iPhone Shoot and Edit 2018

Shoot and Edit Video on your iPhone or iPad

Back by popular demand: an introduction to video storytelling and easy-to-master editing software using your iPhone or iPad. The day will begin with coffee/reception from 9.00 am and the workshop will start at 9.30 am.

The day is made up of a series of practical exercises designed to get you shooting and editing video on your mobile phone or tablet with confidence. Step by step, the workshop goes from shooting professional-looking interviews to editing simple but effective stories, understanding the importance of shot composition, clip ‘sequences’ and audio. Before the day we will tell you which software to download, and of course
you will need your iPhone or iPad on the day.

A PDF ‘toolkit’ will be shared at the end of the workshop with links to relevant apps and equipment.

Participants will learn how to:

• Shoot and edit professional-looking interviews, understand shot framing, background, audio and lighting. Includes tips for interview and question style

• Use ‘vox pop’ techniques to create testimonial videos and bring events to life 

• Learn how to create a short ‘explainer’ videos using images or clips (valuable for explaining issues or introducing a product or service)

• Understand the principles of video storytelling using sequences of clips, and combine them with an interview to create a short story ‘package’

• Learn tricks and tricks for using editing apps on iPhone/iPad (or Android mobiles/tablets)
