prompt to focus your shooting. We will all get together via Zoom to get guidance, share our work and get feedback.
The prompt is: “Fall is Coming”
There will be two sessions.
Now - go out and start shooting!
Perhaps after a few photo walks we can have BARN to showcase our work in an exhibit on our Media Arts landing page.
In this casual and informative 90-min. session, BARN’s Facility Manager, Darryn Achall, will walk you through the Video equipment available to BARN instructors. Vocabulary and the function for each piece of equipment used in online teaching will be demonstrated. Darryn will provide examples of how different Tech set-ups can work for different craft needs. You will also learn how you can access this equipment for your online class.
Darryn Achall has worked in facility management for 30 years. He has a BS in Software Development. He currently works as Facility and Technology Manager at BARN. He has worked on side projects for website development and open source software. Darryn has been involved in photography and videography as an amateur for 20 years. He especially enjoys underwater video while scuba diving. Darryn has a studio set up at home where he and his wife stream online whole food cooking classes. When the need arose for BARN to acquire equipment for online classes, he was designated as the person to lead this effort. Darryn is eager to assist all BARN instructors in getting the equipment setup that they need for streaming live classes or video online.
