In video production, the integration of artificial intelligence (AI) has become increasingly pervasive, reshaping every stage of the creative process. From conceptualization to distribution, AI-driven technologies are revolutionizing content creation, offering unprecedented efficiency, creativity, and scalability. In this course we explore how AI is transforming video production across key areas, including scripting, storyboarding, audio manipulation, editing and colour grading.

Day One: AI Scripting, Storyboarding & Image Creation

AI Scripting

AI-driven scripting tools leverage natural language processing (NLP) algorithms to generate compelling video scripts tailored to specific genres, tones, and target audiences. These tools analyze vast databases of existing content to identify narrative structures, dialogue patterns, and thematic elements, enabling creators to streamline the scriptwriting process and generate engaging content more efficiently. Additionally, AI-generated scripts can be customized based on audience preferences, optimizing viewer engagement and retention. We will focus on ChatGPT and some dedicated AI scripting tools.

AI Storyboarding & Image Generation

AI-powered storyboarding tools use computer vision algorithms to transform textual scripts into visual storyboards, automating the pre-visualization process and enhancing collaboration among creative teams. By analysing scene descriptions and character interactions, these tools generate storyboard sketches, shot compositions, and camera angles, providing a visual blueprint for the production process. The challenge is that it is hard to replicate common character or style across every frame of the storyboard. We will show you how to improve commonality across frames by using detailed descriptions but this is still not an exact science. We will be showing you how to use Microsoft Bing, Canva and other options.

Day Two: AI Video Generation, Filming, Lighting & Sound Recording

Video Generation

AI video generation tools have advanced significantly, offering a variety of features to create, edit, and enhance videos using artificial intelligence.

In this course we will give you an overview of most popular options and demonstrate their capabilities.

As there are costs associated with each of these packages, you will need to decide, after evaluation them, which you want to use in your organisation.

Once you have made this decision, we can provide a detailed 1-day course on each of these packages.

Synthesia, which is popular in corporate environments for creating training videos, marketing content, and internal communications. Its ability to generate realistic AI avatars that speak in multiple languages makes it appealing for global companies.

Lumen5, which is a favourite among marketers and content creators who need to quickly transform blog posts and articles into engaging video content. It’s especially popular for social media marketing.

Canva, originally renowned for its graphic design capabilities, has expanded its offerings to include robust video generation and editing tools. Canva's video generation capabilities are designed to be accessible to users of all skill levels, making it a popular choice for individuals and businesses looking to create high-quality video content quickly and easily.

Practical Human Production Skills

After looking at AI video generation, we will spend the afternoon looking at the human elements: how to film using your smartphone or video camera, framing, composition, lighting and sound recording.

Day Three: AI-assisted Audio Manipulation & Video Editing

AI Audio Manipulation

AI-based audio manipulation tools utilize machine learning algorithms to enhance sound quality, optimize audio tracks, and synchronize audio with visual elements. These tools can automatically remove background noise, adjust volume levels, and apply spatial audio effects, resulting in immersive and polished audio experiences. Furthermore, AI-driven voice synthesis technologies enable the generation of synthetic voices for narration, character dialogue, and voice-over work. In this course we will be taking a close look at Adobe Audition & Podcast.

AI Video Editing

Adobe’s new AI tools for video editing in Premiere Pro significantly streamline and enhance the creative process. These tools reduce the time and effort required for complex tasks like reframing, object removal, audio enhancement, and transcription, allowing video editors to focus more on their creative vision. We think that these new capabilities will blow you mind,

For those who prefer using DaVinci Resolve we will instead look at their new suite of AI editing tools.

Life Long Learning Option

As AI continues to evolve, as we know it will, we also offer a lifelong learning option. This consists of a monthly 30-minute video to keep you up to date with all of the latest developments.
