The cost of shooting high quality video is at an all-time low and watching videos online has never been more popular – Cisco predict that 90% of web traffic will be video by 2013. Video can be a powerful way for third sector organisations to bring their work to life.
Part of the GCVS social media training programme, our hands-on workshop will teach you how to plan, shoot, edit and upload video for the web using software and equipment that won’t break the bank. You’ll come away from the workshop with working knowledge of storyboarding, planning a shoot, using audio and video equipment, interview techniques, editing your content, how to upload your videos to the major platforms, such as YouTube and Vimeo, and simple ways to attract more viewers.
The workshop is hosted by Be Good Be Social video wonder woman Erin Maguire – if you’ve ever been to one of our events she’s the one behind the camera and if you’ve ever watched our talks online it’s thanks to her. Erin has 15 years experience as a sound/video/lighting technician, 6 years as a filmmaker and 4 as a web media producer. She knows her stuff. I’ll also be on hand during the workshop to help Erin out.
Hope you can join us on 22nd March 9.30am-4.30pm, bookings can be made now via the GCVS website.
If you’re a fundraiser, someone new to the profession or if raising funds is part of your wider role then it’s hard to ignore the potential of online tools and social media. For many charities their online giving strategy starts and stops with a donate-button on their website, often with little thought put in to how they’ll encourage people to part with their hard earned cash.
