Webinar video

More informations about this webinar

Webinar Description 

Before you push record on any video, there are some key steps you should take to ensure your video will achieve the goals you set out for it.

Our friends at Lights.Camera.Help will walk through some of those steps, from sowing the seeds of a good story from the community you plan to record and having thought-provoking questions in hand, to the need for storyboarding and sometimes scripts, to what kinds of equipment are ideal.

We'll cover everything from making sure you have a clear purpose and goal to the story, how to target your audience, getting a storyboard laid out, to what type of hardware you should have on hand before you start shooting.

This is the second webinar in the Baby Steps webinar series, which is part of the Baby Steps Competition to engage caregivers, family members, and early childhood educators in answering the question "What do you do with your kids?" We hope to provide organizations and individuals with the skills and know-how to create video stories for this competition and to expand your organization's ability to achieve your mission.
