Media Education


Teachers Resource: Filmmaking Tutorials On Lynda.com

The internet is PACKED with resources to learn the ins/outs of filmmaking and digital media creation. One of our personal favorites is Lynda.com. Lynda is loaded with in-depth tutorials taught by professionals on everything from financial forecasting, to how to Skype, to anger management(!). We think teachers will find the filmmaking tutorials particularly useful for the classroom: some of our favorites are iMovie Essential TrainingAudio for Video, and Lighting a Video Interview.

The best part? All of the tutorials are free with your Salt Lake City Public Library card! Just go to the Library database resource website, click on Online LearningLynda.com, enter your library card information, and BOOM, you’re off to the races learning new filmmaking skills.
