Video Storytelling

With Brooke Shaden

Learn to create beautiful stories to accompany your photography and share your visions. From "about me" videos to short films, we can use more than still frames to tell a story. This class takes you through basic video techniques so that you can bring your images to life by making them move. We will brainstorm video concepts, flow through the how-to of filmmaking, and produce our own short videos that encapsulate our visual style. Videos are perfect for expanding your craft and showing what you can do on social media while grabbing the attention of onlookers. 

  • You will learn how to expand your craft to achieve a more visually immersive experience for yourselves and your viewers.

  • Hands-on work will include brainstorming your favorite visual styles, translating that into video, and shooting your own 30-second to 1-minute long video encapsulating who you are as an artist.

  • Bring to class your camera and tripod


About Brooke Shaden

Brooke was born in March of 1987 in Lancaster, PA, USA. She grew up near the "Amish Country" until attending Temple University. Brooke was photographically born in December 2008 after graduating from Temple with bachelor degrees in film and English. 

She began creating self-portraits for ease and to have full control over the images, and has since grown into a self-portrait fine art photographer. Self portraiture for her is not autobiographical in nature. Instead, she places herself within environments she wishes to explore, where secrets are exposed, impossibilities are tested, and life is questioned in eras beyond our own. 

Brooke works to capture fantastic realities within her photographic frame. By using painterly techniques as well as the square format, traditional photographic properties are replaced by otherworldly elements.
