SHARE YOUR UNIQUE STORY!

USE THE POWER OF AN IPAD TO TELL YOUR AUTHENTIC NARRATIVE! LEARN HOW TO DESIGN CREATIVE VIDEOS!

Tell your authentic story: with digital video! The "Authentic Berkeley" project will teach students how to create unique video narratives using iPads provided to them. You will be mentored by a professional film and video artist to help you achieve your authentic stories that need to be told! During the Spring 2015 semester you will attend a 2-hour class, once a week (held in the evening), with a Berkeley Art Studio artist. You will be taught narrative development and basic digital sound/photo/video production on an iPad using apps like iMovie, Pinnacle, SloPro, and iMotion. Students will learn how to create digital stories that reflect their journey to Cal, experiences as Berkeley students, and their individual imaginations! The digital stories created will be featured at authenticberkeley.tumblr.com and as public art on monitors in the new Student Union.
