Presented by Mary Daniel | Are you expected to produce video content even though you have no video production training? Or avoiding video even though an obvious fit for your business? Can’t really justify the cost of hiring a pro to deal with your relatively simple needs? But hesitate to use your own footage for fear it might taint your brand with amateurism?
The first of a two-part set of practical workshops designed to give beginners basic competency with shooting professional-feeling video, Part One will get you to where you can feel confident that your visuals aren’t screaming ‘amateur.’ Includes hand-holding, composition, and focusing techniques and an exercise to help you grasp what’s going on when auto-exposure gives you weird and unexpected results. In the afternoon you’ll have the chance to practice what you’ve learned with your own camera (phone just fine), and to extend your understanding of composition beyond the nuts and bolts.
This workshop is part of the Business Skills for Growth workshop series, an Artscape Launchpad initiative, which offers opportunities to develop creative entrepreneurship and business skills for the creative and cultural sector.

To help maintain community safety and contain the spread of COVID-19, Artscape has temporarily closed its community cultural hub facilities to the public and cancelled all Artscape-led in-person programming. We are monitoring public health and government recommendations regarding the reopening of non-essential businesses and public gatherings to guide our decision on a re-opening date.
Meanwhile, we welcome you to attend our free virtual programming through Launchpad Learning Online. See What’s On.
Stay safe and we look forward to seeing you soon!
