Effective Video Communication

Produce your own quality content

Video Communication & Video Journalism Workshops

We run highly practical, creative workshops to help you develop better video content for your website, social media and internal communications. These can include creating strategic content, through to being a competent mobile video journalist, or 'Mo-Jo'. These skills are essential if you want to grab the attention of an ever resource-diminished media. 

Lots of organisations are now moving towards video press releases instead of emails, which may get ignored.

Our sessions incorporate video production, storyboarding, script-writing, presenting and filming, as well as how to get the best out of a range of apps and tools, such as smartphone accessories and Facebook Live. It shows participants how to have a positive impact in framing ideas and shooting and editing content, even with minimal presentation experience or technical skill.
