Video Storytelling

Do you want to be a YouTuber and start a social media channel to tell your story that highlights your passion, hobby or business? Video Storytelling will take you through the basic steps of how to plan a story, pick locations, use basic video equipment and then edit your work into a story. In this class, we will visit select locations around Singapore where each student will plan a story and shoot a video with basic video cameras and equipment (yes, using a smartphone is acceptable). You will then learn how to edit it with proper flow, music and sound, and to showcase your narrative to an audience.

By the end of the class you will be able to put together a fun and exciting short video story.
