What people have said..

“I was lucky enough to join Merrin’s recent video workshop. The content was well researched and delivered with humour making it enjoyable as well as extremely useful. We came away with information on hardware, apps and loads of tips for creating current videos with just our smart phones. Result was ability to produce quality content to effortlessly support our branding strategy.

Merrin has a gift for making something daunting seem like an everyday easy must!”

Welcome to the workshop run by Merrin Munroe to learn how to make smartphone videos like a pro. I am going to teach you the smartphone video basics so that you can make better videos from your phone.  We are going to do this over 1 x 4 hour session so that you have time to learn about your phone and camera, plan out and script a video to make, and then make a video. Or two!  You will also get an hour (separate date) to get some content created.

Session 1: 

  • Meet the instructor / where are you at?
  • Learn what makes a good video vs a bad video
  • Learn various video formats
  • Test out your phone
  • Discuss pro tips and some editing terminology
  • We talk about stories and how they can make you stand out
  • Scripts and how to create one, so you can work on it for the next session


Session 2: Consolidation and creation

  • Scripts and shot lists
  • Editing software and how to edit
  • Teleprompters or post it notes
  • Make a video

You will also get a tripod and a lapel microphone to take home with you.
