Sound and Motion: Film school techniques for live-action video learning

You’ve started using live-action video at work. Perhaps you’ve used it in the past but weren’t happy with the results. If this is you, you’ll agree that using live action to tell a story with the goal of educating the viewer is challenging. A video can just as easily distract or confuse as it can inspire and educate. And it can be expensive to get it wrong!

In this session, you will explore how the five fundamental dimensions of filmmaking taught at film school can be applied to creating live-action videos for learning. You will learn how to combine your knowledge of learning principles with some of the first principles of the film industry, and how to bake this into your scripts to maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of how you bring your concepts to life. Ultimately, you will learn to create more compelling live-action learning videos.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How you can use light and color to convey warm vs. cold feelings, saving you valuable storytelling time
  • How to use the 2-D space of a screen to focus attention by placing the most important information on the right
  • How depth and volume allow you to manipulate point of view and angles to convey new information about characters
  • How to neatly control subjective time and use slow vs. accelerated motion to create momentum
  • How sounds can convey time, mood, perspective, location, and environment, among many other pieces of information, in your videos

Audience:

Designers, developers, and managers.
