Video Training Series

The Manufacturer’s Resource Center in Pennsylvania implemented a “What’s So Cool About Manufacturing” video contest in 2013. Several video resources were created to help student teams. These videos do a great job of explaining the process of creating a great video, all the way from pre-production to post-production. We think you will find them helpful as you work on your own video.
