Veterans in the Arts

March 19 and 21, 2019

5:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Treetop Gallery (5009 Hwy 140, Mariposa CA)

You’ve got photos, medals and a story to tell–now what?

In this workshop, led by San Francisco-based video producer Amanda Law, learn how to create a short video highlighting you or a loved one’s experience in the service. Each step of the video production process will be covered, from creating a script to conducting a video interview to visual aesthetics, right down to video editing. Creating a short video can feel overwhelming, but with this simple step-by-step process, Amanda will provide the best approach whether you are working with simple equipment and software (iPhone and iMovie) or a DSLR camera with Premiere on your MacBook Pro. With a little time and effort, you will be able to produce a short video tribute with confidence and pride.

This workshop is free of charge to veterans and their families. 

To sign up, please call the Arts Council at (209) 966-3155 or email Alicia Rodriguez at
