Before you push record on any video, there are some key steps you should take to ensure your video will achieve the goals you set out for it. Join us on Thursday, December 12 at 11 a.m. Pacific time (2 p.m. Eastern) to hear from our friends at Lights.Camera.Help as we walk through some of those steps.

From sowing the seeds of a good story from the community you plan to record and having thought-provoking questions in hand, to the need for storyboarding and sometimes scripts, to what kinds of equipment are ideal.

You'll learn some of the ins and outs of pre-production to create successful video stories for your nonprofit, charity, or public library.

Register today, as space is limited!

This is the second webinar in the Baby Steps webinar series, which is part of the Baby Steps Competition to engage caregivers, family members, and early childhood educators in answering the question "What do you do with your kids?" We hope to provide organizations and individuals with the skills and know-how to create video stories for this competition and to expand your organization's ability to achieve your mission.
