Edit it yourself: A practical guide to video editing

In this 60-minute webinar, Dean Shaw, Tech Champion for Content Creation, will present how to use free editing tools to edit your videos. Dean will show you the whole editing journey; starting with transferring the footage from your phone to the editing tool, and ending with the creation of the final video, ready to be posted on social media. 

You will learn: 

  • How to import video footage from your phone to the editing tool. 
  • How to use the editor’s timeline to cut, adjust and grade the video footage. 
  • How to add closed captions to make your video accessible. 
  • How to improve the quality of the audio in your video. 

You can book your place via Eventbrite.
