The Vidacademy was established 2015 to make mobile video simple for everyone. We achieve this through workshops, one to ones, online support and workbooks.

We empower individuals and organisations to share their stories with the world by demonstrating the best processes, apps, tools and platforms that they can use themselves.

The Vidacademy believes that once a person has the knowledge to make one video, they will have the ability and confidence to make many more.
