Testimonials from past students
I found Aileen O’Meara’s video training a most practical and hands-on session, the sort of training I had been seeking for a long time. Her approach is informal yet instructive and... you get answers to the many questions that, heretofore, you were afraid to ask! A session with Aileen is a ‘must’ for anyone working in the PR and related areas.
- Tim Ryan, Public Affairs Consultant & Journalist
Excellent hands-on workshop packed full of tips that genuinely simplified the process of creating small, snappy mobile videos for clients. Aileen’s insider knowledge and experience of working in broadcast news media was invaluable.

I attended Aileen’s Smartphone Video workshop. It was great! We learned to film, edit and upload a short video by doing it. The result from the attendees were some very impressive, professional looking videos. I really liked learning about the underlying principles of making videos – like framing the shot, getting good light, and planning a storyboard. Aileen is clearly an excellent video producer with great skills behind and in front of the camera. I highly recommend the workshop for anyone who needs to make any kind of video and put it on YouTube (which these days is pretty much everyone).
