A Star Media – How to make a ‘Vodcast’ training session

At A Star Media we love making films, sharing films and watching films. As an award winning film production company we know what makes a good film, and we know what trouble a bad film can cause for your image.

Vodcasts are ‘Video On Demand’ Casts, basically web based films that users can watch at their leisure. Vodcasts are a great way to regularly communicate with your target market, and can be created quickly and easily to create recurring content, just like a blog.

When producing a Vodcast sometimes it’s best to call in the experts, but if you regularly want to create film content to promote your business, improve the optimisation of your website and share information with existing and potential customers, sometimes it could be good to do it yourself.

Making your own basic video can be easy!

Creating simple and effective films is easy, but it’s also really easy to get it wrong. Like anything to do with your business you want to get the quality right, it’s got to do your brand a favour and not be a little marketing experiment that’s kept out of sight.

Over the last few years we’ve developed some simple tricks to make any film better, and the best thing is we’re going to share them with you!

Our Vodcast training sessions will teach you the basics in how to create a great online video. We’ll show you basic camera techniques and how to set up your very own YouTube channel and we’ll introduce YouTube’s free tools to keep track of how successful your videos are.

Training will be given over a morning session, with breakfast provided along with the opportunity to network with fellow delegates.

Places are limited and are charged at £25 per person plus VAT.

Our next session will be held on Friday 7th October at Forever Green in Mansfield. Contact us to book your place.

Film is here for the users!

Sometimes even simple things can seem complicated to a novice, remember your first driving lesson or learning how to ride a bike?

A clear explanation can often turn something difficult into something easy, but giving a clear explanation over the web can sometimes be hard.

To help their users understand their service A Star Media was recently asked to produce a film for new auction site www.bidgrid.co.uk explaining how to use the site, and not to blow our own trumpet too much, but it’s pretty awesome!

We also helped the site developers get their film on Facebook and YouTube and since its launch the film has received over 700 views!

What’s the moral of the story? Film is the best way to show users how your stuff works, simple!
