Testimonials

“In my current role I felt that using video will further help provide a wide range of different training content and allow us to film scenarios and good practice methods”
Joe Lock, IT Training Enfield Council
“We wanted to organise some training in house for our teams around making videos…and to make short videos for You Tube and Social Media about our services such as how to pay your rent, how to reduce energy use around the home etc ”
Stephani Davis, Senior Housing Manager, Broadland Housing Association
“Cameron and Charlie came on-site and delivered 2-days of high quality training including a range of tips and tricks in both filming and editing, that immediately improved the content we were producing. The training was also suitable to allow us to pass on this knowledge to a number of people across the organisation, meaning the skillset of many more people than just those there on the day, have been raised”
Andrew Lawn, Digital Channels Specialist for The John Innes Centre and The Sainsbury Laboratory
“I completed the video training course last month with Eye Film. It was a fantastic course. I left the course with a professional video and I now feel comfortable continuing to make film and use the editing skills/tools required. It was run by a passionate and friendly team with many years of experience. I've left with ambitions to make more Film!”
Barry Allard, Social Entrepreneur

WHAT WE PROVIDE

 

We offer courses over one, two or more days, ranging from an introduction to filming to full film and editing packages. Our trainers are all industry professionals and members of our team, who understand filming trends and technology.

Because we can come to you and base the day around what you want to film, by the end of the training you will have produced a film you will want to use in the future.

We like to keep our training groups small (a maximum of three delegates to one member of staff) so that we can give everyone individual attention – particularly where we have people with varying degrees of experience. We can discuss your requirements with you and can even run one to one training at your business/organisation.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

 

  • Equipment – We advise on camera, sound & lighting equipment. We can do this in advance so you have the right equipment.
  • Planning – What sort of films do you want to make and how should you approach and plan these to make the most of your time and resources?
  • Filming – How to use (and get the best from) your camera for video and sound. How to film varied film sequences to create professional footage.
  • Interviews – How to set up, light and record sound for a professional interview. How to plan your questions and get the best from your interviewee.
  • Editing – From organising footage, cutting interviews, to sequencing, giving footage a cinematic look and adding captions, effects and a soundtrack.
  • Feedback and moving forward –  We’ll offer you feedback on your finished film and stay in contact via email or phone to offer advice on future films.
