Class Alert : A to Z of web-based video publishing

Ken_bootcamp_camera

For a couple of years we have been talking online about how short video's would take over ... but so far not many peope have succeeded in creating good quality web videos (you can find the occasional amazing got-to-share-this-with-a-friend type video on vimeo or youtube) I myself would love to learn how to make such videos. As far as I know, my camera has a video function, so it's really just a matter of how to go about creating the short video, like the actual setting up of the camera, then the post-processing and editing of the clips I have recorded. 

So i'm thrilled Erin (who is coming to Singapore in May to teach two Bloesem classes about blogging and social media) is bringing her emmy-award winning husband, Kenneth, with her to Singapore so he can teach us the basics of web-based video publishing.

Kenneth Loechner is an Emmy-award winning (yes, it deserves being mentioned twice) filmmaker and editor currently living in the Midwest following a successful stint in Los Angeles working to shape the visual stories of internationally-acclaimed clients like Sony, Apple and Lucky Brand Jeans. Always willing to share his piece of the pie, he now teaches fellow creatives how to navigate film and video production to better communicate their passions.

Ken-ering

Once you have attended Kenneth's class and are equipped with the basic film making skills, the possibilities will be endless. Whether filming product lookbooks for your shop or family videos for your blog, Ken Loechner will walk you through A to Z of web-based video publishing. Learn the right tools to purchase on a budget, how to produce and shoot your first film and smart tricks of the trade along the way. Designed to be hands-on, engaging and inspired, you'll come away from this 4-hour course ready to get behind the camera and share your point of view with the online world. 

If you currently have a camera setup you love, bring it along! There will be plenty of time for personal attention and personalized tips along the way.

A great class for everyone from students to business owners, videos are a great way to get your ideas and thoughts across. Zara told me that being a recent graduate herself, she remembers many of her classmates making videos for presentations because they were the best way to best represent what was going on in our minds. Actually speaking about your concept says alot, pictures as well, but a video, it can really convince!

(Also, making videos to show during presentations alleviated alot of the nerves we had for public speaking.)

We had some renovations...

Display_1

We all need some renovation once in a while I had mine when opening the Bloesem Space and typepad did last week ... they were attacked by a hacker which caused both my blogs and many others in the world to be down for almost a week ... all they could do was put some serious kit on their server walls!! And it worked ... we are all live and on our feet again.

We get lots of questions about the displays and furniture in the Bloesem Creative Space. So here's a little about them. There was alot of doing-it-myself, especially for the shelving in the studio. I spotted this bag of small wooden sticks in the art store one fine day and thought they would create an amazing display and create some kind of dimension to otherwise boring planks of wood. A bottle of wood glue, a plank of wood and a few bags of wooden dowels later.. tah dah! We have our one of a kind shelves and wooden displays we use throughout the Bloesem space.

Don't these trays from Fine Little Day look wonderful on them!

Another DIY project (and now product, which you can find on Bloesem.co) are the leather straps together with our trusty wooden dowels (aka. wooden rods). They have come in very handy both for display as well as storage. Other than hanging items, we have used them to secure mats so that they don't all fall down and create a big mess. 

Our display tables are held up by our favorite master and master trestles we have mentioned here.

And our shelves are none other than the well-known ikea ekby shelves. We love the clean look they give and also how they some what match our trestles.

 Vintage copper from the Netherlands that I used to collect when in Amsterdam. Ideal for props in photo-shoots ... if you want to see more pop by our space in Tiong Bahru! It would be lovely to meet you ~ Irene xoxo

We've got you covered

Bloesem Living | Røros Tweed blankets

Even tough - in my part of the world - spring has kicked in, a super cool blanket is always a yes! Just came across Norwegian brand Røros Tweed and love the diversity of prints and colors on their plaids.. working together with different Scandinavian designers like Anderssen & Voll (also designers for Muuto) makes this happen. Røros Tweed has been around since 1940 and their designs are made of wool from Norwegian sheep.. pure, environmental-friendly and just plain gorgeous! Have a great easter monday! x Christine - House of C
