Online Learning Class via Zoom

We all live on social media these days so it’s important to understand how to create stories that can communicate with our audience, be those customers, subscribers, NGO’s, clients or even our children & grandchildren. If you’re a business owner, advocate, journalist, social media influencer or parent, this class will help you learn how to make video stories that will stand out from the herd on YouTube, Instagram, Facebook and even TikTok.

To master our ever-growing landscape of video on social media, we’ll use daily exercises to learn and practice the fundamentals of capturing a scene, how to interview subjects for impact and how to use text on screen to make your content stand out. For example, since people are consuming social media on the relatively small sized screens on their phone, the closeup has become the basic shot. We’ll also dive into the tools and techniques that work across all the platforms.

In this online class, students will roll all these ideas together into a short social media story about a community tailored for the platform of your choice. To participate, you’ll just need an up-to-date smartphone w/ 5GB of free space and Adobe Rush, a simple free editing platform. You’ll be able to hit the streets with the new skills and confidence to communicate effectively across platforms using video on social media.

BlindSight, a documentary short about a group of blind photographers that he directed, shot & produced had its world premiere at DOCNYC, the country’s largest documentary festival.
