Description

Does it take you too long to make videos?
Do they turn out how you imagined?

Making great videos by yourself in a timely manner takes the right combination of knowledge and experience.

Creating videos alone is difficult enough without having to worry about whether or not the lighting looks right, the mic sounds okay, and if you are actually in focus. 

Whether you're too intimidated to make your first video or you're making them all the time, I'll share what I've learned the past few years making over a hundred videos for myself and clients like Pat Flynn, Fizzle.co, and Gumroad.

I believe that anyone can make great videos of themselves. It just takes patience, dedication, and the right amount of focused learning.

That's why I made this course.

Who is the target audience?
  • If you've started making videos with a DSLR and they just aren't turning out how you'd hoped, this is a great course for you. You'll get video lessons on picking the right equipment, the basics of lighting, what camera settings to use, capturing solid audio, writing your script, and delivering it to a camera. A great introduction to recording better videos.
