Training

 Skills2Film provides training, solutions and answers to the frequent questions clients ask.

  • How do you script a film and keep it on brand?
  • How do you know what equip to buy or hire?
  • How do you use the camera to tell a story and engage the client and shareholder?
  • What checklists do you need before you start filming?
  • What if your CEO is no good in front of the camera?
  • How do you edit and distribute your film?
  • How will we find the time to do the filming and the day job?

From the start of your decision making process, Skills2Film trains you how to utilise video content specifically for your brand and company and we then train you how to script, film, produce and present your story. We use our own case studies from TV programmes – many of which you will have seen – to explain what works and what doesn’t.

Then we train you to harness these same skills.
