The video above was all filmed & edited on a smartphone.

We all have the technology in our pockets to create powerful video content using our smartphones.

We all consume video content and this trend is set to continue. However, every time we think video, we think high cost for little output. However, as this workshop will demonstrate, this isn’t the case at all.

Throughout 2018, the Wales Blog Network will be championing video and working closer together than ever before with the Welsh vlogging community. So, we are pleased to share this upcoming video/editing workshop that we know you’ll enjoy.

This workshop will help you to stop taking shaky smartphone video, and give you the ability to create high quality video that you can actually use in a semi-professional environment.

So, whether you’re looking to create your own YouTube channel, or to start using video for your organisation’s website or social media channels, this workshop will give you the skills that you need to do just that.
