With the enormous development of smartphone technology, now every organisation can access high quality video by simply using a smartphone.

Our video training will show you how to film, edit and upload great footage to bring your website or social media to life. Delegates will use their own smartphone or tablet and we’ll show you all the apps and techniques you need.
