Another wonderful workshop, this time on smartphone videography, was done on 17 September 2023 at Sing Lit Station.
There were more than 20 people attending, including me and our facilitator Sir Nicholas Chee and his partner Ms. Ying Tong. Everyone was interested to learn, showing enthusiasm to learn more about smartphone videography, including me. One participant named Jedidiah Huang, a Singaporean who joined in the workshop, shared: “I joined because I wanted to learn more about smartphone videography because I wanted to create my own vlog.”
The workshop taught us how to take clear sounds and use music and pictures to make nice videos. How to properly use microphones, how to make our voice clear… They even taught us some techniques to make our video more entertaining if the video is meant for fun. We learned to explore the Capcut app – how to make our videos better, cut the unwanted parts of a video away, put subtitles, and many more.
I sometimes do editing too but not so good, that’s why I’m so grateful to be part of this incredible workshop! Thank you so much Migrant Writers of Singapore, Sing Lit Station, Sir Nicholas Chee and Ms. Ying Tong! I hope for more activities like this in the future! It’s a big help for us foreigners or even locals who are starting our own vlogs, to help us understand more about the features on our phone.
Like what Sis Janelyn Dupingay said: “Thank you Sing Lit Station for this incredible workshop! I came to understand some features on my phone and learned so many ideas on how to record and edit a video!”
