The Agricultural Training Institute-Regional Training Center XI in coordination with the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist of Davao del Sur, conducted a one-day training on basic video production and editing for the Farmers Information and Technology Services (FITS) Managers/Staff on April 26, 2019 at Arnaldo’s Hotel, Digos City.
A total of nine (9) FITS Centers participated in the training with two (2) representatives from each. The activity aims to develop the skills of the FITS Staff and be able to apply the general concepts in producing a video or multimedia project.
The training focused on the three major steps in the production process The first step is the Pre-production or the planning and development stage which covers scriptwriting, storyboard writing, equipment sourcing, determining the angle and knowing the weather condition of location. Secondly, the Production stage where the actual recording is done. Lastly, the Post-production or the final delivery stage.
Workshop sessions were injected among the participants of which group was expected to produce a short promotional video following the three steps.
Meanwhile, Provincial FITS Manager Evelyn D. Saraum, also remarked that the training is very timely as most FITS Centers are in-charge of documenting and packaging videos/success stories of their nominees for regional and national contests.
Ms. Lucille L. Bocado, Media Production Specialist II of the ATI-RTC XI, was the resource person of the said training.
