Course Introduction

Welcome to our Experience Videomaking class! Have you ever wanted to make a video about a place you went or about something you did? How about a video resume or a tutorial to teach someone else how to do something? Maybe your church or homeschool group is having an event and you’d like to make a video to invite all your friends. This is the course for you! We’ll start out by learning how to use some free video software and learn how to put all the components together to create a good video. Along the way, we’ll have a lot of fun! Are you ready? Let’s get started.
