Click Away Conference Workshop: Create Short Form Travel Videos With Sony Artisan Me Ra Koh

Join Sony Artisan Me Ra Koh and her husband, Brian Tausend (award winning photographer and cinematographer), for this workshop where they will teach you how to create and produce fun, engaging short form travel videos that will take you around the world!

Me Ra's family spends at least half the year abroad, filming and creating in this new and exciting space. They will walk you through their (absolutely necessary) gear for filming on the road, and how this gear differs from when we are filming at home. You’ll learn hands-on the different types of travel content to create whether your goal is to gain a bigger audience, brand partners or clients. Storytelling techniques and tips will also be discussed and practiced, including the anatomy of telling a travel story, how to get great audio without the fuss, strategies behind music, a bit of editing advice that they’ve learned the hard way, plus fun tools and techniques to make your travel content stand out!

You being on camera is also a key piece to successful travel videos. They will share some of their most embarrassing stories of being on camera for Disney, abroad and live talk shows with ALL the lessons they’ve learned, so you can be confident and engaging (especially when you’re tired from travel and overwhelmed because your bank account is dwindling way too fast.) Be prepared to leave with all the pieces of footage for your own travel video! And be prepared to practice being on camera! This session is about having fun while you learn, as well as feeling safe to get out of your comfort zone and try new things!
