Studio 300 September Programs

recycled-vinyl-record-crafts-1If you didn’t get a chance to take one of our programs during the summer, don’t worry. This fall we are holding a wide variety of digital media instructional programs. Many of our most popular programs are back, too.

To start, we recommend taking an Orientation which grants you access to all the equipment and rooms in the studio. Discover Studio 300 Macs and Software is another great hands-on program that highlights some of the software we have to offer and helps you get acquainted with Mac computers.

Here are additional programs:

On Tuesday, September 17th, transfer those old VHS tapes to DVD or skip the DVD and make it into a movie file that you can save to an external hard drive and view it on your iPad.  If you’re thinking of making family videos of your kids and their school shows or plays, Planning and Producing a Mini-Documentary on Monday, September 30th can help you organize your ideas and show you the proper way to record those special moments.

Thinking of recording something slightly more exciting than your children’s plays, like mountain climbing or wrestling a bear? Well, we have a really tiny camera here at Studio 300 that you can check out, mount on your head and record just about anything.  Go, GoPro, Go on Monday, 9/16 will show you how to use this camera and show you some cool videos shot with this tiny camera, too.

Of course it’s important and fun to edit your videos with titles, music and some fun effects.  Video Editing Made Easy on Thursday, September 19th and Wednesday, September 25th show you just that and then how to share it online using iMovie.
