More than a third of all online activity is spent watching video, opening up a range of opportunities for small charities and community organisations to engage with their current and potential supporters and beneficiaries.

Luckily, telling the story of your work has been made simpler with an ever-expanding range of apps to help you shoot your video and share it with the world.

You don't have to produce a feature-length film to demonstrate the impact your work makes. In fact, short, authentic stories have extraordinary power to inspire and motivate action. Short videos are also suited to busy lives and watching content on the move.

In this introductory course from Superhighways you’ll learn how to craft tiny, digestible videos using popular free and low cost mobile apps.

You’ll also come away with ideas for collecting and editing user-generated content.

Is this training for me?

This course is suitable for anyone with intermediate computer and internet skills that is responsible for communicating a charitable cause's impact to funders, supporters and beneficiaries.


By the end of the course you’ll be able to:

  • Recognise what makes a good story
  • Choose applications for your film making and useful accessories
  • Use basic storyboarding techniques
  • Practice app-based film-making
  • Start planning your own tiny film

You’ll also come away with ideas for sharing and editing user-generated content. 

As this course is completely hands on, giving you time to put into practice what you have learned at each stage, we have built in a working lunch. Please bring something to eat, and we will provide tea and coffee!
