Short Video Creation Training

Project Details

What We Need
  • Training on how to create video content for web and specific social media channels, including Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube
  • List of recommendations and best practices for shooting a video
  • Instructions for how to post videos to respective social media platforms
What We Have In Place
  • I am the dedicated contact for our organization and I am available pretty much as needed for this initiative. I have a working knowledge of Lightworks and will likely be using this software to develop the Youtube and training content that we will be producing. Additional tips & techniques within Lightworks and Youtube would be very useful, but knowledge of actual hardware for audio video production is where we have a real need. What recording equipment is ideal for semi-pro quality production?
How This Will Help
This project will save us $2,397 , allowing us to devote more hours to actual content to further the knowledge of our personnel and client base.

In a Covid-19 climate, we will be relying heavily on video for training, volunteer recruitment and for disseminating the knowledge and services we provide to the community.

Director of Volunteer Services

Our Mission

The Crossroads House mission is to fundamentally change the way people prepare for and participate in the dying process. By offering education before, 24 hour residential care during and grief support after death, all free of charge, we can provide residents and families with a positive and nurturing end of life experience.

What We Do

We care for residents who have a three month or less prognosis. We provide 24/7 residential care without charge and without insurance reimbursement or government aid. The majority or our care (which includes physical, emotional and spiritual) is provided by trained volunteers.
