Smartphone Video Workshop

Learn to produce high quality videos to market your business using your Android phone or iPhone. We have put together a practical, interactive one day workshop where we teach the film making and storytelling techniques we use every day so you can produce your own videos as often as you need.

About the course

According to Ofcom, 71% of adults in the UK own a smartphone and while most of us are used to using them to capture short moments with friends and family, smartphones open a whole world to small businesses looking to generate great looking video content.

This course is designed for anyone looking to put out great looking video content to promote your business, and all without having to pay a professional filmmaker each time. Whether you use an android phone or an iPhone – the theory and knowledge you will pick up is the same. Everything you need to know is taught in a fun, informal way which is easy to understand and accessible to everyone.

Excellent instructor

“Steve was an excellent instructor. It helps that he can connect with his trainees on a personal level so that you feel like you are simply within a group of friends talking.”

Friendly & Approachable

“Steve was very friendly and approachable and obviously very knowledgeable. He kept things simple for us though, which was excellent.”

Film making bug

“I have already begun to apply the training to my business by producing behind the scenes videos for training purposes. I have been bit by the filmmaking bug.

FAQs

Who is the workshop for?

The course is designed for self employed and small businesses. Ideally you will already be doing some of your own marketing, with an idea of your target market, where they ‘hang out’ and the best way to reach them.

Do I need any prior knowledge?

Everything taught is at a simple beginner level, so no prior knowledge is necessary. You will only be taught what is essential to getting started making simple, yet effective video marketing content!

Do I need a specific phone?

No! You can use both Android or iPhone! The newer the phone the better the camera will be, but even smartphones from 4 years ago have good enough cameras!

Do I need anything else for the course?

I recommend preparing yourself by downloading the ‘filmic pro’ app from your phones app store, this is the app we will learn on the day. Other than that, just bring a notepad and pen to make notes. Or if you’re really high tech, an iPad!

Why is editing not included on the course?

I feel that editing isn’t a subject that can be covered in a short period of time. People learn software at different speeds. That’s why I’ve created the online course, it’s an opportunity for people to learn editing at their own pace, go over bits they need more understanding of and really get to know the art of editing. I’ve seen a lot of so called professionals who don’t consider their editing enough, resulting in videos that have silly mistakes that avert the viewers attention from the key message of the video. My online course aims to highlight these mistakes and correct them so your videos are a cut above your competitors!

Will I be as good as Stephen Spielberg by the end of the day?

That is beyond my control, but if you work really, really hard….. probably not!

We are aiming to use simple techniques that sell your business well, that is all!

BONUS Content #1 – 50% off online video editing course

Learn how to edit your videos together at your own pace with the editing series. By learning outside of the workshop you can really take your time to not only get to know the software being taught, but also the art of editing. It is important to develop a good workflow, understanding of storytelling and knowledge of the subtle things that make a promotional video go from looking amateurish to professional.
