While the way we work has evolved, video remains as relevant as ever. Being able to create short videos on your own will allow you the freedom and power to say what you want, when you want, using the medium that people prefer. Advanced smartphones make creating videos mobile and easy. But how do you ensure your videos stand out for their quality and content?

BBC-trained videographer Rob Glass will show you how to embrace the power of storytelling and produce excellent videos simply and efficiently with your smartphone.
