Are you looking to add more video to your business’s social media output? Perhaps the business wants to create videos to communicate more effectively with your teams?

You are not alone. Video has exploded in recent years.


And with more people than ever before working from home it’s vital that we find efficient ways to connect and engage with our colleagues and customers.


Views of branded video content have also increased by 258 per cent on Facebook. And on Twitter, a video Tweet is now six times more likely to be retweeted than a photo Tweet.


But contemplating the cost and time of video production might make you hesitant about joining this growing trend. It may even make you tremble.

Well, hesitate and tremble no more – the answer is already in your pocket.


Your smartphone is a mobile production studio capable of making high-quality videos that will raise your communication game and compel your audience.


You just need to learn how to use it to its full capability.


And that’s where we come in.


In this interactive online course, Anna Brees, a familiar face you will recognise from BBC and ITV news, guides you through everything you need to know about making videos that not only look professional but make people stop scrolling and watch.

"I’ve just completed the online course which explained how to film and edit my own videos. It was a really engaging course with lots of new information in it, like the most important things to consider when setting up a shot. Also the apps that I can download to use for filming, editing, and for autocue.

I’m feeling more confident now, especially about knowing how to engage with the audience."
