With a rise in demand for video
communication and fall in production
budgets, all corporate marketers/
communicators should develop DIY video
production skills for 2014. Adding a few

increase your smartphone video quality.
Most of these easily fit into any manpurse, so you’ll always be ready when an
opportunity presents itself.
