#EssentialSector mobile video training

Some of the best video content is taken using the simplest equipment. Anyone can learn to use their mobile phone to tell the story of their organisation and to show its impact.

On this page you'll find a recording of a webinar on how to make videos using your mobile phone, led by professional film makers, Media Co-op. They were joined by Dates-n-Mates and Helensburgh Community Hub, who produced their own films for the #EssentialSector campaign and SCVO colleagues.

You can also access a number of resources to support your learning. These valuable resources are all produced and kindly provided by media co-op.
