Fun with Video: LearnWP’s first video with smartphone workshop

Last week we hosted our first workshop “Learn to shoot and add video content to your website.” Cindy Burgess of Pro Video Content gave us many fabulous tips to shoot more professional video using  your smartphone or tablet.

Here are a couple of great tips we learned:

  • Always shoot video holding your smartphone horizontally. Learn more about this video tip on Pro Video Content’s blog.
  • Look for movement without moving your camera – this differentiates your video from a “still camera” shot.

Here’s a short video we created during the workshop

We shot this video with an iPhone 4s, edited on the phone and uploaded it to YouTube. Once in YouTube, we added some music and an annotation at the end – with a link. You can do this too! Just take our workshop.
