Create Pro Videos With your mobile device

Steady Your Device

Secure the device in a video case or bracket, and attach it to a sturdy tripod or rest it on a solid surface like a table or desk.

Record Clear Audio

Attach a microphone to capture high quality sound on the device. Use a directional mic on the device or a lavalier type mic that attaches to your subject's collar for interviews.

Use Natural Light

The window is like a big lamp that spills warm light onto your subject.

Frame Your Subject

Aim the camera at eye-level and get in close to your subject.

Edit Your Movie

Craft your story in the editing software on your device or a computer and export the final video to share with your audience.

Setup Your Video Kit

Contact a local vendor for educational pricing on a case/bracket, tripod and microphone.

Use a video case or bracket to hold the mobile device snugly.

Attach the case to a sturdy tripod to hold the entire rig in place.

Connect a compact microphone to record high quality audio on the device.

An optional pro video app unlocks manual features

The video camera built into your mobile device is pretty amazing as it is, so use it confidently. If you want to step up your manual filmmaking skills, an optional app like Filmic Pro app can give you full manual control over your video settings, including the ability to control and lock focus, exposure and white balance. You can also see the audio levels on your microphone.
