About This Class


Today's smartphones are capable of shooting video of excellent quality. But we see a lot of videos that are - to put it charitably - not of excellent quality. This course shows you how to use your smartphone to create videos you'll be proud of.

What You'll Need

A video capable smartphone of any kind and a desire to create great videos with it.  That's it - no other prerequisites.


Video editing is a huge and complex subject, worthy of several courses itself. Nonetheless, your videos will be much better when you can do rudimentary editing.

The free Adobe Premiere Clip lets you edit right on your phone and share your results on social media. So rather than tackling editing in this course, I've included links below to good descriptions from others on how to use Adobe Clip.

You can download this app for free from the store

How to Edit Video on Your Phone by Joe Heslop is a good introduction.

Review and Tutorial of Adobe Premiere Clip by Bearded Bristol is a very detailed description and demo.
