Course overview

This free 6-week course is designed to give you the knowledge and tools to start creating great video content for social media channels like Instagram, TikTok, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and Twitter. It is ideal for those who need to understand the fundamentals of video for social media. It will equip you with the foundations for planning, filming, and editing videos on your smartphone.

Video is an integral part of any social media strategy. For many creatives, it is the best-performing form of content, but traditionally video is expensive and time-consuming to create. However, technological improvements in smartphones mean this high entry barrier is gone. The advances in tech and apps, alongside the changing way people consume video, mean that video production has become essential in the world of social media.

What you will learn

  • Creative aspects of videography (DOF, framing, composition, exposure)
  • Technical aspects related to social media videography (equipment options for social media etc.)
  • Social media requirements

Number of days per week

  • 1 Evening per week - Sighthill - Tuesdays 6-7:30 pm

Entry requirements

  • No formal entry requirements, but an interest in video and social media is important
