As the UK's lead organisation for film and the moving image, The BFI have developed a specialist course designed to help marketers shoot high quality videos on smartphones.
In this practical two day course, we’ll teach you how to shoot and edit professional video using your smartphone or tablet.
Receiving verbal feedback from our expert film educator, you’ll learn how to improve your videos through creating visual storyboards, practicing different shot types and experimenting with basic editing techniques and effects.
In a mixture of group and individual activities, you’ll plan, shoot and edit your own ideas and work with footage and audio professionally captured by the BFI. By the end of the course, we’re hoping you walk away feeling more confident and equipped with tips and tricks to continue your filmmaking journey.
After the course, you may decide to explore creating your own smartphone content, and/or you may find your new knowledge helpful when commissioning external agencies.
Just a quick note - we recommend you use editing software Adobe Premiere Pro during the course, as this is what the demos will be focused on. If you are unable to arrange access via a license or free trial, don't worry, we'll include information on an alternative free programme Lightworks in the welcome letter.
This course is suitable for anyone who wants to gain a greater understanding of how and why video content is effective in a marketing context, and would like practical experience and guidance on starting to capture and edit their own footage. Perhaps you would like to hone your self-taught Adobe Premiere Pro skills.
The BFI also offer a short course Filmmaking Storytelling Fundamentals, designed for anyone looking to improve their understanding of filmmaking and storytelling for use as part of a broader marketing strategy
"Very friendly and useful, it gave me a better understanding of process and steps to creating great video. Yes I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to gain confidence in their filmmaking."
“Like so many crafts there are skills you can learn that will really impact your chances of success, and who better to give you these insights than the British Film Institute?”
"The aspects around framing a shot have been particularly helpful, i.e. where to position the subject and where the lighting needs to be. It was also really good to have expert supervision with Premiere Pro, because it has boosted my confidence and I have learnt some easier ways to do things."
"It's a great course. It was clear that we had support throughout from the tutor and he was very knowledgeable and understanding."
"I found all of it useful, but the section on day 1 where Sa-Ra discussed shots, angles, lighting etc. It was really great! I feel like I learned a lot in a short space of time and it exceeded my expectations."
