New Media Skills 2: Talent Skills


Course Information

We’ve all seen it – the employee in a local advertisement looking like a deer in the headlights. Nervous, wooden, and memorable for all the wrong reasons. Promotional videos or advertisements can be incredibly effective for promoting local businesses and “talent” training can help you make sure that your videos are memorable for the right reasons.
