Visual Narrative for Teachers
Visual Narrative for Teachers*
(kids teaching teachers how to make stuff!)
Friday, Jan 23rd (9am - noon) Limit: 30 participants
In this three-hour intensive workshop, you will work with the students and faculty of SLA’s Rough Cut Productions to learn the technical and artistic techniques of communicating through video. The skills you will learn will be valuable both in creating great video content to help your students learn, and mentoring your students to create compelling video projects for classes and clubs.
After a brief overview of some important concepts to focus on, you will dive right in to making your own short video. You will be teamed with one or more SLA advanced video students who will help advise and guide you as you film and edit your movie.
You can bring any device capable of taking video to work with - smart phone, tablet, point and shoot camera, SLR, or dedicated video camera - creating compelling narratives on film is about technique not equipment. We will help you get the most out of any device you have to work with.
This workshop is FREE, and will be held Friday morning from 9am - noon, after which you can spend the afternoon visiting classes at SLA. Although the workshop is available at no extra registration cost, you must sign up in advance. There is a limit of 30 participants in this workshop.
*This workshop will be essentially the same as last year's offering. We had an extensive wait list last year and wanted to accommodate those who missed out. If you participated last year, please give someone else the opportunity this year. We'll be back with a new offering next year.
