‘Your Phone as a Tool for Good’: Citizen Journalism with Rainbow Collective

Join us for this hands-on session of learning how to use your phone as a powerful tool for good with our friends at Rainbow Collective.

We’re back with another edition of our popular Citizen Journalism workshop! In this training, participants will be given a practical walkthrough of how to use a smartphone as a tool to make campaign films. We will talk through the camera settings you need, how to film interviews, what camera angles to choose and how to film cutaways.

We will introduce you to mobile phone editing software such as KineMaster (available on IOS and Android) and show participants how to import and put footage onto a timeline, how to do basic cuttings, how to add cutaway shots and then how to export.

 

You will also learn:

The breakdown of what makes a good campaign film

How to release a campaign film through social media with some simple do’s and dont’s.

Participants will also be given insight into what equipment to get on a budget for your mobile phone to create powerful and professional campaign films.

 

All skill levels welcome.
