Description Creating compelling video content requires more than just knowing how to use a camera or edit a video. In this hands-on, practical unit, you will develop an appreciation of different tools and techniques, and enhance your ability to be able to create more powerful moving visuals: from researching and planning ideas, composing and framing compelling images, recording, enhancing sound, and editing. You'll have the opportunity to create a range of short content using accessible media, and publish your work online. No prior skills required.
