How to Make Great Videos - Beginners Creative Course.

Making great videos people love to watch isn’t rocket science—if you know HOW to TELL A STORY with video. Even the humblest product review, vlog or home movie comes alive when turned into a story.

The trouble is, most video training courses focus mainly on camera gear, teaching little or nothing about the CREATIVE side of making GREAT VIDEOS.

They forget that it’s not the gear that keep viewers coming back for more. It’s the ABILITY to SHOOT and EDIT footage that HOOKS the VIEWER from the first shot and keeps them riveted until the final frame. This is what captures and GROWS an audience.  

In other words: It’s the ability to tell CAPTIVATING STORIES with video that sets the proficient filmmaker apart from the amateur.

So, Lesson-1: CREATIVITY is more important than gear.

Lesson-2: The SOUNDTRACK will make or break your video.

Dramatic? Yes, but still true. If you want your movies to look and sound professional, you must understand the POWER of DIALOGUE, MUSIC and SOUND EFFECTS.

The Beginners Creative Course will teach you all this and more.

So, if you’re a new videographer and you want to go beyond showing off fancy cameras and gear to learn how to actually make a good video, then this course is for you.

This is the best video course on any subject that I have ever seen. Informative, concise, well planned, described, and engaging. Just like the films he inspires you to make. I wish I had seen this at the start of my filmmaking journey, it would have saved me mistakes and money. BRILLIANT!


David Kyslinger

What a great course - being a total beginner Andrew made me feel comfortable with all the equipment involved (you don't need much) but most importantly helped me find the story - the "why" of the film and how to translate that onto film. This is not a detailed software course but he does give an overview of all the important techniques needed when you're editing.

Damian Galka

A great course for beginners. What I like the most is focusing on these topics, which are key, and what many creators forget about: telling stories. Equipment is important, technique and skills also, but the basis should be the ability to tell stories and use video as a medium to present this message. I am very happy with this course and I recommend it to every beginner.


Apart from being a broadcast professional with almost 40 years of real filmmaking under his belt, Andrew St Pierre White is also a superb teacher.

He has earned literally thousands of five-star reviews on a major online teaching platform for his mind-blowing, yet easy-to-follow filmmaking courses. A true professional, he teaches complex subjects simply and without bombarding you with unnecessary technical jargon.

He invites you to get really good at making videos you can be proud of— fast.


Are you Ready to Get Creative?

The course is divided into five modules, each building on the one before. It covers everything from equipment and how to use it, filming techniques, and editing. By the end of the thirty-seven lessons, you will be able to make a complete movie people will want to watch and share.




You will need:

  • a camera
  • an external microphone to connect to that camera,
  • and a computer or laptop suitable for editing footage and sound.

Remember, creativity is more important than gear. That means your equipment does not need to be high-end or expensive to benefit from the Beginners Creative Video course. Basic gear will do the job perfectly.
