Aspiring and experienced media producers can find classes to increase their skills at the Media Center. Hardware, software, and production values are covered by experienced instructors in a relaxed environment. We highly recommend that you start with our free hour-long Meet the Media Center & TV Studio Tour .
How do you tell a good story in under 60 seconds? In what ways can you apply professional filmmaking techniques to improve a video made with a limited set, only yourself as a performer, and a single smartphone for a camera?
This hands-on workshop strips the TikTok, YouTube, and Snapchat video production process down to its elements. Together we’ll examine the common visual and storytelling tools employed by online video creators and use this understanding to produce our own engaging, entertaining, and “like”-worthy content. With a little bit of pre-production planning, some clever camera and editing tricks, and a good supply of creative energy, you’ll be able to produce anything you can imagine. Class time will also be used to practice making our own content, which you will be welcome to share on your personal social media channels as you see fit.
This course will be hosted in Midpen Media’s professional television studio. Our studio lights, high-tech cameras, set pieces, and green screen will be available for your creative use throughout this workshop. Classes will be small and interpersonal, so students are welcome to come with specific questions about content creation. Our instructor, Pedro, is a pioneer of experimental media and avid enthusiast of “no stress” media production.
