The only workshop where we ask you to ‘turn on’ your mobile and laptop!

Slide9

We’ve tried to make this workshop as ‘hands-on’ as possible, giving you a chance to develop your video-making skills in a supportive environment.

The day starts with an introduction and discussion on the rise of video and why so many videos are far from professional looking …

 

Written exercises to help sharpen your script-writing skills

Slide8

All the best videos start with planning and a well-drafted script. We show you how to write engaging scripts to create a documentary-style voice-over that people will want to watch.

You’ll also be guided on the ‘dos and don’ts’ of recording your professional voice-over … and then finding and adding copyright-free music to give your presentation a real lift!
