“Hands-on Introduction to PC Video Editing,” 4 sessions starting March 7. Click here for flier.
(More in-depth than Tom Nash’s new Windows 10 video editing class offered in February.) Says Tom: “Your choice: bore your audience with unedited video, put your video clips away and never show them, or learn to edit and amaze your audience! Once you learn the basics in this introductory class using Corel VideoStudio, editing is fun, and your friends and family will love you for it!” Use Video Lab PCs or bring your own PC laptop equipped with Video- Studio X7 or later. Taking the full four-session class is strongly recommended. $20 for members, $35 for nonmembers (includes club membership).

“Telling Stories with Your Smartphone,” 4 sessions starting April 3. Click here for flier.
Professional videographer Scott Marvel (left), a Village resident and producer-director of Village TV’s “Thrive” television series, says: “If you have a smartphone, I want to teach you how to tell as story with your camera. You’ll produce your own video in class, learning to work quickly, making every shot count. You’ll also learn how to edit on your smartphone – bring your clips into the editing program, review them, and make a rough-cut of your movie. Then re-arrange your clips for maximum impact and eliminate unwanted footage. Finally, add titles, music, and narration. Quickly create and share a short, interesting video.” $20 for members, $35 for nonmembers (includes club membership). For more information, contact Scott Marvel at email@example.com.
