1-minute shop videos

Project brief


CSU Monterey Bay

In my Masters of Instructional Design program, I took a course in audio and video production and editing. Assignments focused on targeted skills such as recording quality sound, editing with transitions, and creating interactive videos, among other skills. Each video was limited to 1-2 minutes, requiring careful scripting and editing decisions.

Before this course, I had basic video editing experience with iMovie and Adobe Lightroom but lacked experience in producing scripted projects and recording or editing audio. I chose to learn Adobe Premiere Pro and Camtasia, industry-standard tools for instructional video production. To gain additional practice, I incorporated video work into other program projects.

The solution

Here is a selection of my most effectively produced videos. Most focus on my professional interest in woodworking and designing woodworking training programs, though I also explored other subjects for additional practice.

The results

I produced videos not only for my multimedia course but also for projects in other classes during my master's program, including my final capstone project. Additionally, I later created videos for several prototype training programs at Humanmade.
