Why join the workshop?
There is a modern need for institutions and businesses to establish their presence online, and it is time to take advantage of this momentum and effectively reach their market or audience using this increasingly vital touchpoint. Today’s information-hungry and media-savvy online audiences are trending toward the increasing consumption of bite-sized and visually-appealing videos.
This hands-on workshop will introduce participants to the artistic and technical aspects of modern video production, and aims to share best practices, effective tools, and insider tips from industry experts, in order for them to understand the work and processes that go into creating impactful video content and apply what they learned into producing their own professional digital output geared toward their chosen target audiences.
This workshop is the final of four related courses on how you can use digital media to great advantage. INQUIRER.net journalists led by editor in chief John Nery draw lessons — of all kinds — from the experience of the country’s leading news website. Understand the three kinds of audience; learn to write fast; create your own pocket newsroom; work with the crowd to create content; share techniques for handling trolls; produce compelling video that works on all screens; and much more - only at the Inquirer Academy.
