video editing bootcamp class from May

PNC’s Office of Graduate and Extended Learning and Department of Communication will be offering its Video Editing Bootcamp, a non-credit lifelong learning programs at PNC’s Westville campus, again in October. The program will take place daily starting on October 6th and ending on October 20th. Class will run each Monday evening run 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. CST.

Participants will learn basic shooting and editing skills, as well as other techniques necessary to create short videos that can be shared with a variety of audiences through various mediums, such as Facebook and YouTube. In the words of PNC Associate Professor of Communication, Jeff Shires, who will be leading the program, “In three short sessions you will learn how to produce your own short stories. We will be talking about how to shoot and edit using a full editing package that incorporates transitions and simple effects.”

PNC will provide participants with the video equipment and software needed to engage in this hands-on program; however Shires recommends that participants also bring the devices they intend use to capture video footage after the program ends so that he can teach them how to maximize their capabilities as well. Such personal video equipment might include camcorders, smartphones, camera phones, flip cameras, and more.
