Pugwash training day – DIY Video – Create compelling videos to spread the message

British Pugwash and Christian CND are co-hosting a media training day that will focus on how to produce compelling videos to promote a cause, explain an issue and reach new audiences.

We’re working with ShortForm Media (here), a video production company that creates content for charities, to design a workshop for Pugwash / Christian CND members and others in the peace movement to create great online content with affordable (and easy to use!) equipment.
