Video integration into your social media platforms can increase your reach exponentially. There are so many easy-to-learn mobile apps, video equipment, and editing platforms that can make your organization shine when it comes to video production. Attendees will see first-hand on how to tell a story through the use of video. Content can then be uploaded to social media platforms for greater reach. This course covers the right equipment to buy, simplified editing platforms, and how to maximize your finished product. Gone are the days where an individual had to have an extensive knowledge on video-based technologies. There are so many ways to produce high quality content that will marvel your bosses and wow your audiences. As an added bonus, attendees will find out how to receive free money to purchase equipment. The Arlington Police Department has pioneered the way in promoting public relations and citizen engagement through video.

p style=”padding-left: 30px;”>Paul Greene, Director of Communications, RCMP, New Brunswick
When a shooter killed three RCMP members in Moncton last year, the need to communicate with residents in the area was critical. With local radio stations automated, television not broadcasting a newscast for several hours and the local newspaper behind a paywall, the New Brunswick RCMP’s Strategic Communications Unit turned to social media to not only share information but assist investigators in catching the killer.  Today, the New Brunswick RCMP has one of the largest social media followings of a police force in North America.
