The training was great!   This was incredibly helpful for me because I was able to visualize more of the video in detail.  It’s so important to know how and why a structure of a film works (even if its 15 seconds). This breaks down all the steps to make a video more effective to the viewer.

WHAT YOU'LL LEARN

You don't need to learn ALL of filmmaking to make video for social media.

You just need to learn enough.

I've broken down the process and identified just the areas you need to learn - creating mini roadmaps.  With these roadmaps, you'll find making video fun and easy.

The Typical Film Process:

The best made films focus on all of these elements.  Each one, having a myriad of potential problems to avoid in planning or resolve during and after the shoot.

Yes, this can be overwhelming for one person.  But, there is a better way...

The Bite Sized approach...

My method for creating social media films drastically shortens this list.  Not only is the list of what you have to learn and do shortened, I also provide tools to help you through the planning process and roadmaps for designing your content.

"Little videos are little invitations to learn more."

BITE SIZED MODULES

Here is what you'll learn when you join this course.  The idea is to get you EXACTLY what you need in order to create compelling story-based social media films.

I want you to be able to create content you love, that represents your brand and gives your audience education or inspiration that they'll appreciate.  I provide you STEP-BY-STEP PROCESS on how to plan, shoot and edit your videos in a way that is both fun and easy.

Module 1: PROCESS

  • Identify your audience
  • Choose your tone
  • Develop your concept board
  • Create your shot list

Module 2:  ROADMAPS

  • How To
  • Product Demo
  • Event Recap

  • Using your phone to film
  • Simple editing software
  • Ins and outs of using music

Module 4:  ARTISTRY

  • Using existing light
  • Styling your shot
  • Directing talent

With this process, you'll be able to produce professional looking videos in less time than you thought possible.

WHAT YOU'LL GAIN FROM THESE MODULES

  • Module 1: PROCESS

    The foundation of creating successful video is a story and a plan.  Planning helps you avoid  problems before they happen.  And a story keeps your audience engaged.  You’ll learn a repeatable process designed specifically for micro films that takes many of the decisions off the table so you can focus on the fun part.

  • Module 2: ROADMAPS

    If you get stuck on what to create and what to share, I’ve identified and broken down four proven story structures that work on Instagram.

    You CAN create a story in 15 seconds.  And we’re going to cover four structures.

  • Module 3: TOOLS

    If you’re like me, you need technology but don’t want to think about it too much.  I’ve identified the best tools I can find for your phone.  No need to learn complicated editing software.  If you know professional software already, I share some of my workarounds for getting more out of less.  You’ll learn how filming and editing can be easy and fun.

  • Module 4: ARTISTRY

    To help you help your brand shine, I’m including basic lessons on lighting, staging and the importance of variety  In each area, I focus on using what you have in your environment already, rather than requiring that you go out and purchase equipment.  I encourage you to get creative.

YOU'LL ALSO RECEIVE...

  • WORKSHEETS - Created to help you with planning, shooting and editing
  • CHECK LISTS - Technical and artistic reminders, so you don't have to go back and re-watch the video
  • FACEBOOK GROUP - I'll be creating a new FB group so you can brainstorm with your peers
  • WEEKLY LIVE WEBINAR - Where I will be there to answer your questions
  • BITE SIZED FILM FEST - At the end of our training we'll get together online to share our work

BONUS MODULE:  SHARE

To complete your bite sized video making process, you need to share.

I look at sharing as a mini-launch.  It is no longer okay to just post and hope people watch your video.  You need to entice them with your title, with your Instagram mini-blog, with your thumbnail photo, with your sharing plan, and by planning your videos as a strategy.

  • Putting your Video on Instagram
  • Mini Hashtag Strategy
  • Instagram Mini-blog Strategy
  • Using Your Video on Facebook
