Mobile Content Creation

Become a content creator with your mobile device

Communication between a business or organisation and its clientele is increasingly taking place online and on social media. This course will get you on track to create content efficiently and with confidence.

You’ll gain skills in videography, sound recording and editing on the mobile platform and first-hand experience in conceptualising and executing a short video piece. The emphasis is on understanding how to deliver a highly polished product complete with music, graphics, titles and logos – all created on your iPhone, Android or iPad.

The course is delivered either online over five weeks, with weekly live Zoom sessions in the evening, or as a one-day workshop at AFTRS during business hours. Both courses have a maximum of 12 participants.
