What do I need to have with me to participate in the course?

We recommend that you do not invest in any new equipment prior to attending the course as we cover equipment during the training and we make recommendations based on your specific requirements.

The cameras on most smartphones are perfectly fine for shooting video.  However, to achieve the best functionality from the editing software it is best that your phone is not more than 5 years old.  iPhones need to have iOS 12.4 or later. If you are not sure how to check this out feel free to get in touch prior to booking and we can have a look for you.

We provide notes but it is always a good idea to have pen and paper handy to take your own notes.

Participants complete two video assignments while on the course and the skills acquired can be applied to a broad range of situations to allow businesses engage more effectively with their customers online.
