With so many of us working remotely due to the CV-19 pandemic, there has been an increased interest in using smartphones to create video content. It’s mostly for social media use, but we’ve also had clients who wanted their CEO to be able to send update messages to their remote working employees. On line communications with Zoom, Teams and Remo have brought groups together virtually, however, there is a growing need for communications with clients and employees on a more direct level where they are looking for information that will build confidence for their return to business. The good news is that most smartphones have a good video camera on board, so with a few tips and a little planning you can get some very interesting and memorable footage which will create good memories for the future and help prepare for a confident return to business.
Here are some top tips to help you get good results from filming on a smartphone.

Who said you should never work with children? We’ve found when you know the right people it’s a pure joy and so we thought we’d share some background on a recent project where we expanded the benefits of encouraging intergenerational communication between nursery children and older adults.

My name is Lucian; I’m currently doing a Film and TV level 3 course with The Bucks College Group, and today (3 April 2019) was my first day at Take One TV doing work experience. Read this blog to find out what I got up to.

On Wednesday the 6th of June I went on my first shoot with the Take One team. Read my blog to find out how it went.

We arrived at the location with only one sequence and a small piece of trailer dialogue left to shoot now. We went through the same pattern as the last two days with setting up the equipment and keying the lighting while also doing sound checks.

The next day was another early start (I was over it by this point!) at Take One HQ. We gathered the equipment and rushed to the location just ahead of the school rush hour. We arrived and were greeted by a warm plate of food. Yeah I forgot to mention this part earlier! The staff at Chartridge Lodge kindly provided us with bacon sandwiches (they even had gluten free variants for the likes of myself!) which is a lovely feeling, especially on a cold late November morning!

On the 30th of November Take One wrapped up a 3 day shoot which I was a lucky enough to be a part of. We were filming 5 segments of content for the “National Learning Trust”. The large majority of the filming required a well known individual within Education, who had also been a director at the NLT, to share his stories and methods of teaching to the camera with the intent of using this video content to help teachers get the best out of themselves and their students while teaching.
The last 3 days have been a mixed bag of (positive!) emotions. These were feelings such as excitement, responsibility, pride and an eagerness to learn. One thing I can safely say is that I had an amazing experience and am hopefully looking forward to many more experiences like this as part of the Take One team!
