Video biography workshops slated for October

Tucson’s Family Legacy Video, Inc., a pioneer in the personal video biography field, is holding two unique video biography workshops in Tucson in October, 2008.

From October 17 to 19, a three-day workshop entitled “Create Your Own Video Biography” ushers attendees through the process of creating their own family history video projects. Participants will learn how to draft questions, light, shoot and conduct interviews and prepare for editing.

On October 20, Family Legacy Video presents “The Business of Video Biographies.” This one-day workshop is aimed at budding video biographers interested in starting their own businesses. Topics ranging from the kinds (and costs) of video gear required, to marketing and pricing services will be discussed.

Family Legacy Video president Steve Pender hosts the two workshops, which will also feature presentations by the Phoenix production team of Dan Crapsi and Ginny Temple and Tucson-based marketing expert Dan Blumenthal. Pender is an award-winning scriptwriter, video editor, director and producer with over 29 years of experience. He is the author of the Family Legacy Video Producer’s Guide.

Discounted “early bird” workshop registration is being offered until July 28, 2008. The final registration deadline is October 4, 2008. Complete workshop details are available on the workshop page of the Family Legacy Video Web site or by calling 520.743.4090.
