Academic Video Creation Workshop

This workshop covers the basics for creating a live narration video recording of a slide deck that is common for academic talks.

There are two main sessions:

  1. Introduction to OBS
  • Covers how to capture video and audio
  1. Basic Editing in iMovie
  • Covers how to edit you recorded clips and export them for distribution

You can find a more detailed agenda here.

The linked PDF for this project contains the written guide for the session that you can follow along with. Also included in the samples directory is some video clips you can use in the editing stage of the workshop.

You can view a playlist for the companion video series I recorded on youtube

If you have any comments, feedback, or corrections to add, email me at or open an issue in the gitlab repo and I will get to it when I can.

Hopefully you find this useful!
