On site video training
Online video is becoming an essential component of the modern website. Video is a great way to convey information about your product or service or to tell a story. With major developments in camera design, software and media delivery methods, high quality video production is now within most peoples grasp and can be undertaken with a minimum of outlay. Video can be used to; introduce your business, describe a product or service, present customer testimonials and inform or entertain your audience. Outsourcing small video projects can be very expensive but recent technical developments mean that with a small amount of knowledge and a modest budget good quality video can be produced in house.
Recording high quality sound for video
We offer on-site training sessions from one to three days which cover most of the skills required to plan, shoot, edit and deliver online video content.
The sessions encourage ‘best practice’ in camera use, lighting and sound recording. This knowledge covered in the course can easily be scaled down to record videos using available resources such as mobile phones and tablet computers.
The content of the course can be adapted to suit your needs.
Our one video training day sessions are;
Planning and shooting a short video
This practical workshop covers planning a shoot, operating a dSLR, framing, composition, camera supports, camera movements (using sliders, jibs, dolls etc)
Lighting for video and recording good audio
During this session we will first look at the qualities of light such as contrast, intensity and colour temperature. We then explore techniques used for lighting products and small areas and lighting larger areas for interviews etc. We also consider the importance of good quality audio and how to capture it during a shoot or add it later as a narration. We look at different microphones and other audio equipment
Editing the video
This session covers the art of editing and how to cut your captured media into a finished video.
I have produced web videos for a number of high profile clients as well as being a qualified lecturer with over 20 years teaching experience both in university and to business.
During the course we will use professional video equipment including Arri lighting, DSLRs, Sound Devices audio mixers, radio and boom microphones and video editing software.
Courses can be delivered as 1:1 sessions or to up to 3 attendees.
The price per session is £360 / person/day or £600/person for three days or £1600 for three attendees.
We are based in the Bath/Bristol area but can deliver the training anywhere in the UK but there may be additional charges for travel and accomodation.
