What we're about
We're a Meet-Up for anyone interested in producing broadcast-quality video, audio and social media content on a smartphone. These devices put a mobile production studio in your pocket and have revolutionised how we record, edit and distribute stories on video, audio and social media.
It's now possible to shoot and edit HD video, produce radio shows and podcasts, and live-stream content straight to social media or file to a newsroom or website... all on your phone! If you want to learn how to use yours better, come along!
Who's it for?
We're a space for journalists, citizen reporters, PRs, content marketers and students to network and share knowledge, tips and techniques on smartphone apps and kit for IOS and Android. Whether you're a newbie or a professional, you'll learn something and meet great people.
Who's organising it?
This Meet-Up is one of several set up in the UK and abroad, inspired by MoJoCon (http://mojocon.rte.ie/)- the first international mobile journalism conference, held in April 2015 in Dublin.
The London Meet-Up was founded in late 2015 by journalism trainer Corinne Podger (https://about.me/corinnepodger), who's worked for BBC Media Action and Thomson Reuters Foundation, and Daniel Jackson (https://www.linkedin.com/in/daniel-jackson-52b61913), Head of Communities at Trinity Mirror. It is now organised by Daniel and John McHugh (https://uk.linkedin.com/in/johndphoto), founder of Verifeye Media (https://www.verifeyemedia.com), with support from Alison Gow (https://www.linkedin.com/in/alisongow), head of Digital Innovation at Trinity Mirror.
What to expect from a typical Meetup?
Well, it's free! And it'll stay that way, thanks to the hospitality of Trinity Mirror. Each month we get together for talks, workshops, 'show-and-tell' sessions to exchange ideas on kit and apps, and afterwards we pop across the street to All Bar One to continue the conversation over drinks.
What should I bring?
Yourself, your phone, and bags of enthusiasm!
If you RSVP....
Our events always book out, so please ensure you come or cancel your RSVP to make space for someone else.
