W1F: Producing Library Videos: A Hands-On Experience

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

Target Audience: Librarians interested in producing instructional and marketing videos

Learning Outcomes:
1. Participants will learn how to produce short, quality videos, by writing, shooting, and editing a simple story.
2. Participants will be able to identify appropriate video production equipment options for various budgets and skill levels.

Communicating through video is an increasingly popular medium for education and training. Instructional videos provide patrons the flexibility to learn about library resources at their convenience. Producing videos can save library staff time by documenting research tasks and library tours in a medium that can be repeated over and over again for individuals. A trend among law librarians is increased discussion of adopting do-it-yourself approaches to creating videos for their institutions. This is because the cost of hiring professional filmmakers to create dynamic videos is usually prohibitively expensive given typical library budgets. The goal of this workshop is to provide practical, hands-on experience to enable law librarians to write, shoot, and edit informative videos for the benefit of their patrons and clients. A professional filmmaker will provide instruction and guidance as participants test their new skills throughout the workshop. The librarian speakers will share their experiences as novice filmmakers with no production budget. While some familiarity and comfort with digital cameras and creative software programs will be helpful prior to the workshop, participants will receive an introduction to all video production tools along the way.
