Tourism network hears tips for making videos
The Central Coast man who used a phone to win the 2008 New York Tropfest award for best film shared his top tips to the Tourism Central Coast industry networking audience at Ettalong Diggers on September 24.
Jason van Genderen ended his speech encouraging people to make a video about their business and to put it up on the Tourism Central Coast website.
He offered a smart phone accessories pack to the first ten people to meet the challenge.
Mr Van Genderen's three and half minute film No Man Is An Island was the first movie made on a smartphone to be entered into Tropfest. It cost him $56 to make and won him more than $30,000.
His business, Treehouse Creative, operates from Terrigal.
"You are your best business advocate so use that passion to tell your story,'' he said.
He said the ability to film and edit from a person's phone completely changed the game.
He passed on tips such as remembering to clean the lens on your phone, how to lock in the focus and change the exposure.
Two members of the audience came up on stage and were taught how to make a simple tripod from knitting yarn and a shadow box using a plastic bag filled with air.
