Boating Writers International is holding a webinar today, giving tips to those who want to learn more about video presentations.

Public relations specialists know companies seem to have an insatiable appetite for videos, yet many home-schooled video creators recognize they could be doing a better production job.

The webinar, “Video Basics: Improving Your Presentations," will cover cameras, audio, shooting techniques and editing, according to a BWI release.

The webinar will be held at 2 p.m. EDT. It is available free to all BWI members.

Presenting will be BWI member Ed Kukla, who recently combined his experience and love for cinematography and boating into a new venture, Starboard Films. He has worked as a professional cinematographer for more than 20 years and been involved in a variety of projects, including documentaries for the Discovery Channel, the History Channel, A&E and HGTV, as well as marketing and promotional videos for Fortune 500 companies. Kukla has been shooting sailing and boating videos since 1986.

Kukla asks those planning to join the webinar to take a quick look at one of his recent pieces, the mast stepping of Appledore V.
