The masterclass will be hands-on with examples of what works and what doesn't. There will be practical exercises, so please do bring your smartphone.

We will show you apps that allow you to control your camera settings on your phone and how to operate them. We will use a variety of accessories that are essential in capturing clean audio and allow you achieve steady shots. Many of these practices are alternatives to professional video production techniques and we can advise what you need in order to improve.
