What you'll do

We'll meet at Intramuros, one of the popular tourist spots in Manila, where I will orient you about the basics of mobile storytelling. There, I will give you a hands on workshop on how first to shoot photos and videos using your phone. This will cover some photography basics such as framing and the 5-shot sequence. As we go around the historical landmarks, you will learn how to use the various features of your phone. I will also let you use some of my basic mobile journalism equipment so you get an idea of what tools you can utilize later when you are on your own. I will guide you as you take your own videos and then I will teach you how to edit it into a video package you can post on social media for friends and family to see.

Learn more about Angeli

Angeli

I'm a multimedia reporter for the country's top television network with six years of journalism experience. I not only write articles and produce television reports but also shoot and edit videos for travel and work. I first took up mobile journalism (which is basically photography or video storytelling using a smartphone) several years ago through a certificate course at the Ateneo de Manila University. Since then, I have facilitated mobile storytelling workshops for universities and companies. In this class, I will teach you the basics of shooting photos and videos using your smartphone while exploring Manila. I will also help you maximize the use of your mobile device and teach you how to edit videos on your phone.

Where you'll be

We will start at the park in front of Manila Cathedral for the orientation. It'll be street photography so we'll be walking around until we reach Fort Santiago, a Spanish fortress, which has become a popular tourist spot. Here we'll shoot more travel photos and videos, which we will compile and edit into a video package.

Things to keep in mind

Cancellation policy

Any experience can be canceled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase, or at least 7 days before the experience starts.

Communication policy

Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside of the Airbnb website or app.

Guest requirements

Up to 4 guests ages 18 and up can attend. Parents may also bring children under 2 years of age. Just bring a smartphone with a decent camera.

Government ID

You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.

More tips

You will need to download a video editing app on your phone like iMovie, Kinemaster, etc. There are many free video editing apps you can download. Just ask me if you need help choosing. We will be walking so wear comfortable shoes and if possible bring a small bag only so you can easily move.
