Guardian Media Academy Offers Video Training

VJ guru Michael Rosenblum, in partnership with The Guardian, is offering video training courses in the U.K. for both amateurs and professionals. It's called the The Guardian Media Academy, and its initial offerings include:

* How to Shoot Great Video (1 Day)

* Video Editing for Beginners (1 Day)

* Two-day Video Training

Do you want to be able to produce high quality videos for your business or your website or do you just want to be able to make great home movies that people will actually want to watch?

In this two-day intensive class we will teach you everything you need to get started: how to shoot, how to tell a compelling story and how to edit using Final Cut software. By the end of the two days you will have produced your own short film and will understand what it takes to make a really good video.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have your own camera and laptop; you can rent them from us and no experience is required.
* Four-day Professional Video Producers Boot Camp

Designed for people who want to earn money or make a living from creating video content. Whether you’re a journalist who needs to re-skill or someone who wants to produce their own videos to sell to online and broadcast clients then this is the training you need to be successful.

The course covers everything from basic and advanced shooting to advanced storytelling techniques and non-linear editing. Each delegate will produce at least two high quality videos during the course which will be critiqued by professionals who have produced thousands of hours of video content for clients like The BBC, Conde Nast and The New York Times.
Emphasis will be on both technology and aesthetics. "Over the past 20 years," notes Rosenblum, "RosenblumTV has created a simple method that gets people up to broadcast quality in only a few days. And the emphasis isn’t just on the button pushing, but rather on how to produce compelling video stories. No matter how well shot something is, if it’s not a great story, no one will watch it."

Course dates are in October, and 10% early-bird tuition discounts are available through August 30. Register here.
