The Day/Night School will teach you all you need to know to produce engaging videos.
It comprises 8 half-day video training sessions. It is called Day/Night School as sessions are scheduled to make attendance possible from nearly any time zone or country in the world.
The Day/Night School builds on our experience delivering online participatory video workshops and training academics and researchers on video making.
The first four sessions focus on filming techniques, and the last four focus on visual storytelling and editing.
The Day/Night School will be ongoing so you can choose sessions at times most convenient to you at your own pace.
