If you’re in the Los Angeles area in August, come join VideoActive training!
I’m excited about this training that I’m doing with the LA Media Reform Group of California Common Cause and Urban & Environmental Policy Institute at Occidental College. It’s a hands-on workshop to teach community organizations and non-profits (in teams of 2 or 3 members each) how to make and distribute video shorts for social justice and progressive social change. The training will take place on two Saturdays in August, at Occidental College, Eagle Rock, Los Angeles, California.
Here’s the broad brush agenda:
Day 1: Saturday, August 22, 2009 from 11:00am – 3:00pm
Getting Started (Pre-production and planning for filming)
Through a discussion with videographers about how they conceived their project, learn what makes effective storytelling and how to spur the public to act. Also, gain tips on how to use a Flip Camera to best convey your message and capture your intended audience’s attention
Day 2: Saturday, August 29, 2009 from 11:00am – 3:00pm
Putting It Together (Editing and distribution)
Get hands-on training for the Flip Camera editing software and how to upload your video online. Learn how to get your video seen by the world. Participants can use the week between trainings to videotape content.

If you can’t make the training, don’t fear! We’re planning on another round in the Fall!
