Video Production for Non-Techies
Are You Outsourcing Your Storytelling to Someone Else?
In this era of social media, we have done ourselves a terrible disfavour by outsourcing our storytelling to “the experts.” The easy accessibility of digital devices and applications makes it possible for anyone to tell a digital story (video). Even if you work with media experts, we must take ownership of our own stories and tell them well.
Video Production* for Non-Techies is part TWO of a TWO part Suite. You will learn not only how to edit and produce a video, but you will understand how to orchestrate voice, sound, and images so they tell a story that can move hearts. By the end of the two courses, you will complete and showcase your two-minute digital story.
This Suite in a face-to-face setting is valued at S$990.
* Why WeVideo is my preferred video editing software for Learners and Non-Techies

Course 1, Digital Storytelling Made Easy, will focus on the "storytelling" part of digital STORYTELLING. You will learn to write a great script for the digital storytelling genre.
We take a peek under the hood to understand how to turn your written script into a DIGITAL story. You will complete writing your 200-250 word script by the end of course 1.
Course 2, Video Production for Non-Techies, is not just a course that teaches you tech. I want to help you see “digital” in ways you may have never seen before. By the end of course 2, you will know the how-to’s to create your 2-minute digital story (video).
In this course, we will be using WeVideo to learn to create your digital stories. It comes in both free and paid versions. Find out why WeVideo is my preferred video editing software for learners and non-techies here.
NOTE: There are many free and paid video editing software in the market. The user interface for each is different but they all do the same thing – help you create your video. I will include links to other software that you can explore on you own.
You have a GREAT story. But the way a story is turned into a DIGITAL story can make your story distracting noise or invigorating music.
