About the course

Video is everywhere these days. It is more engaging than text on a web page, it's more shareable, it creates stronger consumer attention and viewers are more likely to have a greater emotional connection with video content and therefore your organisation or brand.


Sites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are bursting with video and, statistics suggest more than 80 per cent of web traffic is now video related.


There’ll always be occasions when you’ll need the services of an expert production company, but for day-to-day video content, you’d be surprised by what you can achieve with just a smartphone.
