Mobile Filmmaking Online Short Course

Course description

Content is king. This course will give you an introduction to the basic technical knowledge you need to shoot video on your mobile. You will learn advanced techniques when shooting, editing and shoot a short video for the web.

After a short introduction to the subject you’ll plan a documentary that you will then go out and shoot. Once you have finished shooting you will edit your footage using apps, and learn how you can share it on social media.
