This session is sponsored by Mobile Bootcamp: Shoot, Edit and Publish Video on the Fly

Join experienced trainers in this highly interactive workshop which will teach you how to produce video news packages using only your iPhone. You'll learn basic techniques on how to collect quality sound bites, how to compose interviews, how to shoot compelling B-roll, and how to shoot a selfie stand-up. You will also learn how to edit those assets using the free app listed below into a short news package that you can quickly share with the world — and beat the journos using bigger rigs. Please bring a charged iPhone and earbuds.

If you have a tripod of any kind and mount adapter for your iPhone, bring that, too. Ditto if you have a MiFi or other mobile WiFi device, since a tech-heavy convention of digital journalists means sometimes spotty hotel coverage. Please note this session is limited to 80 participants on a first-come, first-served basis. This workshop is limited to iOS devices only.

PLEASE NOTE: Participants should download this free app before the workshop: Videolicious by The Talk Market, Inc.
