Take your visual storytelling skills to the next level by combining audio, video*, and stills to enhance your photo story. In this five-day workshop, Deanne Fitzmaurice guides and inspires you as you create short multimedia videos that tell a story about some aspect of life in Santa Fe.
The subject matter is up to you; you may choose to delve into cultural or human-interest aspects of local artisans, ranchers, or tattoo parlors, chronicle life at a fire station, or document aspects of “tourist town” Santa Fe ... the sky's the limit! Regardless of your focus, Deanne offers techniques on accessing subjects—and gaining their trust—so you can capture real and authentic moments.
We work in a documentary narrative style, and participants interview subjects using high-quality audio, getting comfortable with sequencing, transitions, and collecting ambient audio. We experiment with multimedia techniques and equipment, including microphones, audio recorders, and rigs for video stabilization. In The Workshops state-of-the-art digital lab, we explore the editing capabilities of Adobe Premiere Pro*, learning how to weave together images, video, and audio.
Multimedia storytelling that showcases rich content is very much in demand. Whether you are creating a project for a magazine, corporation, NGO, foundation, non-profit, or simply for yourself, in this workshop you obtain a new set of tools for crafting narrative documentaries with nuance and depth.
*Video is optional. Want to get a head start on editing a video? We suggest you take the Adobe Premiere Pro two-day intensive, March 11-12!
