Attendees will watch and participate in the creation of a live-action video, from planning and scripting to shooting, editing, and uploading footage. The demonstration will focus on best practice and simple strategies for capturing well-lit footage with clear audio either using the Idea Lab studios or personal equipment (e.g. cell phone).
