The iPhone, and smartphones in general, can really produce great quality video. But if you have ever tried filming yourself you will know  there's one big problem - you can't be in front of the high quality rear camera presenting AND behind the camera getting the framing right and adjusting the manual controls at the same time. Many people solve this by using the front facing camera on their phones - but, unless you have an iPhone 7 or later, the quality of this camera is much less that the rear camera. In this lecture we show you how to overcome this problem and record at the highest quality.

Considering it's a visual medium, you might think it's odd that the sound is even more important than the picture. Your audience may tolerate poor video, but not poor sound, and they'll click away. Yet sound is the one element you can easily and cheaply improve. You do not have to rely on the internal microphone on your iPhone or smartphone, that will make your subject sound distant and unintelligible if more than a few feet away. We'll show you how in this video.

iPhone filmmaking or video production relies on light, shadow and color, but when you use these elements cleverly you can make plain backgrounds more interesting, thereby elevating your videos a couple of notches above the average. In this video, we'll show you visual effects created with everyday props that can easily be found around the home.

Editing your video is an important part in the video production process. It is an opportunity to add a little polish to your finished video. But is also a key element in making your story clear and easy to understand, as well as succinct. Your audience has many competing demands on his/her time, so you must keep the length of your video to a minimum. The ideal length is, no longer than it needs to be.

In this lecture we introduce you to three ways of editing your footage, each offering you greater sophistication in your editing.

  1. Top'n'Tailing your clip in Filmic Pro
  2. Basic editing of multiple clips, use of transitions, adding color 'Looks' and music
  3. Full editing in HitFilm Express. A free desktop video editing program for both Mac and Windows.
