Gather Your Family And Friends Around The Couch For Your Movie Premiere

One of the best feelings in the world is when you finish editing a movie you're proud of and you gather your friends and family around the couch to see the premiere. When the movie starts to play I guarantee you will become giddy in your seat and want to jump out of your chair :)

Editing your own videos is one of the most satisfying hobbies I know of. You will be pleasantly surprised with how much creativity comes out when you start editing your own videos.

In this course you will go from complete beginner with iMovie to confident in your ability to create your own movies that you will be proud of. 

Apple Has A Knack For Balancing Beautiful, Easy To Use Products That Are Capable Of Serious Work

If you don't have any experience with video editing before iMovie is the best piece of software to start with (keep in mind, it's only for Mac users!). iMovie is the easiest video editing software to use but it's also loaded with great features. 

Since you're a Mac user you know how much time and effort Apple spends balancing their products to be beautiful, easy-to-use and capable of serious work. iMovie is no different. In fact, iMovie is one of the pieces of software Apple has spent the most time refining.

iMovie is a breeze to use and learn and with it you will be amazed at the videos you can create. It will take some work and practice on your part. Then, once you learn how to use the software and become comfortable with it, it's a skill you will have for life. 

Editing Films Could Easily Become Your Next Favorite Hobby (I Know It's Mine!)

As I'm typing this it's hard for me to express how truly fun and satisfying editing movies is! I wish I could share this feeling with you through these words but you will have to start editing to experience it yourself. 

It could soon become your favorite hobby! And you will create living memories (videos) that you and your family will not only enjoy watching now but 5, 10 years from now could make for cherished memories :) 

I've worked hard to share my passion for video editing and explain how to use iMovie in the simplest way possible. In the basic editing section of this course you will get up-to-speed with editing your first movie in no time. Then I've added 3 advanced sections to teach you the iMovie skills that I guarantee 90%+ of the people who use iMovie have no idea exist!

These advanced editing techniques, advanced video effects and advanced audio effects will deeply unleash your creativity and take your videos to the next level! 

Get Ready To Experience Flow State While Editing Your Videos

So excited to have you join this course and express your creativity while creating living memories. If you've ever experienced a taste of flow state before you are going to be blown away by editing! 

I get in flow state more often from editing videos than any other activity I can think of. (If you've never heard of flow state before it is the feeling where you are so absorbed in a task that's challenging but not overwhelming that you lose your sense of time and self).

Anyway, enough of me blabbing. Hope to see you inside this course and when you finish your videos make sure to share them with me here on Udemy!

Have a great day,

  • Someone that is new to video editing and would like to learn how to use iMovie
