You're ready to make your own video content for your business, but you're worried about it looking amateur.

Or you've just missed another brilliant video opportunity, because you didn't have time to hire a videographer.

Video for your job is no longer optional. It's critical.

I'm here to help you to just get on with it.

In this course, you’ll learn the basics of making simple professional-looking social video for thought-leadership, demos, tutorials, interviews and everything in between.

I'll teach you camera skills and composition techniques using your smartphone. After that, you'll be all set to move on to DSLR or a prosumer camera.

Your video content will look more professional - immediately.

I'll also guide you through the crucial content piece.

How do you tell good stories with video?

How do you make the kind of episodic content that builds an audience who want to come back for more?

You won't just learn how to get great results with the camera in your pocket, you'll also get to grips with the principles of structured storytelling for video.

Each module is specially designed for total beginners, and gives you need-to-know information without the overwhelm, so you will want to get started straight away.

The course comprises video lessons, transcripts and downloadable workbooks, with practical exercises throughout. You will also get a 1:1 live mentoring session with Niamh. A digital badge is awarded on completion.

My name's Niamh, and I have a vision.

I want to help you to make great social video for your business - with no prior experience, and without expensive equipment.
Because I believe that everyone can tell their own video stories, using easy tools and professional techniques.

That's what I do at Go Motion Academy - I help people to film and edit quality video with confidence.

Go Motion Academy is like film school for business. We provide high-end training in business video to non-video people, and we offer that training in a professional, results-driven environment.

As a highly-experienced television producer director, formerly with the national broadcaster of Ireland, RTÉ and leading Irish newspaper, The Irish Times, I apply the standards of broadcast to production for broadband.

As a BBC-qualified trainer, I have been training people in video production for many years, building and honing my tried and tested courses in Camera & Editing Skills.

I have a deep understanding of the needs of businesses as they engage with video in order to successfully meet challenging commercial targets, while maintaining brand messaging and integrity.
