THIS SESSION WILL BE DELIVERED IN ENGLISH ONLINE. Welsh documents are available upon request.

This four-part YouTube workshop is the first in our ‘Getting Started’ series, aimed at providing useful advice and support to potential and existing business owners.

From an introduction to the video-sharing website, to editing, importing and uploading – the sessions will leave you feeling equipped and confident to start ‘YouTubing’ for business.

Filmmaker and storyteller, Gwyn Cole, will be holding four sessions on using YouTube for business. He’ll be tapping into your creative side and arming you with everything you need to get started.

What will the event cover?

The workshops will be delivered over four weeks. Each session is designed to move you through the various stages of producing your own content.

Session 1: Introduction - This explains what YouTube is and why you might want to create a channel. We’ll get you thinking about your channel and its content.

Session 2: Filming - This will start with defining content. We’ll look at creating video titles, how to approach scripts, equipment, video editing software, music licensing and thumbnail design. We’ll go through the ideal structure of a video and how you can get going with the equipment you have. There will be some homework to do before the next session.

Session 3: Video Editing - This will cover simple editing on a computer. We’ll look at free and paid video editing software and how to import your video files, edit them, export video and upload it to YouTube.

Session 4: Review - This final session is chance to reflect and review with a Q&A to answer your questions.

Each workshop session will take approximately 1 to 1.5 hours.
