This two week course led by Niamh MacAuley from Purple Dot Media focuses on training you to become a natural in front of the camera, and behind it! Creating engaging video content is what one of the outcomes of this course will be; we will also ensure you know when and where is the best time to post your content, what equipment or apps should you be using, and more. To ensure that you get the most from the training there will be a short homework which will be reviewed by Niamh and feedback provided.
