Making a Video of your Conference or Seminar When you have invested so much time and effort in a conference or seminar, particularly if high profile speakers have come from overseas or if many of your potential audience are unable to attend, it's quite normal to want to create a video record of the event.
But, typically, a 2-day conference or seminar will contain between 12 and 16 hours of presentations. Will anybody actually want to watch a video even half that length?
The dynamic of a conference or seminar is completely different to that of a video. The two media work in different ways.
So there are a number of key questions you need to ask:
We can then help you devise a approach for your conference or seminar video that will succeed.
The Day of the Conference
The Finished Production
Converting a seminar or course to e-learning, interactive CD-ROM or interactive video DVD is a rather different process.
Assuming the speaker is available and won't be flying back to the US or wherever, our scriptwriter would attend the course or seminar as a delegate. We might also provide a simple video camera to record the event, but purely for reference. We would also ask for a copy of all the Powerpoint slides, handouts and other course material.
We would then write a script, which would show exactly how the interactive multimedia CD-ROM or e-learning would work - how we would convert course activities into interactive exercises, which elements we would ask the speaker to present, which sections we would replace with animated graphics or new documentary or drama video, voiceover narration and so on.
Once the speaker / course leader and yourself are happy with the concept, we would video the speaker in a neutral location. This could take the form of an interview or pieces to camera, for which we could provide teleprompt if necessary. This controlled situation, away from a live course or seminar, allows the speaker to redo their shots until they are 100% happy with them.
We then build the rest of the e-learning or multimedia material around this core.
