Free drop-in session on how to create a video Tues 13th May

The Public Engagement Working Group (PEWG) is pleased to announce a second support session for our ‘Less Talk, More Action’ video competition. Shawn Mayall and Angela Slater from the MDS web team have kindly volunteered their time to host a drop-in session for anyone who might need some extra support in putting together a video short for the competition (or other public engagement activity).

They will be on hand to answer questions related to editing and processing short videos, as well as offering useful guidance on the planning/filming stages. Attendees are encouraged to bring their filming devices (cameras, Ipads, phones etc.) with them and to come ready with all their questions and footage (if they already have that) so that they can make the most of the session. Angela & Shawn have already recently put together a wealth of resources on the topic online HERE but the drop-in session will allow people to ask for more specific advice if needed.


‘Less Talk, More Action’ asks researchers and research students to present their research in an engaging video for the opportunity to win £200, with winners from each college. Deadline to enter the competition is May 30th at noon.


The drop-in session will take place on:

Tuesday 13th May, 12.00 – 1.30 pm

Sport and Exercise Sciences G84 Computer Cluster


We hope to see you there! Drop in anytime between 12-1.30 pm. Thank you to all attendees of our first support session with Malcolm Love which focused on presenting to camera, developing a script and other practical content questions.
