Mobile Storytelling with Your Smartphone
Starts May 6
1 session: Saturday, May 6, 10 am–5 pm
Your smartphone can shoot amazing high-definition footage. Learn how to harness its potential, shoot and edit footage, and upload to social media sites. Students will conduct interviews, capture great sound, and practice shooting steady, sequenced video. After shooting a short film, you’ll learn how to edit and upload your video to a social media network. Other topics discussed are livestreaming, handheld considerations, and optimizing lighting conditions. Students should bring their iPhone or Android phone and have at least 3GB of space available. Students receive a FREE download of the FiLMiC Pro gold standard app for mobile HD video (for iPhone or Android) – the same app used to shoot the award-winning feature film TANGERINE.
Tuition: $175 regular/$130 member/$100 low-income
