16:30 Break (15 minutes)

16:45 Antti Verkasalo (Photoverk): Pro tips for maximizing the quality of your video material

Beyond just pressing record. This session will concern the fundamentals of video photography, e.g lightning, framing, focus and other ways to ensure and improve the quality of your acquired material. We have a professional videographer informing us about best practices and answering specific questions.

18:00 Break (15 minutes)

Podcasting is a creative, engaging, and fun medium for communicating ideas, but we all know that sitting behind a microphone can be a daunting prospect. Did you ever think you would like to start your own podcast but do not know how? Or perhaps you already have one and want to take it one step further. During this workshop we will explore the process of planning, recording, editing, and promoting a podcast episode.
