What other people are saying about the Workshop.

I ​signed up for the Travelvids workshop on impulse and attended without really knowing what to expect.
It was one of those experiences that completely under-promises and over-delivers. I was particularly impressed at how tight you kept the presentation, rarely wandering off the thread and always on point. Everything you covered was useful and relevant. The use of videos to illustrate each step was genius and helped to drive each point home. I left feeling that I had learned a lot of really useful skills that I could use immediately.

​The energy from the TravelVids guys is enough to enthuse anyone to grab the opportunity to start shooting your first video clips.
Surely an opportunity you don't want to miss-out.

​This course is AWESOME. If you're looking for a content-rich video making course suitable for someone with zero experience - look no further. Honestly, this course is a masterclass in clear, concise, and engaging teaching. So well done! Thank you for this perfect introduction to making travel videos.


​Thank you for making content that is easy to understand, entertaining, and very helpful. I look forward to using everything I learned.

​I did the Travelvids Video intro course and really enjoyed the experience.
Not having an iPhone worried me a bit and being of an older generation also concerned me but the two presenters did not presume any prior knowledge so started from scratch and gave us some really great tips - how to set up shot lists, how to shoot to limit editing and some good "go-to" sites to assist with editing and music.
I can highly recommend this course for a great intro to creating fun and informative travel videos with your phone.
