Event description


Lights, Smart Phones, Action!

Hi everyone, Tony here and thanks for your interest in the Smart Phone Video Workshop.

Join us and learn How to Create engaging video content on your smart phone.

Cisco* predicts that 82% of all internet traffic by 2022, will be video. We're seeing more TV Ads, Corporate Videos and Feature Films being shot on smart phones. Last Monday morning, the first 3 posts on my LinkedIn feed were all smart phone videos.

User-generated video on social media is growing rapidly and being able to create your own, is an important personal and professional digital media skill to have.

We'll show you how.

Now Showing...

In the workshop, we'll cover all of the essentials to help get you started and give you a solid foundation in smart phone video production.

By the end of the workshop, our aim is to empower you with the essential skills required to produce your own effective and engaging smart phone video content.

Our day together will be filled with hands-on learning, demonstrations and practical exercises. Highly interactive, expert training led by myself and mobile video master trainer, Caroline Scott from the UK. I'm very excited that Caroline is able to join us.

Discovery Channels

Here's what we'll cover;

  • Essential Equipment - explain smart phone features and video set-up (iPhone and Android), recommend which microphones to use and the importance of professional sound, show you tripod 'rig' options and how to use a stabilising gimbal, portable lighting, lenses and various other accessories.

  • Filmmaking 101 - framing composition, capturing b-roll overlay, plus editing essentials checklist. Making sure you have the shots, to construct the video story.

  • Storytelling techniques to enhance mobile video content creation.

  • Which Apps to use - the best Apps to film, edit, post-produce and publish smart phone video content. Plus, an introduction on how to use them.

  • Social media technical requirements for smart phone video.

  • Plus, we welcome your input to match your specific needs and requirements.

Cast & Crew - Your Trainers

Caroline Scott - I'm thrilled that Caroline can join us from the UK for the workshop.

She teaches news organisations and businesses how to harness the power of that TV studio in your pocket.

Tony Johnston - Journalist and Emmy-award winning video producer with 33 years of broadcast media and communications experience. Swiss-based, I create video content for international companies. This course was developed in response to a rapidly growing need from client's to learn how to make their own smart phone videos.

I am here to support you. Please feel welcome to call me or email any further questions or specific requirements prior to the event;

*Corporate workshops and individual coaching available across Switzerland. Smart phone video production and editing also available. Don't hesitate to get in-touch to discuss your needs.

Setting the Scene

The workshop is in English. No prior smart phone video experience required.

I recommend using your existing phone and completing the workshop first, before upgrading or purchasing any additional equipment. The great thing is that you can produce usable mobile video on the phone that you currently have. The key, is knowing how to use it.

We will advise if any any Apps need to be pre-loaded before the event. Please bring any selfie-sticks, tripods or other smart phone accessories you may have. By way of inspiration, the event photo above shows the 'rig' I'm currently using to create corporate smart phone video content.

The workshop will be limited to 16 people. There is strong interest and if the Saturday workshop fills-up, we have an option for a second workshop on Sunday 22 September on-demand. Future workshops are planned for Zurich.


Morning tea will be provided. Please bring lunch and any other refreshments you require. The venue is conveniently situated opposite the Lausanne train station, with a variety of cafes and restaurants close-by.

The End.

Thanks for your interest in the Smart Phone Video Workshop. I sincerely hope to see you there and help get you started, on your path to smart phone video success.
