Create a YouTube Video with Just Your Phone and InShot
What you'll learn
- How to film and edit a video for vlogs and other uses from start to finish using only your smart phone and a video editing app called InShot.
- To complete this course you'll need a smart phone and the app InShot (free or paid).
Have you wanted to start a YouTube channel, but felt like you lacked the proper equipment? Want to try your hand at creating your own online courses, but don’t know how to edit it? I used to feel that way, but now there’s affordable technology that makes it possible. I create YouTube videos and online courses using only my phone and an app called InShot.
This course is perfect if you’re ready to create your YouTube channel, but aren’t sure how to go about it WITHOUT fancy equipment. The good news is, if you already have a smartphone with a decent camera, you’ve got the equipment you need.
For this course all you need is a smartphone and a version of InShot, plus a stylus pen and/or tripod/selfie stick (optional). I purchased InShot Pro, but there is also a free version. I highly recommend using some sort of tripod for filming, but it isn’t necessary. To film I use the video record feature on my Samsung Galaxy S10. I also use my Tribit bluetooth headphones for voice over recordings, but you can use the mic on your phone or any headphones that you have. The stylus pen doesn't need to be high quality, but I find it helps when making smaller adjustments to the video.
In this course you will learn how to film and edit a video for vlogs and other uses from start to finish.
We will cover:
Talking to the camera
Sectioning your video
Front camera vs. Back camera
How to trim and cut video
Audio and how to fade music
By the end of this course, not only will you have the skills to create a video using only your phone and Inshot, but you’ll have a video that’s ready to be shared with the world (or just your friends). I encourage you to share your works-in-progress or finished projects with the class community to receive feedback and support.

I'm Morgan, and I'm a storyteller and entrepreneur.
I create a variety of content including, fiction and non-fiction writing, digital copy for blogs and LinkedIn articles, YouTube videos, social media content, and more.
I have two sides:
A creative side which is passionate about art and performance. I'm a self-published author, I create immersive digital experiences online for social media, YouTube, and Patreon, and have directed/performed in film and on stage. I've been a writer and performer for over 25 years.
My other side loves business and entrepreneurship. I've started several businesses over the years including Denver Theatre Collective and my own brand, Morgan Schreiber. In early 2020, I started my YouTube channel and began creating online courses to share my knowledge with other self starters with the goal of creating authentic and easy to understand classes.
I'm excited to share my knowledge with you and I hope you're ready to learn!
