Shoot and Edit Video on your Android Smart Phone
An introduction to video storytelling and easy-to-master editing software using your Android smart phone.
The day is made up of a series of practical exercises designed to get you shooting and editing video on your mobile phone or tablet with confidence. Step by step, the workshop goes from shooting professional-looking interviews to editing simple but effective stories, understanding the importance of shot composition, clip ‘sequences’ and audio. Before the day we will tell you which software to download, and of course
you will need your smart phone on the day.
A PDF ‘toolkit’ will be shared at the end of the workshop with links to relevant apps and equipment.
