Learn how to make your own video films
“This was a super course and for someone who has never put together a digital video before I have now made my first video which I will upload this evening – VERY excited! And REALLY excited about doing more videos in the future. Thank you to Eden Lighthouse (Nigel and Jaki) for running the course. Highly recommended!!!”
One-day video workshop
Join us on our one-day training workshop and you’ll learn all the basics of creating your own effective short films. The workshop is designed to encourage you to get out there and try it for yourself. We’ll also show examples of how video could be used effectively in your organisation, and how to upload and share your videos for maximum impact.
Bringing these additional skills into your organisation will greatly strengthen your ability to communicate with your audiences.
Videos are a great way to liven up your website and social media, or demonstrate your products or services. Now you can make video a regular part of your marketing mix, applying the knowledge you’ll gain from our workshop.
