In CCI’s Catalyst program, we offer tips and tricks for how to leverage your smartphones to capture and create effective videos.


This is useful for individuals who have already watched our 15-minute primer on how to record video on a smartphone and who are interested in learning some tips for how to edit video to effectively tell a story through video.

Key Tips and tricks:

  1. Develop a rough idea of your story. Don’t worry about getting it perfect. The editing process will help tidy it up.
  2. Don’t overdo the video clip transitions.
  3. Use B-roll and overlay audio clips to add diversity to your video.
  4. The open and close of the video are special places to communicate. Opening sets context and closing leaves viewers with a strong message.
