Movie-Making on Mobiles Workshop

07 September 2016

This workshop is designed to help a business, like you, to tell the story of your work, your projects and most importantly, your people on video in a way which makes the best use of smartphone or tablet cameras, low cost microphones, editing software and other equipment.

We will provide some mics, tripods and laptops on the day, but you should feel free to bring along any film-making equipment such as smartphones or tablets if you already use these for making your own videos – the focus of the session is on best practice for mobile devices.

We would also like you to bring along any ideas you have – regardless of how detailed they might be at this stage – for any film projects you have in mind once the training is completed. This would give us all a chance to discuss how each group could tackle the challenges of story-telling in their own contexts and according to their own timetables.

The day will be split into a series of practical, hands-on exercises:
- planning and preparing to film;
- framing interviews and shooting cutaways;
- shooting “action” sequences;
- tips on good sound;
- video editing on budget software such as iMovie or Kinemaster;
- posting your organisation’s videos online (YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook etc).

The workshop run by the Media Trust already has a large catalogue of online resources, top tips and other help pages such as how to film vox pops, how to set up a YouTube account, guides on financing film projects and much more.

Do feel free to visit their resources page on the website before or after the workshop to get further information.

Lunch will be provided. Free parking is available.
