Effective Filming and Editing for Quality Online Storytimes

Effective Filming and Editing for Quality Online Storytimes

Are you looking to gain or brush up your filming and video editing skills to create effective and brilliant Online Storytime recordings? If so, this training is made for you!

We have partnered with Xavier Rousset from InFocus Video Workshops to create a bespoke two-part training package for public library workers creating Online Storytimes or making any other video content for your libraries and library communities. 

The training is split into two parts. Part 1 is a pre-recorded 35 minute video focusing on filming with editing in mind, because effective editing starts with filming. Xavier teamed up with Liz Khater from City of Canada Bay Libraries to create this part. Part 2 will be hosted by ALIA's Lisa Lynch and focuses on the editing component. It will be followed by a Q&A session with Xavier Rousset for you ask all your niggly editing questions. 

If you have time to watch the filming training video first, you'll get the most out of the editing part, however, you can always watch it back afterwards. 

Xavier will be using the video editing software Filmora in the training session. You can download a free version. Downloading the program ahead of the session is recommended but not compulsory. However, the skills demonstrated will hopefully be transferrable to other film editing software. 

Registrants will be given a link to download the raw footage shot at City of Canada Bay to practice editing alongside Xavier during or after the workshop.
