Frequently Asked Questions

How are the videography courses run?

We come to your workplace for a full-day videography workshop. The video course is split half & half with filming and editing. In the morning we look at your equipment, learn camera skills and discuss your video strategy before we run a practice filming session. In the afternoon we edit together your footage using Adobe Premiere Pro or Filmora. 

Do I need prior experience?

Our videography courses are entirely personalised to you. Whether you’re a complete beginner or have already started filming and editing, you’ll be guided through a step-by-step process suitable to your skill level. You don't need to worry if you haven't used a camera or edited before.

What else is included in your video making course?

 

We cover a lot of content on the day and want to ensure you're set-up to continue your video making journey. You'll be provided with access to our YouTube video editing tutorial with the exact workflow that we teach you in Adobe Premiere Pro or Filmora. You'll also be provided with a personalised cheatsheet document that includes everything that we covered in the video workshop and includes hand-picked tutorials to take your videos to the next level.

Can I use my own equipment?

Yes, you can bring your own smartphone or camera and we will teach you how to use it. We'll ask you to provide a complete list of your camera gear when booking your video course.

What if I don't have equipment?

If you don't currently own any equipment, no problem! We'll provide our own equipment for you to use on the day. This will help you decide what to purchase in the future. If you wish to invest in equipment before the workshop then get in touch for some recommendations. A tripod and microphone are two essential pieces of equipment to start with.

How do I book? 

 

Our video workshops are run on a bookings basis. Simply book online to reserve a date of your choice. We'll ask you to provide some examples of the types of videos you'd like to create. The more context you provide the better we can personalise the day to you!

What requirements do I need at our workplace?

At your workplace we require a meeting room with a screen and HDMI connection to share our laptop. We'll also need WiFi and a suitable area to break off and practice filming interviews and b-roll footage.

How does the practice video work?

For the practice video we ask you to provide an idea for a short and simple video that is relevant to your team. We usually practice filming an interview and capturing 'b-roll' footage to supplement the interview.

What else do I require for the video workshop?

For the video editing we will learn on Adobe Premiere Pro or Filmora. You can download the 7-day free Premiere Pro trial prior to the workshop. Please check Adobe's recommended system requirements to ensure your laptop is suitable for editing. For filming you can either bring your smartphone or any camera that you already own. For larger groups it's best that everyone has their own device to capture footage.

What is the maximum group size?

8 people – this ensures all participants are getting the maximum value from our workshops. Please get in touch to discuss larger groups.

Do I need my own footage?

In the full-day videography course we will capture your own footage in the practice filming session. For the 1-1 video editing class (3 hrs) you can either bring your own footage or we'll use some stock footage provided by Adobe.

How do I pay?

Upon confirming a date you'll receive an invoice for payment 7 days after the workshop. You can pay online here.
