PNC Offers Non-Credit Video Editing Bootcamps

PNCThe Purdue University North Central Office of Graduate and Extended Learning and Department of Communication will offer two Video Editing Bootcamps, non-credit lifelong learning programs at the PNC Westville campus.

The programs will meet on Mondays from Oct. 6 through Oct. 20 from 5:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. The deadline to register is Sept. 30 at 4 p.m CT.

Participants will learn basic shooting and editing skills, as well as other techniques necessary to create short videos that can be shared with a variety of audiences through various mediums, such as Facebook and YouTube. PNC Associate Professor of Communication, Dr. Jeff Shires, who will lead the program, explained, "In three short sessions you will learn how to produce your own short stories." An advanced video editing seminar will be offered in November.

The registration fee is $165 per person. Special rates are available for PNC students, alumni and employees. PNC will provide the video equipment and software needed to engage in this hands-on program. Shires recommends participants bring the devices they intend use to capture video footage after the program ends so that he can teach them how to maximize their capabilities. This video equipment might include camcorders, smartphones, camera phones, flip cameras and more.
