I am so happy I took the Social Media Video Course! I’m now armed with the ability to not only create content for my current job role, but it enables me to help my clients to do the same.

Before today I had never even edited a video – and now I’m actually excited about it and have already filmed and edited some content I’m actually happy with!



If I were to rate the online Zoom class, it would be 10/10!

Stephen was incredible, engaging with us and the technology we were using, he didn’t make any of us feel we were inadequate and most importantly lots of fun was had! Overall, the day was so enjoyable and I learnt so much.


Newcastle University

The virtual classroom setting, teacher, content and tasks were all excellent and I have come away with the confidence to include video within our content plan as soon as we are able to. We learnt how to apply different shooting techniques, including interviewing contributors and using timelapse and slow-motion footage to create striking videos.


Port of Milford Haven

I’d definitely recommend the course to other marketers, communicators and business people who want to have an impact, but don’t have the resources to use external providers.

The editing was swift and easy on our mobiles.

Thank you!
