With your smartphone, shoot a one-minute move of someone you know making a coffee or tea. Edit together a few different shots (simple to use editing apps like Splice and InShot make this easier than it sounds, even if you feel tech challenged) And try to use assorted styles of shooting, such as zooming, tilting, and panning. The film should be silent, not narrated. Watch your results, then sketch out a rough storyboard, record again and edit. When you’re satisfied, upload your video and have friends or family watch …. Ideally this process flings you into the learning process, and help you reframe the way you see yourself – “not as an expert more as a beginner, but as someone who can respond quickly to new information…and that is empowering.
