A group of 16 broadcasters from around the South East Asian region came to Kuala Lumpur for a three day Smartphone workshop from March 13-15.

Participants learnt how to shoot video, frame shots and compose pictures, choose good lighting, and use their phone apps to best advantage. They also learnt about social media usage and how to file smartphone reports to many social media platforms.

During a practical exercise, course participants were sent out to gather reports for a news broadcast, using only their smartphones to capture, edit and file their stories.
