Shooting and editing secrets to create quality videos that draw attention to your business

Ten years ago every business needed a web page, but now a web page alone isn’t enough. With ubiquitous high speed internet and millions of videos on YouTube competing for attention, every business needs video.

How can you create videos that live up to the quality of your brand? Not every business has the budget to hire a production company. Even for those that do, not every project justifies the expense. Fortunately, with a little knowhow and ingenuity you can produce your own quality videos.

In this three hour boot camp, learn how to shoot professional looking video with the smartphone or digital camera you already have, discover editing techniques the pros use, and see what inexpensive equipment can really boost your production values.

Whether you use video externally, to excite your customers and drive repeat web traffic, or internally, to train and communicate with employees in more engaging ways, this boot camp has something for you!

CREATING THE FUTURE OF AFRICA, ONE FARMER AT A TIME
When it comes to creating sustainable business and industry, the people of Africa still have a ways to go. This is especially true when it comes to having farms that grow enough food. That is exactly the problem Fatou Doumbia is working to solve through her work at the international non-profit Agile International.
Working with local women farmers in Sanankoroba, Mali, West Africa, the goal of Agile International is to raise sustainable crops and livestock to feed themselves and their families. As a way to boost their local economy, sale of additional produce will generate income to help cover the educational costs of their children.
While the path to making this happen may seem obvious to some, the challenges ahead are cultural, economic, and educational.  Fatou's plan is to buy more land, empower women, teach them the best farming techniques, and overcome the challenges of a male-oriented society.
She has an amazing story to tell, and we feel honored to be working with her to launch what can only be described as a girl-powered farmers movement in Africa. Join us for this incredible event. It will change your life.
