What’s it all about?
This is an inspiring and fun class to bring your story to life using your smartphone! You will learn simple filmmaking techniques – enough to make your own film with your smartphone, or tablet computer.
You can record new visuals, or make a video clip using your existing photos and videos already in your phone. We’ll learn how to shoot and edit creatively.
