Origins of this free manual
It all started once upon a time in Anderlecht, a project of media literacy and social inclusion in the suburbs of Brussels.
It was the excuse Smart Videos was looking for to deepen an interest in digital education that has very ancient roots.

What does it take to become a smartphone video-maker?
1. Try, fail. Try better, fail better
The most important concept to keep in mind is that the more videos I take with my smartphone, the better they will be. When I have a little more experience, I can also start making a video a month.
3. Break the rules
Once following these rules feels as natural as drinking a glass of water, it is time to start breaking them.
Without a doubt, this is the most rewarding and significant moment in a learning journey, whatever the field.
2. Learn the 10 rules
Unquestionably, one of the most interesting elements of this free smartphone videomaking handbook are the ten basic rules to keep in mind when trying my hand at this discipline.
I discover them one by one and, above all, memorise them.
