Smartphone filming skills 

From filming fear to confidence on camera – turn your small business into a social media success with smartphone filming skills.

Many of us are put off the idea of video production by an expectation of costs. Little do we realise that we already have a professional video camera right there in our pockets. One we’re familiar with, is always on us, and is capable of filming high definition footage.

But to get the most out of this small, agile and creative piece of equipment, we need to know how to use it. Because once you combine your understanding of your audience and social platforms, together with the ability to make captivating and engaging videos, then the social media world is at your fingertips – literally! And you can start to sell your business through social media using the power of video.

“I needed to upskill quickly for an upcoming video project and I got in touch with Helen for some help. I’m so glad I did as Helen taught me an incredible amount in our first zoom call from planning the video shoot, thinking about the storytelling, the technical set up, equipment I needed and editing. She went above and beyond in every way and was a pleasure to work with too. I’m so grateful, thank you Helen.”


Online Workshop

Helen regularly runs online Smartphone Skills Workshops in conjunction with local networking groups including Business Women in. Over the course of 2 hours these workshops give small businesses all the tips and tricks they need to elevate their social media through video.

Hyde Media originally formed as a media production company with just an iPhone, a tripod and a microphone. We combined this inexpensive kit with Helen’s experience and knowledge of working as a BBC camera operator, together with her formal training in journalism, and this successful combination helped her to understand how to tell the story of a business with just a smartphone. Even to this day, we often film with our iPhones, continuing to invest in equipment which can turn them into professional, broadcast-quality video cameras.
