Overview

The ability to shoot and edit video is rapidly becoming a sought after skill. Many businesses seek people who can bring more than just a single skill to the table, and video creation can be a key one. In this The Art of Visual Storytelling course offered by Coursera in partnership with University of Colorado Boulder, you will do more than just understand the concept of creating a professional video, you will actually produce one for your portfolio!

Component courses are broken down into the Stages of Video Production: Pre-Production, Production, and Post-Production. In Pre-Production, you will learn how to generate ideas, write proposals, scripts, and draw storyboards. In Production, lessons include basic camera functions, composition, depth of field, getting the exposure right, and shooting for the edit. You will also learn how to light and frame an on-camera interview and how to record professional audio. In Post-Production, you learn editing basics using non-linear editing programs like Adobe Premiere, how to create aesthetic graphics, and how to avoid copyright issues.
