Android Video Pro – Learn to make videos with your phone
The Android Video Masterclass
Discover how to shoot, edit, and share broadcast-quality videos on your phone in a single day on Thursday March 30. You’ll be able to capture classy interviews, vibrant vox-pops, or a polished package using nothing except the phone – and see the hottest apps or gadgets that fully release your creative mojo.
Dashboard Media has helped hundreds of journalists or marketing peeps get their groove on since 2011. This is the original (and best) course of its type. Come and find out why.
These sessions are led by Alex Pell, former tech editor of The Sunday Times. Each one has no more than a dozen delegates and runs from 9.30am – 5pm (ish)
Early-bird price of £299 (+VAT) on sale until Friday March 03
What you will learn:
- Create a compelling video narrative
- Plan for the shoot and learn to recce a location
- Avoid catastrophe by controlling battery life and storage
- Get rock-solid footage by gripping the handset securely
- Compose elegant shots and ensure focus is locked
- Light up your subjects with app-settings or accessories
- Capture crystal-clear audio and discover mobile mics
- Broadcast live with Facebook or Instagram
- Edit on the phone with transitions, voiceover, or titles
- Publish straight to YouTube or share with colleagues
“I have never before come away from a training course so excited. Android Video Pro totally nailed it”

Freelancers go VAT-free
Freelancers can get 20% off by asking for a promo code but not with other offers, such as early-bird discounts. Sorry.
Which Android phones are good enough for this course?
Most handsets from the last 2-3 years are fine. However, we do suggest you install the free FiLMic Evaluator app before you book a place as this will check if your specific phone is able to run one of the apps you will be trained on. If you are unsure, please get in touch, as there are alternative options.
Can I bring my iPhone handset?
Sorry. This masterclass is specific to Android. We do, however, have an iPhone version of the same course here
What about an tablet?
Yes. Some tablets are fine but if you want to do so, please get in touch to ensure we bring the correct accessories
Do I need to bring anything other than my phone and a smile?
Nope. You’ll be given one of our Mobile Video kits to work with on the big day
Does experience level matter?
No way. Many folks have never shot a frame of video, while others have made their own films. It's all good
How large are the groups?
Each session typically has two trainers and up to 12 delegates. People work in pairs but plenty come on their own
Will you run this course on an in-house basis?
Yes. And we’ll happily come to most locations. Let's talk about how to make this work for you
