Video Tuition Workshops in Cambridge

                                                   Workshop in action

Video is increasingly essential for any business as part of their overall marketing strategy. Yet many SMEs don’t have the budget to hire a professional. However, all is not lost. You can shoot your own videos using your mobile phone, iPad or compact camera. We run regular video tuition workshops to show you how.  Once you have learnt this skill, you will be able to make your own videos as and when you need them, for no cost (apart from your time!)

This is the perfect workshop for you, if you want to produce regular and instant content for your website and/or social media channels and learn a new skill for your business (and for life).

We run 1-day (10.00-4.00) film tuition workshops for between
3 and 9 people. These workshops help you master the use of your camera, you learn how to downloading and save film clips to your computer, understand about composition and lighting and gain nfidence in front of and behind your camera.

You will also be given advice on how to write a script and present this to camera. At least half of the day is spent filming!  We guarantee you will have plenty of laughs, enabling you to relax and be smiley. Working in small friendly groups, you’ll get lots of encouragement and support to deliver your message to camera.  Please note the Film Tuition workshop does not include editing tuition.

Film Tuition Workshops are run four times a year at The Holiday Inn, Impington, Cambridge. Please email for dates. The cost of the workshop is £145 per person and includes a mini tripod with mobile phone clip and refreshments. Light lunches are available to purchase at the hotel on the day or you can bring a packed lunch.

Here’s some feedback to share from previous workshops
Today has been: Inspiring. Useful. Brilliant. Fun. Just right. Not long enough!

The very best bit was: Plenty of time to practise talking to my camera. Sorting my script. Filming outside. Learning how to use my camera. Realising how easy it was. Being able to learn from each other. Seeing the end result. Giving me the confidence to film myself. Really fun and so useful. Setting the scene. Plenty of time for retakes.

Things I really liked about the workshop: Friendly, casual and informal. No pressure. Audrie’s expertise, enthusiasm and encouragement. Not being made to feel incompetent. Easy to understand and no jargon. Great advice. Notes as reminders. Audrie’s style is so calm and relaxed. Great content. Working in small groups to help each other.

Today has given me: Motivatation. Ideas. Confidence. Lots of ways to improve.


and some testimonials

Jo Clayton of JoJo Cocoa “Being in possession of a tripod and a smart phone I thought I would learn how to use them properly. I attended a workshop run by BMVideomedia and had the loveliest day in the company of other business women, just talking to camera basically. I had written up a script and sort of followed it, but I soon realised that I was better off ad-libbing. Audrie taught me to think about the way the background looks, where the sun is, or if indoors, where the light is best, all of this sounds really obvious, but I have made videos before and not even had the camera the right way round! Having my videos on YouTube means I reach a far wider audience. More people knowing about chocolate, well that’s only got to be a good thing right?”

Peter King, Chairman, Eltisley History Society
“Audrie’s training has been inspirational – encouraging and supportive.  The confidence we gained has encouraged us to plan more projects for the coming year, based upon what we have learned.” 

Graham Spinks, MultiMedia Design Studio
“Audrie helped us create a promotional video for the Training Tracker User Group day. She was very comfortable working with a group of senior professionals and has the knack of putting everybody at their ease, ensuring that they appear at their very best.”
