Video is an increasingly important part of any social media strategy. For many businesses it is the best performing form of content, but traditionally video is expensive and time consuming to create. However, the constant improvements in smartphones means this high barrier to entry is now gone. The improvements in tech and apps, alongside the changing way people consume video (increasingly viewed on mobile) means that smartphone video production is an essential in-house skill.

This course will transform your in-house video production capabilities so you can create high quality video content at a fraction of the cost and time of traditional video. This type of efficient video production can be used for anything from filming interviews, covering events or creating behind the scenes video content.  

Who should attend?

This workshop is for anyone who wants to confidently plan, shoot and edit short videos for social media using only a smartphone.

"I thoroughly enjoyed the Smartphone for video course! The trainer was clearly very knowledgeable and offered great advice, tips and guidance. The structure of the course allowed for a good balance of learning, seeing real life examples, and putting the teaching in to practice. I left the course feeling very confident, engaged and inspired, wanting to put all my new tips in to practice straight away."
