Creating video content for business
Fethard January 2023
This workshop was designed to bring participants on a fast track journey through video production.
This two-day workshop was designed to teach how to film a short documentary or corporate video project by observation and participation. Over the course of our two days, we worked with participants to shoot and edit a short documentary about the local RNLI. The workshop was run as a partnership between Screen Wexford and Crannog Media.
The workshop was delivered over two days. The first day was dedicated to filming processes and the second day was focused on post-production and editing.
Working with the participants we created an interview set-up in the Hook Community Centre. We created an interview set-up with a Sony FS7 and brought the team through a 3-point lighting set-up and detailed interview techniques. Once we completed the interview the team moved to the Fethard RNLI base where we created a series of sequences to showcase the process of how to build a visual story to support and interview. The goal was to focus on observance and witnessing the filming process to provide great context for the post-production process. Throughout this process we had a 5 cameras available along with sliders and gimbals to give the team an opportunity to shoot footage and learn about cameras, framing and building sequences.
All participants brought their own laptops and ran Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve to edit this project. During the course of the editing process we walked them through a basic introduction of how you edit and manage your footage. Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve is a free professional editing software you can download and try for Free. Link here. There are also loads of free tutorials on youtube. Link here
Once the session was complete we finished an edit which has been provided to the RNLI and will be posted here once its is complete.
