Smartphone Filmmaking

  • Our smartphone filmmaking course takes you through the basics of sound, visuals and editing. By the end of the day you'll have produced your first short film.

With millions of films uploaded to the internet every day, 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.

Mile 91 has run over 25 smartphone filmmaking training courses for a variety of organisations over the last few years including British Red Cross, Oak Foundation, Dogs for Good, and Centrepoint. Each and every client has found the techniques and skills they have learnt invaluable.

We teach you the basic rules of filming on 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.

We take you step-by-step through the process and you will receive a digital copy of our handbook to take home, which is loaded with information, hints and top tips. You also receive a remote follow up mentoring session.

Other charities who have participated in our training include Action for Children, Blue Cross, ChildHope, CW+, Marie Curie, Nesta, The Orchid Project, Prisoners’ Education Trust, Refugee Action, Royal Marsden Hospital, Teenage Cancer Trust, Shelter, Women for Women International and World Animal Protection.
