We all know video is essential in marketing our businesses, but still, so many of us don't do it. In this workshop, I will talk with you about what’s holding back in getting started. You will leave with your very own video of yourself, made by you, that you can post to your social media channels.

This is all about covering the basics of recording and editing. No fancy cameras, equipment needed or a degree in filmmaking needed.

This will be a practical workshop where you will record and edit a create a video in the session.

What we will cover in the workshop:

● How to record in 1 take.

● Help you write effective brief so your video is as impactful as possible.

● Quickly cut out "ums", "errs" and other filler words using simple jump cuts.

● What free and low-cost tools you can use to edit your video.

● How to create captions for your videos and why they are essential.

● What video formats to use for different social channels and how to convert for each one.


Mobile phone to record with, and a mac or windows laptop to edit the video, (no chrome books I'm afraid).

If you have a tripod, you may bring it along but not essential.


This workshop is ideal for all businesses from start-ups to those aspiring to grow.
