Workshop Structure

SESSION ONE: Overview of brands and creators are using the platform and how they have become successful.
SESSION TWO: How do I come up with ideas that are going to do well? Traits of virality and standing out in the sea of content. Think smart.
SESSION THREE: How do I produce video for various platforms (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube)? Here we look at algorithms, consumption habits and building an ecosystem that's sustainable.
SESSION FOUR: Different levels of production, focussing on the strength of your content content and finding clever ways to use video cheaply.
Q & A: What are you hoping to gain from this session? What questions do you have following the content thus far?
SESSION FIVE: Practical creation! Simple editing, simple shoot, go out and make either a “montage” a “How to" video, an “Individual Channel Trailer” or a “Business  trailer”. This will challenge you to think before you shoot and to keep it simple and effective.
