Smartphone Marketing: Learn to create video stories to promote your work.

  • VU at MetroWest 138 Nicholson Street Footscray, VIC, 3011 Australia (map)

Arts West and Cinespace Inc. present this short taster workshop for independent artists and small to medium arts organisations who want to use video as a tool for promoting or marketing their organisation, artworks or activities.

A smartphone story is a short film or promotional/marketing video made entirely on a mobile phone. It has a beginning, a middle, and an end. It can be made by one person, or by a team of people. A smartphone story can be made by anyone.

Audiences love to see stories set in places audiences haven't seen before, and that talk about new and different things.

Over three hours, you’ll cover

  • The benefits of shooting on a smartphone or device

  • The importance of story in promoting your organisation

  • Basic technical requirements, principles and processes for shooting and editing short videos, adding graphics and music and uploading to the web

  • A short practical shooting exercise with feedback

WHEN: 10am - 1pm, Thursday 1st August 2019.
WHERE: The Central Space, VU at MetroWest, 138 Nicholson St, Footscray.
COST: $20 Independent Artists / $50 Organisations / Free to Arts West members (with Members code)
