The primal fear Monkey in your head is in full flight, going totally bananas while being chased by your very own “My Life Is Over Monkey Eating Monster”. Yes folks, we have a new number-one fear in life. It’s hitting the upload button on your first real video!

So let’s cage that Monster right now! At “WeTube” you’ll be in a safe place (sorry no bananas) where you will become an instant Spielberg at creating your own video messages. With only a cell phone you’ll practice making short videos using key techniques critical to catapulting you to a cinematic monster free level. We’ll be focusing on basic principles around lighting, sound, framing of shots and yes, even editing. We’ll only just touch on the scary techie equipment stuff, that way there’s one less monster to worry about. We’ll also look at story structure and what makes good content for videos.

So bring your phone or digital camera and you never know we might just go a little bananas at “WeTube”.

The Skinny: 3 things you will do in this session

  • How to frame a great shot. Pictures not Pixels!
  • How to get awesome sound with out spending a lot of bananas
  • How to edit without software…one less monster to worry about
