9 a.m.-4 p.m.
Wednesday, April 15
OLA Preconference,Eugene, Oregon
A finished product on YouTube looks so easy, but a lot goes into creating a tightly woven, engaging video to highlight a library or library service. Experienced professionals from Salem’s CCTV will go over the general principles (and pitfalls) of filmmaking before letting attendees loose in teams to give it a try – using easily accessible tools (Flip cameras, cell phones, and Windows Movie Maker) to plan, create, and rough edit 60-90 second book trailers. The day will also include a discussion of the pros and cons of various video distribution platforms.
We’d love to see you for this excellent pre-conference and at the OLA Conference Thursday, April 16 and Friday, April 17!
