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.
