The Adult and Continuing Education (ACE) Program at Medgar Evers College CUNY is launching a new Web Video Production Certificate Program beginning Monday, June 25, 2012.

“This exciting new program will teach you how to develop, post and market online video content to promote yourself, your original programming, or your business,” said ACE Director Jonathan Bissell, “and we are pleased to have such a talented and experienced instructor to help us launch the program.”

The new Web Video Production Certificate Program will be taught by Independent Television Writer, Producer and Director, Jorge Rivera. Mr. Rivera was awarded as a 2010 Webby Honoree and named in the 2010 Marketing Sherpa Hall of Fame.

“The web video phenomenon is the fastest growing form of self-expression of our lifetime. YouTube reports that its users upload up to 72 hours of video every minute; that´s three days of content every sixty seconds. Reaching billions of viewers worldwide, that kind of access to the world´s audience for the everyday person is unprecedented in history”, says instructor Jorge Rivera.

The program will run from June 25 to September 10 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6 to 8 p.m. and include three parts: In Part 1, Screen Writing, participants will develop a five-page script adaptable for multiple purposes; In Part 2, Video Production, participants will use their own cameras and free-edit software and focus on developing and posting video; In Part 3, Advanced Concepts, participants will focus on social media marketing and audience development.

Upon completion of the course, participants will have developed a short script and well-crafted video, obtained knowledge of how to post their video on YouTube and other venues, and developed a business/marketing plan to make posted content successful, including using social media. The cost of the program is $495.
