NO PROBLEM.

 

 

For Jan. 8's "Show N Tell" WebEx 2-4p PST:

 

  1. Write your script on one side of a 4x6 index card. This forces you to be concise, but powerful. Final film is 2-3 minutes max.

  2. Schedule time w your Story Buddy to get their feedback and practice your voiceover.

  3. Use holiday gatherings with community members to get those high-resolution landscape (not portrait) videos and photos, using the Rule of Thirds.

  4. Accept my invite and start dropping pics, audio, video into your WeVideo folder. Tips here.

  5. Get a WeVideo sneak peak by watching tutorials, see examples by students, or peruse the process!
