YouTube Video for Musicians 101 Kevin Eikenberg Session I June 1-5, 4-6pm
YouTube has created an enormously powerful self-promotion tool for artists of all mediums, and it has never been easier or more cost effective to create them on your own. The ability to record and post your own videos is becoming more than just a hobby; it is a legitimate way to get yourself heard on a larger scale. You will learn the fundamentals of video production and editing including camera technique, DIY solutions for big budget results, and techniques for getting your video seen on YouTube. We will focus on the basics of audio techniques, including microphone placement and technique, how to get great sounds out of low budget equipment, and basic audio editing. Participants are encouraged to enter prepared with a piece or song they would like to record, however this is not mandatory. All will leave with a video of their piece, or a video that they have filmed and produced.
