This three-hour intensive workshop, the students and faculty of SLA’s Rough Cut Productions to learn the technical and artistic techniques of communicating through video. The skills you will learn will be valuable both in creating great video content to help your students learn, and mentoring your students to create compelling video projects for classes and clubs.

After a brief overview of some important concepts you will dive right in to making your own short video. You will be teamed with one or more SLA advanced video students who will guide you as you film and edit your movie.

You can bring any device capable of taking video (smart phone, tablet, point and shoot camera, D-SLR, or dedicated video camera ) creating compelling visual narratives is about technique not equipment. We will help you get the most out of any device you have to work with, or you can use some of our gear if desired. After we screen the finished products you are welcome to spend the afternoon visiting classes at SLA.
