How To Self-Tape Workshop
with Kevin Burton
August 29th – 30th
This two-day course is designed to help you maximize the quality of your self-tapes using your phone!
This will be a hands-on course where you will be expected to record, edit and export two or three self-tape samples.
We will be opening the toolboxes of Adobe Rush (free Mobile App on phones and tablets) to record, edit, package and export your videos.
On Day 1, we will get Rush installed, opened, and look at how you use the in-app camera to record your video content.
We will also discuss the type of equipment (lights, microphones, tripods, camera mounts) and recording environment you should have to get the best quality recordings.
We will also talk about best practices for the different types of Self Tapes you may be asked to submit.
You will then be expected to go home and record two or three self-tape examples to bring into the session on Day 2.
On Day 2, we will open up the editing tools of Adobe Rush – on your phone or tablet !
We will use the videos you have recorded to learn to perform basic edits and transitions, to make sure audio and video levels are optimized, and to add titles. Then we will export the final product and discuss how to get it from your phone to the people who need to see it.
As a wrap up, we will talk about other options for editing on your phone, as well as options for editing your videos on your computer.
We will be using state of the art equipment provided by DARC in the Arts Court and a tour of their facilities and equipment and resources available to members.
Class size limited – only register if you are available both days.
