Michelle Alvarado and Henry Kim are spearheading one of our newest courses, Science to Social. Leveraging some of their work on higher production films, they will bring you the essence of what it takes to design a story with a strategy behind it, and make the most of common video apps and tools to bring your ideas to social media and to your intended audience.
Part 1 - Social Media Campaign Strategy and Story Development - Do you have a project or initiative that you want the community or stakeholders to get on board with? Then consider this course. You will walk away with an outreach strategy, a storyline, and specific content to create. The value to do this with a marketing company is $1,500+, so $200 is a great deal.
Part 2 Hands-on Production and Video Editing Technique - Are you ready to raise awareness visually with short or longer videos? Bring your phone or tablet and learn some video techniques to show a more meaningful story with visual artistry. You will walk away with a short video and the skills to produce more videos with ease.

Its rare that someone finds their passion at such a young age and follows it dogmatically, unwilling to be diverted by adolescent whims. But just like her images, Michelle stayed focused. She went to USC Cinema and landed a job at National Geographic, Monterey Bay Aquarium, and Showtime. Since 2005, shes run Wahoo Films with a talented team. Michelles genuine passion for the environment and salmon is evident in the videos she produces. Michelle has taught numerous workshops including at Salmon Recovery Conference, COCC - SBM, BendFilm and Swivel.
