Since 2011 I’ve been teaching people of all ages how to be more creative with smartphones and tablets. I coined the phrase/title “Made On A Mobile” in 2016.
Learn to shoot, edit and share creative video content armed with nothing but a mobile phone (or tablet). Apple or Android, it doesn’t matter.
Do you work in communications? Are you an educator? Do you have your own business?
Having videos to help you do what you do is getting more and more important. Ten years from now I may be out of a job because my kids (young teens) take this stuff for granted. However, if YOU still want to be working in 2029 then now might be a good time to catch up.
As of March 2021 #MadeOnAMobile has been attended by close to 1000 participants. Here’s taste of where they’ve come from?
- Skills Development Scotland
- National Museum of Scotland
- V&A Museum Dundee
- The Open University (staff in England and Scotland)
- Comms teams and teachers/lecturers from several local authorities across the UK
- Small business owners
For evidence of what people get out of the workshops then please watch the following film captured October 2018 in Stranraer with a group of small businesses owners.

My workflow is entirely iPad and iPhone due primarily to the stability of the software. My experience of Android is less extensive but mixed. https://amzn.to/2TxxMCm
Left: Lightweight tripod for tablet or phone
Right: iStabilizer Ipad/tripod adapter
– There are many cheaper alternatives to the iStabilizer,
however, I’ve had mine for six years now and it’s a
quality product that I trust with my iPad’s life ;)
