- using stock video to add emotion, show what you’re saying, and fill in gaps
- finding the perfect clips
- editing them to tell an awesome story
This class is ideal for brand marketers, newcomers to video, or burgeoning visual storytellers.
“We love Skillshare, especially its vision of unlocking creativity,” says Dissolve’s creative director, Sheldon Popiel. “It meshes nicely with our goal of empowering visual storytellers with footage that helps them tell a better story.
