Beeston Media have expanded into offering a new smartphone video training course for those who want to improve their filming techniques and be able to create social media content independently. The day course - run by Hamish, Penny and Dion - can be personalised to fit your needs in creating video content across all platforms through the power of a smartphone.
Things you can expect to cover on the course:
o Choosing a story and planning the shoot
o Filming equipment – (setting up your phone, what else you need - microphones, tripods, gimbal etc)
o On shoot dos / don'ts
o Techniques to give your videos a professional looking finish
o Filming interviews
o Getting the perfect shot – including shot sizes, positioning the camera, framing, lighting, sound, sequences and backgrounds
o An introduction to editing
Crucially, we aim to help you produce a useable short video for social media at the end of every course. Courses last one day and are typically run for groups of 2-3 or 5-6 people.
"It was really fun and so informative! It has definitely inspired us to want to get out and do some of our own now and I definitely feel confident around the filming elements."
Emma Henry, UK Events Manager, University of Bristol
"Beeston Media’s training course gave us an invaluable overview of filming on our mobile phones and subsequently editing them on Premiere Pro. It was an excellent introduction, giving us the confidence to learn and experiment in our own time afterwards and we’re now able to produce short and effective films for the University’s social media channels."
Philippa Walker, Media Team, University of Bristol
"Beeston Media smartphone video training has given our small team the skills necessary to film, edit and produce short impactful films for our social media channels. The training from Hamish, Penny and Dion was excellent and we would not hesitate to recommend them to others."
