Ed’s video skills course was great. It was hands-on and he shared some very practical tips. He tailored the workshop to meet our specific needs and all three of us left feeling confident to get out there and start filming and editing!

Learn to shoot video on your phone

This one-day course teaches you how to start recording great quality video and audio with only a small investment in extra equipment such as a tripod, microphone and light.

The afternoon is spent learning how to quickly edit your footage using Adobe Premiere so you are ready to upload your own content to any social media platform. Take control of all your video marketing with this one-day jam-packed course.

 

Our small team were very excited and looking forward to the filming video editing workshop. Ed was very organised, helpful, patient and offered individual attention to each student during the workshop.

I loved the practical hands-on nature of the class and the ability to work independently on editing my video in Adobe Premier. Getting to know my DSLR camera, setting up light and space for filming, learning basic video editing all was very helpful to learn.

I will definitely be using newly gained skills for Digital Fabrics SM promo and marketing videos in near future.

The tips and practical advice Ed gave me during my one-day coaching session have vastly improved the quality of the video I shoot. The day was very practical – by the end, I had shot and edited a short clip that looked far more professional than anything I had produced before.
It was great to be able to ask lots of questions specific to my needs, and move at a pace I was comfortable with. I now feel more confident in my ability to shoot a professional looking video for my online courses.
