Welcome to our online video course on the art of video production! The goal of this course is to teach how to create high quality videos, how to pick the right equipment, including the correct camera, right microphone, how to stage the lights professionally, how to prepare for filming, how to film, and how to glue the filmed material into a quality video.

In the pre-production phase, we'll cover how to plan your video and write a script, as well as how to select and set up the necessary cinematography and audio recording equipment and location. It's important to take the time to properly plan and prepare in pre-production to ensure the success of the project.

During the production phase, we'll go over how to set up your camera and audio equipment and start filming. We'll also discuss lighting and composition techniques to create a visually appealing and professional-looking video.

In the post-production phase, we'll cover using editing software and post-production tools, adding a soundtrack, managing files, creating titles, and color correcting the video. We'll also discuss proper file exporting techniques.

By the end of this course, you'll have all the knowledge and skills you need to create high-quality videos.
