VLOGGING, or “video-blogging”, has become a major trend in content marketing. Their authenticity connects with viewers, they help build a community of like-minded people, and many are monetized through corporate sponsorships, product placements and advertising.
With a desire to share, ordinary people, just like you, turn themselves into VLOGGERS. They have a vision, setup a camera, look into the lens, and deliver insight, comedy or motivation, a peak into their daily life, information about clouds or comic books, cars or slime or sour candy!
But the best VLOGGERS have a strategy. They plan and prep and purchase a few key pieces of gear or software in the beginning. They study themselves, their environment, and they explore and find neat ways to get their message out.
This class is for you, the budding adult VLOGGER. The person who has an idea, and is ready to share it online with their own style of video. For fun, or to promote your business or talk about a hobby. This course is set up to take you through some of the important principles, best practices, equipment and techniques that you will need to help make you effective at creating engaging VLOGS.
Using footage captured in and out of class, each student shall produce their own VLOG episode by the end of class, and have the knowledge and key steps needed to produce more. Prior experience is not required, but a burning desire to VLOG is!
