Video Production

The following videos were created as part of the ED659 Video Production assignment. The first video I filmed (How to Bottle Beer) was captured using a Nikon Coolpix S3000 digital camera and a tripod.  However, due to some unfortunate camera malfunctions, the other two videos (How to Keg Beer and How to Pour Beer) were captured using my Samsung Galaxy S5 Active smartphone.  Unfortunately I did not have a tripod for my phone, so some of the footage is a little shaky.  All of the videos were shot in a 4:3 ratio (650×480).  All video edits were done in Windows Movie Maker 2012, including the music, narration, transition effects, and text effects.  All of the music used is royalty-free and was found at  Narration was written and voiced by myself using a mic’d headset and the “Record Narration” feature on Movie Maker.  I exported the .wlmp files to .mp4 video files using Windows Movie Maker 2012, then uploaded them to directly onto YouTube.

To give you some background about the videos: Aside from my job at the University of Alaska Southeast – Sitka Campus, I also work part time in the taproom at the local brewery, Baranof Island Brewing Company (BIBCO).  For this video project, I decided to make instructional videos for basic tasks that happen around the brewery with the help of my boyfriend, Adam, who is a brewer and fellow BIBCO employee.  I got written permission to film from the owners before starting this project.  If all goes well, one of the videos might be featured on the BIBCO Facebook page!
