Event description

Description

Video is now integral to marketing and communications. It gives the chance to tell your story in a way that grabs attention unlike any other media. As digital marketing and social media moves towards film and visual content, it is vital to be able to create eye-catching films to share with your audiences. With the advances in mobile technology, it is now possible to capture great quality film on a device that you carry around in your pocket, you just need to know how!

Learn the skills needed to plan, script, record and edit professional videos on a small budget in this practical workshop. Telling your stories in film will help raise your profile, promote your work and create buzz around your campaigns.


Equipment We will provide some mics, tripods and laptops on the day, but you should bring along any filmmaking equipment such as smartphones or tablets – the focus of the session is on best practice for mobile devices (iPhone and Android).

At the end of this training you will:

  • Understand how to plan and prepare before filming and how to work with lighting, sound, picture, background and equipment
  • Learn the theory behind framing interviews and shooting cutaways and action sequences
  • Get started on cheaply editing your footage into user-friendly videos for YouTube and other websites

How to prepare:

It is important that you take a couple of steps before the workshop to get your phone or tablet ready for making films:

  • Video takes up quite a lot of space on a smartphone and you may have to shoot up to 10 min of video during the morning session, that’s around 1GB of memory. So it would be very useful if you can clear space on your phone either by deleting unwanted video or downloading it off your phone onto a hard drive or your Cloud account.
  • If you have a hands-free device for your phone, do bring this with you ­as they make really useful lapel microphones for recording interviews.
  • Ensure your phone battery is charged and/or bring a charger cable with you.

Who should attend?

The course if designed for charity/voluntary/community organisation staff engaging with audiences, participants and service users (e.g. marketing, comms, PR, press, fundraising, volunteers). It would benefit those who want to make videos for projects/output work, record testimonials, vox pops, case studies and success stories to raise awareness, campaign and promote their charity. Or those who need to learn the basics, have limited budget and little/no experience, and are looking for a practical hands-on introduction.

VAT will be charged at 20%
