    “There are some training courses you go to because you have to, and some you go to because you want to. The smartphone filmmaking training with Mile 91 was definitely the latter….”  

    With millions of films uploaded to the internet everyday, there has never been a better time to use the technology at your fingertips to capture images and films for your organisation. But it can be daunting knowing quite where to start.

    Let us help.

    We teach you some basic rules of filming from your own smartphone, skills that you then put in to action by making your own film. We teach you how to edit your footage and provide you with expert feedback.  We give you advice on what makes a good interview and how to get the best from the interviewee. By the end of one day you will have a film to take away with you.

    “There are some training courses you go to because you have to, and some you go to because you want to. The smartphone training with Mile 91 was definitely the latter. The team had a fantastic course with Mile 91 learning the fundamental skills to make professional films using their phones. We were all thoroughly impressed with the level of detail the course covered and how confident we all felt to make great films at the end. We’ve already put into practice the skills we learnt and have produced some brilliant films which have boosted the profile of the charity and our AV catalogue. Thank you Mile 91!”
