Description

There's no question about it, video is the most powerful communications tool.  

Why do you think that this site is so popular :).

From teaching, to promoting, to informing and entertaining, it can play a huge role in your business and brand's success.

You may want to hire a production company, or a producer, or you may want to start producing videos yourself. 

With smartphones, and pocket cameras, it probably seems easy. Point and shoot. 

However, there is a right and wrong way to produce a video, especially if it is for a client and needs a special touch.  You should have a solid team, a plan, and know how to execute.  

This beginners course  will teach you the three steps that are part of every successful video production: the plan, the production, and the edit.

You'll learn what goes into a well thought out plan, and how to execute it from idea to final draft.  

As a bonus, a script template is included for free download.
