One thing to keep in mind about this is that if you're planning to publish the video online, the screen will fairly small, which means the quality of the recording does not need to be very high. In practical terms, this means you can make an effective video using just a cheap webcam. Also, something else to keep in mind is that many nicer cell phones and some digital cameras can record short video clips, and depending on your goals this may be all you need.<br /> <br /> If you are having trouble finding a camera, you may be able to borrow one from the [http://www.spnn.org St. Paul Neighborhood Network] (For more info, watch [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=huXRjOsvqN4 this video]). SPNN requires that you become a member (fees range from $20 for limited income to $110 for a non-Minnesota resident) and that you take a certification class before checking out equipment (fees range from $10 - $40). They also have some restrictions on what you can film. SPNN does have a lot of nice equipment, however, and they offer a lot of classes and support, so membership may be something to look into even if you do have a camcorder at home.<br /> <br /> Once you have some raw footage, the next step is editing it into a finished product. There are a variety of ways to do this, including the old-fashioned double-VCR method. What we're going to show you today is how easy it can be to quickly edit and publish digital video using Windows Movie Maker, which comes free with Windows and should be available on most PCs. As a side note, if you have access to a Mac, many people prefer using iMovie, so that's something to look into as well.<br /> <br /> Finally, we're going to show you what to do once you have a finished video. Perhaps the easiest way to make your video available to a wide audience is to publish it online, and perhaps the easiest website to use (both for the publisher and the viewer) is [http://www.youtube.com YouTube]. YouTube does require that you join before posting, but all that requires is an email account. Also, if you're part of a 501(c)(3) organization, you can apparently sign up for a special [http://www.youtube.com/nonprofits &quot;nonprofit&quot; membership]; they're also talking about giving away cameras, so you may want to look into that. And one more side note: anything newsworthy can also be posted to the [http://www.tcdailyplanet.net/ Twin Cities Daily Planet] for a little extra visibility.<br /> <br /> We're going to demonstrate the process for you now, and hopefully by the end of the workshop you'll all have chance to record, edit and upload a video to YouTube yourselves.<br /> <br /> ===Demonstration===<br /> Go through the process of uploading a video.<br /> <br /> ===Participation===<br /> *Possible questions:<br /> **What's your favorite thing about St. Paul?<br /> ** &lt;other ideas?&gt;<br /> <br /> {{Template:This is a wiki}}</div> 71.215.242.106 http://pages.e-democracy.org/index.php?title=YouTube:_The_Power_of_Video&diff=2111 YouTube: The Power of Video 2007-10-15T14:19:20Z <p>71.215.242.106: /* What is it? */</p> <hr /> <div>{{Template:Outreach-Directory}}<br /> <br /> This is a draft outline of our workshop for Monday, October 15 at Rondo Library.<br /> <br /> '''Please make suggestions, and feel free to edit this page.'''<br /> <br /> For this workshop, it seems reasonable to ask that all participants be age 13 or older.
