21 June 2017 | DLA attends EdTechXEurope

12 May 2017 | New blog post: Learning the Grammar of Video
Video is a language, and just like any other, it has a grammar as its structural architecture. When we learn any new language, the process of understanding its grammar is the key to unlocking potential and fluency. In film and video, shots are the words; sequences the clauses and sentences; moves, cuts, and mixes the punctuation. We can use the building blocks of video grammar to express the past as well as the present and to develop styles and genre.
