What participants say

“An informative and practical training course to help you create impactful videos instantly on your mobile phone! Veronica was a supportive and encouraging mentor with a strong emphasis on community driven messages, she was insightful and helpful at all times.”

“I had never even tried videomaking until the training. I was taught what type of videos are most likely to make an impact and was practically shown how to create them. After I created and published videos about my projects, people from across the city got in touch to ask how we could work together as they have seen the amazing things we are doing. It feels like I am having new conversations every day with potential collaborators as a result.”

“I went into the sessions open minded and came back enlightened. Veronica was very patient and helpful. She kept pushing for excellence and I would happily work with her on future projects. As of result of the training sessions I am now creating more videos for my community projects with the new skills I have learnt.”

“An effective mixture of information and practical activities. Really great doing it in a small group.”

“The workshop was totally focused on the third sector and relevant to the work we do, with so many good suggestions, Veronica did not talk in jargon and was so approachable. I came away feeling that the time spent was so worthwhile.”
