Attention aspiring videographers! The best way to kick off the new year is to work on your filmmaking skills by attending the Videography Workshop organized and chaired by the authors of this blog – me and Joel – plus our video industry professional and crew member Hannu Uotila, CEO of RocketGang Productions Ltd (some showreel from here). The event is based in Rouen, France, at the Rouen Business School campus situated conveniently within 1h train trip away from Paris. Time: 20-22 March, 2013.

The workshop is designed for doctoral students and more established researchers interested in doing research on video format and aiming to publish in academic conferences and publications – or simply willing to make their research more accessible to wider audiences through video.

The workshop consists of two and a half action-packed days featuring: theoretical and practical insights on academic videography production as well as hands-on videography planning, video shooting and editing under professional supervision. After completing the workshop participants have an in-depth understanding of and an experience of videography production in practice. The objective is to provide participants with necessary skills, essential theoretical insights and practical tools needed for producing high-quality academic research on video.

Participation fees:

Doctoral students EUR 350, faculty and industry EUR 650. The fees cover equipment (HD cameras, editing laptops), materials (readings and slides), one dinner, breakfast, and refreshments.

Applications:

Due to the nature of workshop only a limited number of applicants can be accepted. Candidates with prior videography experience or who can bring their own video camera equipment will have a priority. To apply, send your CV together with one-page motivation letter to me by January 31, 2013. Follow updates and further info from this blog.

The event is sponsored by the Rouen Business School research group Markets, Brands & Experiences.

Join us in pushing the scene!

  1. Will you be documenting this Videography workshop in any form? Perhaps a video blog? I am an workplace researcher in Chicago and have begun experimenting with producing video to document/disseminate research findings. I’m speaking at an interior design educator’s conf this week on this topic. Here’s the presentation.

      Hi Cynthia,
      We’re very sorry for the delay in our response. We have documented the workshop as e-learning materials, but I guess the main part of the workshop was the hands-on production of films we did in teams. I can share the syllabus if you want (just send me an email to joonas.rokka(at)gmail.com). I think we will be doing the workshop again next spring – let us know if you are interested. Thanks for your presentation, excellent to hear you’re working on film as well!

      Cheers,
      Joonas
