Unleash your inner Spielberg with the help of the OIPC’s latest free webinar!
Ontario is home to many invasive plant success stories, but we often struggle to communicate our message in an engaging and memorable way. Using video to share your stories can help you take that Phragmites eradication project to the next level! Join us on October 5th as our guest speaker will help you become the Ron Howard of Hogweed, the Scorsese of Scots Pine. No videography experience is needed! To register, please follow the link below and use the password “83DZGXqw”.
In this webinar, participants will learn how to get started creating compelling video content for social media and other purposes, even if you have no prior experience and nothing but the phone in your pocket.  We will cover both the creative and technical aspects of video creation.  Topics will include things like how to use a storytelling approach, shooting techniques, and how to make the most use of the technology that you have available to you, even if you are not technically savvy. There will be something to learn for both beginners and more experienced video creators.
