Your iPhone Video Studio for less than $100

While speaking at conferences around the country this past year, there has been one element of my talks that has connected with every audience, everywhere: my iPhone Video Studio. I'm not a video guy, but I've seen the significant need that ministry leaders have to efficiently create high quality videos for social media. Thanks to Amazon, here is an iPhone Video Studio that will help you create great videos for social media and utilize for Facebook Live:

  1. Tripod ($19.97): AmazonBasics 60-Inch Lightweight Tripod with Bag
  2. iPhone tripod clip (3.95): Adjustable Cell Phone Tripod Adapter, BLISS
  3. Lavalier Microphone ($8.95): Omnidirectional Condenser Microphone High Sensitivity Mini Professional Deluxe Lavalier Mic Lapel Clip-on for Apple Iphone
  4. LED Lights ($59.99): Julius Studio 160LED Camera Light Kit
  5. Camera Lens ($6.99): VicTsing Clip 3-in-1 180 Degree Fish-Eye Lens Plus 0.67X Wide Angle Lens Plus Macro Lens Camera Lens Kits for iPhone

All of the above added together totals $99.85. I have purchased and used all 5 of these tools and have recommended them to thousands of others (I am not an Amazon affiliate or make any kind of commission on these products). As 2017 approaches video will become more and more important on social media and I hope you will maximize this incredible ministry opportunity.

P.S. if you're looking for a good iPhone video editor, I can't recommend the Splice App enough! 

Free Course: iPhone Video Guide

Those who know me well, know that I'm quite the introvert and public speaking is not something I have pursued heavily.  Over time, I've come to really appreciate and value these opportunities though and love to share my learnings with leaders from all over the country and world. 

Speaking at conferences around the country has also provided me a great opportunity to learn through life experience what aspects of my presentations church leaders are most interested in.  One of the biggest things that I've found from these experiences is that video is becoming important to every church, no matter the size.  Every ministry leader wants to do more video, but it feels to complicated and expensive.

The exciting news that I get to share and thing that most ministry leaders are most shocked about is finding out that everything they need to create, edit and distribute great videos is already in their pocket.  This is why I created the iPhone Video Guide to simply communicate and demonstrate how truly easy it can be to create and share great videos using only your iPhone.

Now, I know many ministry leaders also use Android and 95% of this course is also applicable to Android users.  I however, have been a long time iPhone user and I wanted to share the content of this course out of personal experience and hands on engagement.  So, Android users please don't get upset and jump into the course.  Feel free to leave comments that share Android specific tips and tricks as well. I hope to get great engagement from everyone in this course!

One of the other decisions I made with this course was to make it FREE!  Honestly, there are no strings attached and I will likely charge for it in the future, but I would love to get this information out there to as many leaders as possible and get feedback.  I believe this simple course could exponentially increase the impact of any local church creating global media engagement.

P.S. It would make my day if you would consider sharing this free course with a friend.  Here's a pre-created tweet that you could copy and paste if you would like:
