    Reuse – record once and unleash on the world
    Preservation – captures time unfolding
    Demonstration – effectiveness in documenting technique
    Low cost – relatively speaking

    Used (and still in use) for distance learning.
    Precursor of many of our educational videos

    Forest Farming
    Beginning Farmers

  • 6. Creating videos
    The basic elements:
    Hardware
    Cameras, microphone, etc
    Software
    Editing, compression
    Topic (and people)
    Planning
    Storyboards
    Release forms
  • 7. Hardware
    Cameras
    SONY HD Handycam (model varies)
    Consumer and pro/prosumer models
    Cost $450.00 - $Thousands
    Tripod
    Sony,Slik,Manfrotto
    Better not to skimp, but budget dependent
    Audio
    Azden WLX-PRO Wireless LavalierSystem
    Not the most expensive, but we’ve had good luck with this lavaliermic system
  • 8. Hardware, part 2
    Computer:
    PC:
    Minimum 2 GB RAM, 4 or 8 better
    Hard Drive(s) – Bigger is better, 2 drives is better, too.
    USB 2 (minimum) and firewire ports
    Good video card (512MB, ATI)
    Intel Core 2 Duo E6300 (or faster)
    64 bit processor if using Premiere Pro CS5
    Mac:
    Minimum 2 GB RAM, 4 or 8 better
    Has built in firewire, usb, etc…
  • 9. Software
    Multiple Options
    Dependent on operating system
    For PC’s:
    Windows Movie Maker
    Pinnacle Studio
    Adobe Premiere
    For Mac:
    iMovie
    Final Cut Express
    Final Cut Pro
    Camtasia Studio
    Great product for many uses, not technically a video editing product
  • 10. New, emerging video devices
    Cellphones, flip video, Kodak Zi and related small objects.
    Advantages:
    Lower cost
    Portable
    High quality vide
    Disadvantages:
    Poor audio quality
    Steady hand needed
  • 11. Planning with Storyboards
    Storyboarding is:
    • A sketch of how you want to organize your video.
    • 12. Helps define the focus and key moments you want to capture.
    • 13. Will help reduce editing time.
    • 14. Is not a work of art.
    Storyboarding is key to both planning and the success of your project.
    In the case of an interview, well planned and thought out questions replace the storyboard.
  • 15. Interviewing for video
    Know your topic
    Prepare your questions in advance
    Do not fear silence
    Think conversation, not interview
    Ask for explanations of technical terms
    Pay attention – people are more open and responsive when they feel like they are being heard.
    Pay Attention – listen deeply and follow up – on either what is said, or what is left unsaid.
  • 16. Importance of good audio
    People will, generally, forgive poor image quality if the audio is good.
    Test audio before you begin filming.
    Always have spare batteries if your mics need them.
    If you are relying on the built in audio of your video camera:
    Minimize extraneous noises.
    Be close to your subject.
    Do not film outside on a windy day.
  • 17. Editing video
    Can be time consuming:
    Storyboarding can help reduce the time needed.
    Current hardware helps (it is possible to edit video on a 6 year old Dell laptop running Linux, using open source tools, but just because something is possible doesn’t make it reasonable).
    Just getting started? Use the simplest, most basic tool ( Moviemaker, iMovie).
    Save the original footage, project files, etc…. Just in case.
  • 18. Creating Video from pictures
    Compelling and informative video can be made using still pictures and narration.
    Advantages:
    Lower cost
    Faster time to the web
    Easy to learn and use software
    Camtasia Studio – an excellent software package all around.
  • 19. Hosting
    Youtube
    Large audience
    Easy upload
    10 minute limit on video length.
    Vimeo
    Less well know
    Easy upload
    500mb per week upload limit
    Can control who has access
  • 20. Participatory video
    Turning the camera over to your “stakeholders”.
    Focus on process, rather than product
    Can empower a group or community to tell their own stories.
    Means giving up control.
    Merits it’s own presentation, someday……
