Lisa has launched an exciting new project – one that every travel writer should pay close attention to – called the “New York Video School“, and she graciously took time out of her busy day yesterday to let me get the scoop on what it is, and what it means to you.
Why do I think you should pay attention? Because video content is rapidly becoming a requirement for submission to many online travel publications, especially those that are larger media outlets. In short, if you’re not producing your own quality travel video content, you’re going to get left eating the dust of those travel writers that are.
In the interview, Lisa explains that the New York Video School was launched to take the successful Travel Channel Academy program (face-to-face video production instruction in a classroom setting), bring it to an online environment, and make it accessible to anyone who is looking for a start-to-finish video training course.
A great feature is that NYVS is community-based and highly interactive, offering groups you can join, forums to participate in, and blogs to follow, giving you the opportunity to get (and give) feedback and network with other students and instructors.
In addition to the community aspect, I love the fact that it’s super-affordable, you can take only the courses you’re interested in, and you can learn at your own pace, on your own time.
Lisa has a great way of explaining it all, so be sure to listen!
