Keystone Progress is proud to present video training for progressive organizations and union locals in Pennsylvania. Our first training will be held in two locations in August. The first class is:

YouTube 101

So you have a video camera but you’re not sure what to do with it. This training gives you the basics on messaging with online video and then shooting, editing and posting a video online. You start the day getting the low down on messaging and visual storytelling and then you are given an assignment and sent out to create and post your video online. By the end of the day, everyone will have created and posted video online.

Location/Time:

We will hold the training in Philadelphia on August 11 and in Pittsburgh on August 12. The classes start at 10:00 AM and run until 5:00 PM. The Philadelphia location is still being determined, but will be in Center City near public transportation. The Pittsburgh training will be at the United Steelworkers Building, Five Gateway Center, Pittsburgh 15222.

Trainers:
