In this highly interactive session, we will make a three-minute video from start to finish on land conservation and climate change. We will create talking points for the video, tape the video and then edit the video to demonstrate how editing decisions are made. Participants will learn how to get the best results with the least investment of up-front resources. The session will include tips on staging, directing, recording, lighting and making staff comfortable in front of the camera.

This workshop invites you to take a deep dive into the ways that we think and communicate about land conservation. We will explore assumptions about diversity (geographical, ethnic, economic, etc.) and land preservation. We will examine how conservationists concede rhetorical ground, particularly around climate change work, and how to recapture it. And we will learn from other movements (including the Civil Rights, Women's Rights and Gay Rights movements) and their successes and risks. The workshop will be highly interactive with the presenter giving context, posing questions and framing discussion. Participants should be motivated to experiment, brainstorm and take risks. There are no easy answers to these challenges, which is why we need to confront them head on.
