Join master storyteller and multiple Emmy award-winning journalist Patricia Gras for this workshop on how to create meaningful video narratives without expensive equipment or prior experience. Some have called this a new golden age of image and video, as many of us carry more video recording power on our cell phones than was available for much of the history of video journalism. We record our public and private moments with the ease of a simple click. But how do we shape them into stories that communicate the mean-ing of our experiences? In this workshop, we will explore the basics of video story¬telling. With hands-on training, we will discover how to develop narrative using storyboards and use our video equipment, from the simplest phone to more robust video and DSLR cameras. No experience is necessary. Please bring your camera, a notebook, and a computer or tablet if you have one.
A seasoned international journalist, Patricia Gras has received more than 170 journalism awards, including six regional Emmys. She speaks five languages and holds three masters degrees, including a master’s in journalism from Columbia University.
