Mobile Video Journalism Training

Mobile Journalism Training

Mobile Video Journalism Training for teams and individuals produced by Robb Montgomery and the Smart Film School.

A mobile video storytelling workshop for yourself, your school, media company, or comms team is an excellent investment.

Training in mobile video production can be productive and tailored to your strategic plans.

Training can take different forms.

1. Training just for you

You can choose to either study for a few days with me in Berlin and get personalized coaching or make a self-study and earn a certificate with a Smart Film School course.

Professional development
I also produce private certificate training in Berlin for media people with professional development grants. (For example, Producers and senior managers from the BBC, Al Jazeera, Reuters, and other broadcasters visit me for personalized coaching on the latest mobile video techniques and equipment.)

2. Training for your team

I produce training workshops (online and in-person) for media development teams led by organizations like WAN-IFRA,, IREX, United Nations, Red Cross, American University Cairo, and the Thomson Reuters Foundation

At universities, I lead week-long StoryLab seminars and ‘for-class-credit’ class projects as a visiting professor.

I produce Filmwalks for the International Journalism Festival as well as multi-day Mobile Journalism training bootcamps for reporters at media companies like BILD, Mediacorp, SPH, VRT, and Radio Free Europe.

Contact me to produce a workshop with your team. 

3. Training the entire organization

Campus licenses for my certificate courses are available for Media Organizations, universities and NGOs – allowing everyone on staff to have the same exposure to new skills.

This type of effort is vital for organizations making culture change a reality.
Bulk discount pricing is available along with options for certificate issuance, customization of curriculum, bundling of courses, and instructor-led support.

Clients include: the United Nations, WAN-IFRA, International Committee for the Red Cross, BILD, 24 SATA, Russ Media, EFJ School of New Journalism, Journalism CO UK, University of Bedfordshire, University of Notre Dame, FH Voralrberg, and the Danish School of Journalism.
