Introduction to Video Creation - Voice, Recording, Editing

The Internet is a democratic medium. It allows everybody to not just consume, but produce themselves! In this course I will talk about all the basics you need to know to do just that with good quality. This includes everything from voice training over lighting techniques and video and audio recording to encoding. The materials of the class are videos hosted on youtube, which will be updated at least weekly. There is no fixed schedule to this class.
