Hands-ON: Video Techniques to Boost Startup Growth Using a Smart Phone

October 5, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Hands-On_Video Techniques Workshop

A series of interactive workshops that support the growth ambitions of local entrepreneurs and start-ups, Hands-ON workshops take place in a small group setting designed to develop the skills needed by early-stage entrepreneurs to successfully start and grow their ventures. By facilitating interactive, “hands on” learning, this series is also designed to help Peterborough and the Kawarthas youth and student community explore entrepreneurship as a career option.

Join the Innovation Cluster Peterborough and the Kawarthas and Pinnguaq for a session that will introduce you to video techniques to integrate into your social media and promotion to boost your online presence using your smartphone.

Having eye-catching video of your work is a great way to connect with your audience. This workshop will focus on photography and videography using mobile devices. We’ll dive into your settings, tools, techniques, tips and tricks to help you get the best footage. We will also explore user-friendly mobile video editing apps, with which you can make quite sophisticated video editing effects.

Through this workshop you will learn:

    • Best settings for your mobile device
    • Techniques and approaches to capture the footage you need
    • Tips and Tricks from what I’ve learned
    • Tools and Accessories that can expand the capabilities of your mobile device
    • A variety of mobile photography and videography editing apps
    • An overview of how to use the mobile video editing app I have used for most of my professional artist work
