Three-part video workshop, live or live-streamed

A three part video production workshop on March 13 and 20 and on April 3 will teach small business owners how to create an audience and a platform of appropriate video, and how to get it in front of your desired audience.

The Economic Development Association of Skagit County and Rebecca Murray of Skagit Media Marketing are co-sponsors. The workshop is open to San Juan County residents, and all courses are live-streamed so you can attend from your business or home.

Session 1 reviews various recording devices, lighting types, tips and techniques and a light kit demonstration.

Session 2 covers camera types and cost, filming techniques, editing software, editing strategies, and how to plan a video production with a script, shot list, storyboard, music, and voiceover.

Session 3 is Video Marketing 101. How can video help your audience find you? Is YouTube all that important? What do video hosting companies offer and why are they important?

Sessions begin at 4 p.m. at 204 West Montgomery in Mount Vernon or via live internet stream. Homework assigned.  $50 for each workshop or $135 for the series; $40 or $110 for members or streaming. Refreshments provided.
