Event description

Description

Currently around 80% of internet traffic is video. This is not surprising really because people love video. Being able to make video by yourself whenever you want, about whatever you want puts this brave new world of video firmly at your fingertips. But wait! There’s a snag. People have become picky. They won’t watch videos that don’t cut the mustard. Worse still, poorly made videos can do more harm than good. So the video we make HAS to be brilliant.

The reason for this surge in popularity of video is because it’s just so easy to make. This is of course down to the ludicrous simplicity of everyday technology such as iPhones and iPads. All this simplicity means we no longer have to fret about how to make video anymore. It frees us up to ponder the more pressing question of what kind of video are we going to make?

Rob Glass is a BBC-trained video journalist. By making over 1500 videos for broadcast he has come to the conclusion that there are two types of video: those that people have to watch (facts) and those that they want to watch (stories). The power lies in the humanity of the latter. By using storytelling as a framework, participants can quickly become fluent in both kinds of video in half a day.


REQUIREMENTS

Please bring a reasonably up to date iPhone or iPad if you can, pre-loaded with the free editing app 'iMovie'. With these, no previous video-making experience is required. Android devices may also work but because of their diversity users will need to have a working knowledge of their preferred editing app (e.g. 'PowerDirector'). Some headphones would also be a good idea. Please let Rob know if you'd like to borrow an iPad and some headphones on the day.


WHAT YOU'LL TAKE AWAY
