Have you been struggling with your video production skills and need assistance? Starting Wednesday July 18, YouTube is offering a 12-week series of free weekly workshops in a Google Plus Hangouts on Air called YouTube Creators Google Plus .
The free workshops start at noon Pacific Time (3pm on the East Coast) and last for 12 weeks, ending October 3. They’re jam-packed with valuable information that might cost hundreds of dollars to obtain anywhere else.
The first three segments will deal with pre-production, then five weeks of production sessions and four weeks devoted to post-production. Viewers can drop in at any time and it isn’t necessary to view them all. A full schedule of session topics can be seen at the YouTube Creators Blog.
Pre-Production sessions will include a product overview, pre-visualization and storyboarding and choosing your equipment. Production sessions will include an introduction of cinematography, lighting, sound, and green screen techniques. Post-Production sessions will delve into basic editing techniques, color correction, sound mixing, developing your audience and using YouTube Analytics.
