This fall, NewTV has added a number of new courses on various media-related topics taught by experts in their fields. Melanie Graham, Digital Content and Social Media Producer at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute will teach two courses on social media. An introduction to digital photography workshop and a class on SmartPhoneography will be taught by a freelance commercial photographer and adjunct faculty member from Montserrat College of Art, Vanessa Ruiz. Plus, there will be a workshop on documentary filmmaking taught by Margo Guernsey, the founder and executive producer at Time Travel Productions LLC and senior producer at McElroy Films LLC.
The first social media class will be geared towards beginners and will focus on how to best utilize Facebook and Twitter for business or personal use. The Social Media Intermediate/Advanced Class will focus on Instagram, LinkedIn, Google+ and content marketing.
Introduction to Digital Photography and Editing is a six-class workshop where participants can learn basic camera skills and Photoshop editing skills. In a separate SmartPhoneography course, Vanessa Ruiz will teach people how to use their smartphones to capture the best possible images and how to share and edit those images using apps.
In a two-session workshop called Shooting Reality, Margo Guernsey will teach participants the basic tools they need to capture the shots required to tell their story in a succinct manner, which is important in this media-savvy world. Participants will learn how to work with non-actors to get great footage without directing them.
In order to attend these exciting classes, you must be a member or a friend of NewTV. For more information on the instructors, registering for classes and membership, visit www.newtv.org.
