Final Cut Pro X: Audio Basics
Wednesday, March 21, 2018 - 7:00pm

Learn how sound works in Final Cut Pro X as well as the basics of editing and mixing the sound and music you’ve acquired for your video production. Sound is more important than video for all but the most cinematic productions. Learn how to make yours clear and audible so it serves your production. Lecture w/ overheads and Q&A.

Recommended that you take Camera Basics: Sound Recording first.

General Orientation
Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - 6:30pm

Curious about KDRT, DCTV or even DJUSD Channel 17, and want to learn how Davis Media Access can help you?

Plan to attend one of our General Orientations!

Any potential volunteers please come to one of these, held monthly.  They last about an hour and include the history of Davis Media Access, a tour of the facilities, and information on how to get involved. 

Anybody is welcome to attend an Orientation, but to use the facility for your own productions you have to live, go to school, or volunteer at an organization in Davis, California.    Davis Media Access does not charge for the use of our equipment and facilities and attending a General Orientation is the first step for getting involved.

Storytelling for Personal Discovery
Saturday, April 14, 2018 - 6:30am

This two-day workshop will teach participants to use digital tools to tell a personal narrative, and to connect with others through the exchange of these stories. Using a story circle format, participants will develop a personal story to share, and learn to set the story to a combination of images and audio, culminating in a participant screening.

Storytellers will also have the opportunity to participate in a separate public screening and discussion of their experiences using this process. The separate public screening and discussion event, Discover Self, Build Community: Digital Storytelling as Personal Narrative, is April 25th at the Davis branch library. Participants in this Storytelling for Personal Discovery Workshop are not required to screen their films publicly, but encouraged to do so.

This workshop will accommodate eight participants. Participants must commit to and attend the full time period for both days. Thanks to the City’s generous support, the workshop is free for all participants.

Participants must be aged 18 or older

Day One: April 14th, 8:30 am - 4pm

Day Two: April 15th, 9am - 4pm

Location: Mary L. Stephens Branch Library in Davis
