Workshops Workshop 1: Test video Working in groups, create a short (under 2 minute) video to promote a businesses or product idea Workshop 2: Animation Working alone, use Animoto.com or Xtranormal.com to create a short (30 second) film to promote a product idea
Workshops In your group's video you could focus on interviewing a business owner, talking about the business you run or are planning to start (if this is at an advanced stage), or promoting a product (e.g. cosmetic product, technology product, book). If you chose the product option, pick a product you are passionate about and feel confident you could 'sell' in a video interview. Ideas: interview a businesses within or nearby the university, or create a promotional video for a university course.
Tips - Warm up inteviewees with practice run - Ask open questions - Get interviewees to include question in their answer - Create 'cutaway' material - Use in-camera edit - Get 'clean' takes (no errors) - Cue in 'takes' to reduce editing - Avoid motion shots - Tightly frame interview subjects
