Mobile Video Made Easy: Making Great Videos

Are you failing to make the most of video for your business or organisation? Is there lots happening around you but you’ve got no idea how to capture it on mobile? Or perhaps you don’t know how to turn the videos you make into something an audience will want to see?

Create quick, credible videos for your audience on your mobile. We jump into practical advice and training including: thinking like a film-maker, composition, audio, lighting, editing and how to piece together your footage.

The power of video is unparalleled and, as you probably noticed, every channel makes it easy to create and post it. But despite the obvious benefits of video, barely anyone’s actually using it – those who do are shooting with dodgy angles and bad lighting / audio. We want to fix that.

This workshop, led by Alex Mills from burningred / AlexMillsPhotographic and the burningred team, is a fun and highly useful way of learning how to create great quality video with real business benefits.
