You're in the right place . . .
Do you need a non techie video road map?
Do you want a real expert to make this easy for you?
Do you need a crash course in camera confidence?
Do you worry about spending tons on expensive kit?
Do you wonder how others have time to create video?
Keeping up with all the latest video trends and learning a new way forward was hard for me too!
I had years of being a director and producer on set on various TV shows and corporate film shoots.
I had a parking space and cameramen and sound people to worry about all the techie stuff and a cheery runner to get me my morning latte!
Life was good. . .
Everyone suddenly decided they wanted to have a go at shooting their own content. Traditional video crews were deemed way too expensive. Social media went video
gangbusters, video budgets were cut and the world of DIY video creation dawned. I was running a successful video production company but I realised I had to change my business model. All my experience producing hours and hours of top TV content was not something clients wanted to pay for! Cheap videographers were hitting the market and promising the earth. How could I pivot the company forward in this radical new video market?
You study, you get your first job as runner, you work late nights, you make tea, you get promoted, you deal with presenter tantrums and celebrity rider requests, you make it to producer and finally become an exec and you love your job. Then just when you find yourself at the top of your chosen career ladder - the video world changes the rules!
Sure I knew how to carry on making great cost effective video content for those clients who wanted to outsource all their content, BUT I knew I had to come up with an idea fast to help so many other potential clients who had no video budget. The small business owner, the course creators, the start ups and the solopreneurs who all wanted a way to get into the video game. I knew my expertise was needed and I could really help a whole new generation of business video creators.
Everyone you look you feel like you are coming up against a wall. Even if you do have half a clue about video, you don’t have the time, the experience, the techie skills, the confidence, good looks, or the equipment in order to get going. And to top it all, you just feel like you are a failure in this video obsessed world. How come all your competitors seem to churn out great content and look good on camera too. You worry that your business is going to get left behind. Maybe you are starting to wonder if being successful at creating your own video content is something that only other business owners get to do – like having tons of insta followers or having successful mega launches.
AND YET, FANTASTICAL AS IT SEEMS...
IT'S NIGGLING AWAY AT THE BACK OF YOUR BRAIN
WHAT WOULD IT BE LIKE...
I created Smartphone Video for Smart People to help you learn how to create professional smartphone videos, be confident on camera, figure out how video can grow your business online, learn practical, simple and quick steps to get you freed up and be a video success in your chosen field.
Smartphone Video for Smart People offers a choice of two affordable online courses that are designed for busy business owners like you. Both courses offer easy to follow video modules containing insider info, advice and game-changing expertise that can be accessed to suit your style of learning.
I am a video expert based in the UK. I started my career as a theatrical agent, working with comedy talent, then moved into TV where I worked as a producer/director and presenter for over 20 years. I have made a huge variety of shows and worked with more celebrities than you can shake a stick at and survived! I also worked as a celebrity stylist and I have written three books on dating, money and fashion.
In 2008 I set up Violet Productions shooting innovative and brilliantly shot online videos at cost effective prices. The company very quickly established itself as one of London’s top boutique production companies delivering professional, compelling and memorable films for clients in all areas of businesses and on all sorts of budgets.
Today the company continues to work for a large number of agencies, charities and companies who choose to outsource their content delivering everything from 15 second social media content to full one hour documentaries and everything in between.
As video quickly evolved and smartphones became a popular shooting choice, I realised some years ago that my expertise was needed in this new video arena and I began running workshops in London and then across the UK, teaching a huge range of clients how to shoot professional video content on a huge range of devices.
In 2020 I put both my courses online to reach more people who want to learn the simple way to smartphone video success and it's proving to be very popular.
There are a ton of other people out there who can teach you smartphone video but I know from what you tell me that you love the way I cut through the noise and that you trust the fact I have over 30 years of TV and video expertise.
I use a system that actually works, so you can stop wasting time and get moving. I am also an experienced presenter so I know how to make a learning experience engaging, effective and way more fun than you would expect possible.
I am on a mission to help people like you create brilliant video content to grow your
business and share content that you are really excited about. Unlike other more complicated courses we get you going the easy way and fast!
SEE what some of my past CLIENTS have to say...
Jay Hunt is just brilliant at delivering the best ever smartphone video course.
Fast clever and fantastic to work with plus everything you could ever need to know in just one day.
This course was such a big win for me, so many areas covered.
I found the modules super easy to follow and loved working at my own pace.
I am already making new marketing videos, this course is well worth the price and Jay's
coaching is my first step into my new world of great video production.
Thank you Jay.
Jay taught me how to set up, film and edit videos on my smartphone twelve weeks ago. Since then I have created a 12 module coaching course with 37 videos! I honestly can't believe how simple the smartphone video for smart people system is and I'm so proud of the quality of videos I've created! Clients tell me how professional my videos look and can't believe I do everything so quickly on my phone. I am now creating wellbeing videos for corporate clients which I easily customise and sell with quick logo and theme edits.
Jay's Smartphone video for smart people online course is everything that I could ever have hoped for! I shot a film for myself after doing the course that got me well over 20,000 views on Twitter. Jay's practical tips and encouragement are inspiring!
I’ve always been so reluctant to do too much video as I couldn’t grasp how to make it look so professional. I’m eternally pleased Jay and I connected and I’ve had the opportunity to work through her course. Now I’m not feeling like a headless chicken and knowing what gadgets to use to make things so much easier has been such a massive help. Thanks Jay.
Jay's Smartphone Video Course has been invaluable for me and my team. She made the technical aspects of filming and editing appear simple and easy to understand, it was fun to do and I have gained much insight and inspiration. I am using the skills I learnt already and our videos are much improved. Knowing the right bits of kit to purchase to make the most of my iPhones has been brilliant. I would highly recommend this course for anyone that needs to create beautiful, professional content in house.
