Smartphone, iPad, and Tablet MovieMaking Made Easy--Postponed

Wednesday, January 8, 2014 - 1:00pm to 4:00pm
Event Description: 

Join the video revolution. You can use your smartphone, iPad, or  tablet to create every kind of movie. We’re, talking blogs, travelogues, thrillers, family documentaries, instructional programs, music videos, commercials, and more.

You don’t need to be a film school graduate. All it takes is your mobile device, a few low-cost apps, a tripod, a bit of imagination….plus a few easy-to-master techniques.

How to make videos your friends will want to see twice! That’s where we enter the picture. In three entertaining, engaging hours, the iPhone Video Guru will teach you the basics Smartphone moviemaking.

You will learn:

  • how to shoot powerful images
  • how to record professional quality sound
  • professional lighting techniques using available light
  • practice three simple editing techniques that will elevate the quality of your video
  • how to upload your videos to YouTube and Facebook.


Mastering new technology can be scary, but not in Smartphone Made Easy. We will guide you step-by-step, give you fun practices, hold your hand (if necessary), answer every question, and make sure you have success.

We guarantee it! If you don’t feel that the workshop is fun and useful, you get your money back…and you get to keep the amazingly useful guide.

THE DATE: January 8, 2015  - 1PM to 4PM
