This page is devoted to helping KSRE faculty and staff to shoot and create better videos.
First thing to remember is to identify your targeted audience. Ask yourself, how can I tell them a story in 5 or fewer minutes. This small time frame works best for online audiences. YouTube is successful by using brief videos. If you have more information to tell, simply break it up into multiple videos.
Several important components that make a successful video; keep it short, simple and to the point, utilize good video and audio, tell your story using an array of supportive images and graphics, and stay focused on your message.
