Course overview

Who should attend:

This course is designed for business owners, digital marketers and internal comms teams that are looking to implement video into their daily workflow. It's also ideal for individuals who are looking to grow engagement with dynamic and agile video moments.

What you'll learn:

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Choose between the different types and styles of videos to shoot
  • Determine what video format suits what social media platform
  • Operate smartphone essential kit, equipment, video recording and editing apps
  • Plan, shoot and edit your own smartphone video
  • Produce your own smartphone video


Filming and editing apps will need to be downloaded before attending the course. While we’ll endeavour to use free apps where possible, some recommended apps require a subscription charge. You’ll be emailed the full list of apps and course requirements once you’ve enrolled.

This workshop welcomes iOS (iPhone) and Android users. However, it does have a specific bias towards iOS and iPhone users given the compatibility of apps used within the course. The iPhone 6 is required as a minimum, and Android smartphones must be no more than 3 years old.

We’ll require confirmation of the smartphone device you intend to use before the start of the course.
