IAP 2010: Making Your Own Videos for the Web & MIT TechTV

Posted January 6th, 2010 by Ryan Gray

Web video is suddenly everywhere. From YouTube to MIT’s own MIT TechTV, it seems like everyone is creating and posting video on the Internet. Now you can join the club. In this seminar, you’ll learn the basics of video production, digital video editing and how to post your finished piece on sites such as MIT TechTV. No experience necessary. A laptop loaded with some kind of digital editing software (Apple iMovie, Final Cut Pro, Windows MovieMaker, etc.) is nice but not required.

Enrollment is limited to 20 participants and is on a first-come, first-served basis. Participants are welcome at individual sessions or the entire series.

All sessions will be held in the DIRC, 14N-132.
