An Introduction to Filmmaking Learn how to create YouTube video content for your business, Nov

5th September 2013

This workshop will equip you with the basic knowledge and skills needed to plan, shoot/film, edit, export and upload an online video.

It includes how to use a video camera and how to select the appropriate camera for the job, the fundamentals of audio, composition of effective shots, shooting an interview and editing the footage to formulate the desired outcome whether that is a corporate message, internal communications or a funny story. We will look at the impact social media, viral video and faster broadband speeds has had, and is having within our business landscape. If you have an i-device i.e. iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch please bring it with you to this event. Location: North Church Business Centre, 84 Queen Street, Sheffield, S1 2DW   Don't know if the workshop is for you? Here are a couple of testimonials       -It's been great partnering with Jay and oXyFire to deliver the film-making workshops for Creative Edge Sheffield. Jay's approach to working is flexible, responsive and delivers results. During the workshops he maintained motivation with the participants and taught them the skills to plan, shoot, edit and produce their own short films. This lead to the production of a high quality short documentary on the story of Creative Edge by first-time film-makers. Jay and the oXyFire team are always professional and I'm looking forward to working with them again in the future. Vicky Ward, Director at Stories from the Street Ltd. Video Presenter Course: An interactive and engaging course which was literally the best days training I have ever attended. The knowledge and expertise of Jay and Becky were second to none, and I learned invaluable lessons which I will use in all future video productions. As a regular presenter (training) it is easy to think that you know everything there is to know about delivery, but it was a big surprise to learn quite how different it is when in front of a camera! I thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed delivery style and would recommend this course to anyone thinking of producing their own in house videos as a form of pre-work to the video production course. 10/10 Rebecca Winn, Training Officer, Irwin Mitchell Video Production Course: Whilst it is easy to think that you know quite a bit about filming with the likes of smart phones giving us this technology everyday; it's actually quite astounding what you actually need to take into consideration when doing a video production. The course was engaging and well placed to suit the needs of the group, with plenty of practical application (and a bit of gentle competition!) the group moved forward with confidence very quickly. Oxyfire are clearly experts in their field and this shone through in the training they provided, giving us the confidence and skills to begin creating our own in house videos. Excellent 5*  Rebecca Winn, Training Officer, Irwin Mitchell
