Shooting Video On-The-Go

This workshop will provide a deep dive into the technologies and techniques that will help you get one step closer to making professional-quality videos by utilizing either your smartphone or one of the video cameras available in the CREATE equipment checkout inventory. By the end of this workshop you will know the essentials of shooting video on-the-go things like: adjusting your recording settings, tips for shooting on your smartphone, and learning what phone or camera accessories to bring out into the field for whatever your video project might be.

In this workshop, learners will be able to adjust their recording settings so that their phone is recording in 1080p resolution; describe best practices for shooting video on their smartphone; and describe the best accessories for their video shoot.
