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.

Conclusion and summary.
Love Andrews courses, I have done many but decided on this one as you are never too clever to learn from a master and Andrew is a master and a seasoned professional. Thank you for your wisdom and insight into all aspects of film-making. Highly recommend ALL of Andrews courses.
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. I am very happy with this courser.
