No filming or editing experience? No problem. For this interactive session, attendees will be given creative exercises to learn how to make exciting and engaging videos right from their smartphone.

Companies used to create multimillion dollar campaigns for TV, but today's content creators have dozens of platforms and seconds to work with. On the Internet, DIY-quality can often mean higher engagement. Platforms like Instagram Stories are making it easy to create on the spot. In this workshop, participants will learn best practices for making videos that people want to watch, through a hands-on creative exercise on mobile devices.
