Video School 101


Categories: ,


Who else wants to learn how to make great videos?

Back before I started creating them in 2000, I thought video was a dark art, full of mystery. Maybe that’s how you feel. Maybe you’ve tried to make them, but what you have in your mind is something different from what you see. I know that frustration, too.

You probably think that it takes years and years of study and tens of thousands of dollars to learn to do video, but in this class I’ll teach you the basics in just a few hours. Maybe you’ve even tried to search the internet to learn how to make videos and make them better. If you have, you’ve probably been disappointed by the fact that there’s a nugget here or maybe another one there, but they’re few and far between. You’ve probably spent more time looking for how to do video than learning how to do it.

So is Video School 101 different? Yes.

I’ve recorded five classes with you in mind. Invest just a few hours and you’ll have a solid foundation to build on. Take a look at what’s included:

Individual lesson videos, MP3s of the lessons (in case you’d prefer to listen), an eBook of the notes, a student only forum, and an occasional Q & A.
