Welcome to Week Four of the SciFund Challenge 2014 video training class. We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! This week, we’ll be focussing on four things: 1) using other people’s stuff in your video (legally), 2) choosing the right music for your video, 3) adjusting audio levels in iMovie, and 4) learning the art of editing.
Video class 2014, Thanksgiving Week
Here we are in Thanksgiving Week for the 2014 SciFund Challenge video training class, which is officially a week off for our course. Unofficially though, please do keep working on your videos and giving comments to the videos of others. Happy Thanksgiving!
Video Class 2014, Week Three
Welcome to Week Three of the SciFund Challenge 2014 video training class!
Last week, we looked at planning our videos and adapting our narratives to the visual medium of video, using storyboards. This week, we’ll start shooting scenes from our storyboard. To do that we will be thinking about principles in audio recording and cinematography that you can use to make your video feel more professional.
We’ve gone non-profit!
It brings me great pleasure to announce that the #SciFund Challenge is now officially a not-for-profit organization. After two years of planning and careful execution we’ve finally received our IRS approval. Now the REAL fun can begin.
Video Class 2014, Week Two
Welcome to Week Two of the SciFund Challenge 2014 video training class!
Last week, we focussed on how to convert our science into interesting narratives. This week: how do we turn those narratives into compelling visual stories? To do that, we’ll be using a standard planning tool for film making, known as storyboarding. Also this week: script writing!
This week you’ll be doing the following:
1. Putting together a storyboard and script for your video, which you’ll share to the class Google+ page for comments.
2. Giving comments to the storyboards and scripts for others in the class.
3. Taking part in a one hour group discussion, via Google Hangouts. The more of the class assignment you can get done before your group discussion, the better off you’ll be. At the least though, please get a draft of your script completed before your group discussion
On with the show!
