The next Aalto Media Factory video clinic takes place during November and December 2016
Want to make better videos about your research or study project? Want to discuss how to popularise science through videos?
Media Factory is organising a three-day video clinic, targeted to people who are using video as a tool in their work or studies, and want to develop their storytelling, shooting, audio recording or editing skills further. The clinic is an advanced version of our popular “Media Factory video school” -course.
During the course we will watch your previous videos and learn from them. Between the contact teaching days you will continue your current video project and get personal tutoring in developing your project further. Cinematographer Hans Barck, sound designer Ville Katajala and editor / script writer Anna Berg will be tutoring you.
We will have three full contact teaching days: 14.11. 29.11. and 15.12 on Arabia campus. Between these days you will need time to work on your video project. The main teaching language is English, but we also accept video projects which are in Finnish.
Register through this link before the 22nd of October. There will be a limited number of seats available and the participants will be selected on the basis of their need for these skills in their work / studies. We gladly welcome group registrations. If you’re register as a working group, please fill only one application (for the contact person).
The “Aalto Snapshots” are a series of short 3-5 minutes documentaries about Aalto’s phenomena – art and research projects, happenings etc. The goal of making this series is to present Aalto to the public and to create a standard for the university’s various presentation videos.
