Instructor Biography

Uri Soglowek, Entrepreneur, Marketing Consultant, Video Maker

Since 1993, I have dedicated myself to learning and teaching how to shoot and edit professional video to people that who have no understanding in the subject without getting them all confused with the technical nomenclature.

Today every Mobile Phone has the ability to become a production platform and online video is the biggest, most expanding communication line of the planet.

My way of teaching is usually, taking you, the viewer with me while I do a whole project, from beginning to end, utilising the same techniques I used as an instructor to get you to be able to do the get the job done and use and apply the tools with confidence.
