Part 3, May 11 - May 26. Strategy to Connect the Narrative Visually; Advance editing, camera, and workflow techniques,

$1500.00 USD



Last of the hands-on workshops in the series, we will develop a solid narrative to bring an emotional story connected to your theme. Each participant will create a 60-second motion story from the methods taught in the workshop. With webinar classroom lectures and scheduled one-on-one mentorship, each participant will get tailored training to their needs and walk away with a finished product.

Join Scott Thompson, the lead on this event, to take your vision to the next level. Scott's work strives to tell the stories of its subjects. He creates photography and motion that is a mix of narrative, life, and authentic imagery that brings to the surface the nuance and beauty of everyday adventures. Personal storytelling serves as the perfect embellishment to his work, enabling the viewer to be transported into the vision created.
