PNC Offers Non-Credit Video Editing Bootcamps

PNCThe Purdue University North Central Office of Graduate and Extended Learning and Department of Communication will be offering two Video Editing Bootcamps, non-credit lifelong learning programs at PNC's Westville campus in May. The programs will take place daily starting on May 12, 2014 and ending on May 15, 2014. Individuals may choose between two available class times, which are from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. each day and 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. each day.

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. In the words of PNC Associate Professor of Communication, Jeff Shires, who will be leading the program, in four short sessions you will learn how to produce your own short stories.

The registration fee for community members is $150.00 per person. Special rates are available for PNC students, alumni and employees. PNC will provide participants with the video equipment and software needed to engage in this hands-on program; however Shires recommends that participants also 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 as well. Such personal video equipment might include camcorders, smartphones, camera phones, flip cameras, and more. The deadline to register is May 16, 2014 at 4:00 p.m CST.
