The Vidacademy was established in 2015 to make creating mobile video simple for everyone. We achieve this through workshops, one to ones, online support and workbooks.

We empower individuals and organisations to share their stories with the world by demonstrating the best processes, apps, tools and platforms that they can use themselves.

The Vidacademy’s One Day Mobile Video Production Workshop takes a deep dive in mobile video production. Participants will be guided through the video production process from planning to uploading. The workshop gives attendees the chance to apply what they’re learning to their objectives. This includes filling out workbooks, filming interviews and editing their footage together.

We used The Vidacademy to support our participants to shoot and edit their own videos for a recent showcase event. I was delighted with the videos and the feedback from the audience at the event was great. Judie has that great ability to combine a relaxed and sunny disposition with an attention to detail, professionalism and project management expertise which makes it very easy to work with her. I will be using The Vidacademy again.  – Liam Fitzgerald, New Frontiers Cork
