The secret is in the structuring...

On this informative and fun training session you learn all the tricks of the trade that video companies use every day:

• How to structure, write and deliver your script
• How to conduct a filmed interview
• The golden rules of video and still photography
• How to put movement into still images

• How to edit everything together for professional results
• Developing your video communication strategy … and much more!


1-DAY WORKSHOP — Make a Video with your Smartphone and Laptop

The sessions are designed to help you plan and execute your video project, with hands-on exercises along the way:

SESSION 1.1 Introduction - Living in a video world
In this session we briefly look at the dramatic increase in the use of video in social media; people’s viewing habits and their expectations.

SESSION 1.2 Training – structure, engaging, stakeholders
If your video doesn’t engage, viewers will click away. We show you how to avoid this by structuring your content — and planning your project for best results.

SESSION 1.3 Words - Structuring and writing your script
‘Where to start’ is the most difficult bit. We help you to decide your objectives, clearly identify your target audience and what they will want to see. Then we look at structuring and writing your script.

SESSION 1.4 Sound - Recording your voice-over (coaching)
Natural performers will love this session! If you’re a little more timid, you’ll be pleased to know that you’ll get full support to build your confidence. Even if you’re not doing your own VO, you’ll learn how to direct someone else more effectively.

SESSION 1.5 Music - Finding & mixing copyright-free music
Music can make a tremendous difference to the impact of your video, if used carefully. We show you where to find music and how to stay clear of copyright infringement dangers.

SESSION 1.6 Visuals - Pics & Clips: Golden Tips
How many pictures have you taken and forgotten about? Thousands? Still pictures are invaluable for video-making. Here, you learn golden photography rules and how to take the kind of video footage the pros would envy!

SESSION 1.7 Interviews - The ‘Happy Customer’ interview
A well-filmed interview can create a huge amount of credibility for your message. We show you how to ask the right questions and capture everything on video the way the professionals do.

SESSION 1.8 Editing - It’s all in the edit
Editing is the make or break of any video. We introduce you to easy-to-use editing software and show you everything you need to know to edit and master your video, ready for uploading onto the web.

SESSION 1.9 Social Media - Publishing and distributing
We look at YouTube, QR codes and discuss how you can use your videos to great effect — and how to get more people to watch them.

SESSION 1.10 Review - Questions and Answers
This bit is short because Q&A happens all day — and besides, you’ll be aching to start filming your next masterpiece!


You can simply watch and take notes. But we highly recommend that you join in and do the exercises yourself — so if you want to ‘create as you learn’, you’ll need:

1. Mobile phone — video-capable phone (smartphone is ideal)
2. Your Laptop — (with ideally a minimum of 2Gb RAM)
3. Free video software download (we'll provide this FREE)
4. Free audio software download (we'll provide this FREE)

We’ll send you links to free software a week before your training day.


To help you remember all the useful skills and techniques, you'll receive a superb handy full-colour workbook that tells you everything you need to know.

Book your course TODAY!
