How to make a watchable video
with Bob Maddams

Nowadays, you can shoot good quality video on a cheap camcorder, ipad or even a mobile phone, and there are lots of free editing software packages to download. So why are so many videos boring to watch, whether they’re birthday party videos, holiday videos or even business videos for websites or social media? It’s because you also need to know the basic principles of film grammar.

These are the “dos and don’ts” of how to make a video that looks like it was made by a TV professional. No technical expertise required, if you can stand still, point a camcorder or mobile phone and press record, then this session is for you because the film grammar “tricks of the trade” you’ll be shown will do the rest.
