Summer Learning

Wed, 07/16/2014 - 12:44pm

CCTV member Indu Kadambi recently completed her very first video project and stated, “I love what CCTV does, and it’s definitely a community resource – to pursue interests, to connect with people, and to learn about and give back to the community. Try the different classes, there’s so much to learn here.”

Welcome to Summer! What a great time to learn some new skills or get that project you’ve been dreaming about off the ground! Whether you are ready to pick up a camera for this first time, or like Indu you are prepared to start on your next video, or you are looking for new skills and ideas, please don’t miss the fantastic educational opportunities coming up in July! There is no better time than the present!

First of all, you have not taken Field Camera I (Sun, 7/13) or Edit I: Beginning Final Cut Pro X (starts Mon, 7/14), take them next week! Summer is the perfect time to get started. These are media fundamentals that are great to have under your belt, gain you access to CCTV’s cameras and edit suites, and are requirements for a lot of the more advanced classes. Edit II: Intermediate Final Cut Pro X (starts Sun, 7/20), is a great follow up to Edit I and is only offered once every quarter - it starts Sunday, July 20th and it will not be offered again this summer.

This month, for production classes we have a couple of brand new classes! Digital Video Profiles (starts Tues, 7/29), is a class which focuses on profiling people and creating a short video profile piece. Video profiles are currently a very popular way to advertise an organization, an individual, or an idea. Taught by professional filmmaker and producer Richard Hawke (who has done several video profiles for MIT), this class will teach you how to effectively use b-roll, interview, lighting, composition, and storytelling strategies. Also starting in July is Basics of Creative Sound (starts Mon 7/28), a class which assumes you have some audio experience but want to learn how to use audio creatively in design and storytelling. You will create a short piece in the class using text, music, effects, and atmosphere. This is a great way to start thinking about audio in new ways - from sound art to podcasts!

Story Construction 101 is a single session class offered on Sunday 7/27 that will teach you the fundamentals of narrative structure - what makes a story compelling and what creates great drama? It's the perfect class for thinking about how to put together your next project. Internet Security and Privacy (Wed, 7/23) is a class that has specifically been requested by our members - it will teach you how to safeguard your identity online - it really is incredibly useful information for everyone.

If you are interested in learning how to create cool animations and motion graphics in the large CCTV studio, Character Generator: Inscriber starts on Wednesday 7/30 and is a great way to get experience with this fundamental component of studio production. This class will be offered FREE to CCTV access members who have taken Primetime for a limited time only!!! - so take advantage now! Make your next studio production look truly professional!

We also have another fun new class called Pocket Filmmaking 101 starting on Thursday, 7/31 - this class will teach you how to use nothing but your smart phone or tablet - and a laptop - to create sophisticated looking videos. It starts from the premise that the “best camera” is the camera you already have on you.

We also have many more classes starting in August including (but not limited to): Narrative Still Photography, Making the Parody for Film and TV, Multimedia Reporting: How Best to Package Your Story, and much more!

For additional information, please visit our learn page!

If you have questions about any of these classes, or classes in general, please feel free to contact Allison at 617-401-4009 or allison@cctvcambridge.org or call the front desk at 617-661-6900 or stop on by during our hours of operation!

MIT Presents: "Advanced Urbanism & Energy"
More than half the world’s energy supply is consumed in cities. Advanced urbanism offers new paradigms for increased efficiency through mixed-use buildings, hybrid densities, smart infrastructure, and innovative transportation systems, but transforming today’s cities will require a massive coordination of efforts reliant on existing resources while driving a global transition towards reliance on sustainable resources. Defining a vision for a new urban energy future poses an equal challenge for designers, planners, policy makers and engineers to develop the forms, technologies and metrics that will help to realize it. Produced by MIT.
