In this class we will cover how to make your production look and sound better — no matter what device you are using, why or why not you should tell a story live, which video platform is best for your purpose, how to put your live video on Facebook, YouTube and elsewhere at the same time, how to make sure live will work where you are, how to attract and keep an audience, and what to do with your video after it is no longer live.

NOTE: You do not have to have previous experience with live video to take this class. Being familiar with how your camera works will be helpful.

Bring to class:

Your smartphone with camera and wifi connectivity and/or a video camera with an HDMI output.

Tripods and laptop computers are nice to have for this session. Bring them if you have them, but they are not necessary to participate in the class.

Ways of Seeing/Ways of Telling: A workshop series

Everyone has a story to tell, the person you pass on the sidewalk, stand in line with at the grocery store, sit next to on the train or bus—and YOU. However, not everyone has the tools or techniques required to share stories in a compelling and meaningful way. This June The UpTake offers you the opportunity to become more skilled at the craft of storytelling, whether through writing, audio, video, or photography. You’ll work with instructors who have years of experience in their field: author Carolyn Holbrook, photographer Wing Young Huie, audio storytellers Dave Engen and Robert Jersak, and videographer Michael McIntee. Space is limited, so register today!
