Video Training Courses

Shot Blast Media offers unique video training courses. The courses are run as a one day programme and are customised to your business requirements. We run the video training courses in small groups or on a one-to-one basis. Situated in our media studio and office environment, the course is crafted to take marketeers, sales teams and company communicators out of their every day and put them through a range of different practical filmmaking and video training exercises.

The course covers the head to toe of video production, specifically for social media. This is to help organisations get more from their own people and devices such as phones and tablets to create short and interesting pieces of ad hoc content for social media. From the planning stages, to the filming, to the editing and marketing of the social content you’ll be creating, we’ll be guiding you through the entire process.

Our course gives a fresh and unique approach to modern video training, a course that companies and businesses need as much as ever in a changing marketing landscape. The session is very interactive and includes a mix of facilitator led content, multiple practical activities, media tips and feedback sessions.

Video training is a course designed to help you hone your filmmaking skills in creating social media videos for your business. The course covers set-up, pre-production, production and then post-production. When you’re done you should be able to create your own short videos for posting on social media. All our video training is delivered on a one-to-one basis or in a small group of three from the same organisation.

Video has never been as important in digital marketing as it has been today. More and more businesses are using video to promote their brand, and whilst high end corporate video should be something to be left to a professional video production company, many companies would like to create snippets for social media. Quick, simple and easy to produce videos that will leave a lasting impact on your audience. Of course, to produce these videos you need the know-how to do so.

It’s important to have this training so you are prepared to produce the best video you possibly can. Whilst on paper, taking out your phone and filming yourself sounds easy enough, but in order to really grab your audience, you need to create something with more production value and detail.

You just need to bring your smartphone or tablet device you plan to create your videos with. The course is designed for you to work with no equipment other than a device and an app. We will of course provide recommendations should you wish to buy kit at a later stage but this course is about working well with the basics.

This course is for anyone who wants to create their own social media video content. This includes anyone in marketing, sales, comms and PR. If social media video production is something you seek to pursue, this course is for you. It’s for anyone you work with who handles or is part of your in house content creation.

The video training course will cover a lot of information and technical skills you’ll need to create your own social media video production content. The course will go over the three main parts of any filmmaking:

Pre-Production. This will cover all the work you need to do before shooting. This will include going over equipment and set-up, and also your scripting and storyboarding if you need it.

Production will cover everything you need to know in producing the film. How exactly you shoot, how you should go about composing your shot and the techniques needed in directing your focus.

Post-Production will go over the editing process. Looking at the best software and apps to use, and all the techniques to created a well edited video. It will also cover how to market your finished product the best.

What makes our course different?

Unlike most other video training courses, our course takes place in our on site studio. We believe taking participants out of their normal working environment is key to establishing a different atmosphere and creating a real media experience. All our training is delivered on a one-to-one basis or in small groups of up to 6 delegates. This is for practical reasons as well as to comply with Government social distancing guidelines. The small group size and individual training means candidates have more time for practical sessions with our video trainer, with less distractions from larger group sizes. Candidates will have a hands on experience, it’s important they feel up to date with current information but more importantly they can leave with practical skills on how to produce effective social media video content.

The course is also delivered by our video training expert David, who is currently working actively within the video and media industry. As a corporate video production company we work with a multitude of company directors, CEO’s, PR and comms teams and regularly spot the pitfalls that untrained staff fall into when trying to create their own content. We always suggest the key content stays professionally produced but short snippets for social media purposes, created in the right way can have a hugely positive impact on a company’s communications.
