Be in touch with a broadcast professional. I do my best to answer EVERY question posted to help you in your journey to learn great video storytelling.
Do you want to understand the creative techniques broadcast pros use when shooting for a TV show?
Would you like to be taught by a genuine TV broadcast professional?
Do you want to improve the quality of your videos, to the point where your audience can't get enough?
Are you moving from still photography to video, and are not finding it easy?
Are your videos just not getting noticed and shared on your YouTube channel?
As a professional video cameraperson, are you not getting noticed because your work is technically fine, but not creatively outstanding?
Then you have come to the right place.
Making great video is not some great secret that no one is willing to share. The trouble is, most video courses on the net are presented by filmmakers making wedding videos and low budget music videos or their own YouTube channel. Very few are broadcast professionals. The proof is that most courses focus primarily on equipment, which requires limited creative insight.
This course is different
I've been a broadcast professional for 37 years. And I've won international awards for my work. And I will now teach you the creative elements needed to make great videos. So, if you want to improve your videos to the point where they enrapture the audience and have them begging for more, know this: It is NOT about getting better equipment!
You will need video a camera, or a still camera with video capability.
Your camera can be any HD camera. It can be basic, or high-end. It does not matter, because, like the best stove doesn't make a great chef, a great camera does not make a great filmmaker
You should have some video shooting experience. This course is intermediate.
Ideally, you should also have some basic understanding of video editing using computers.

Certificate of Completion
Andrew St Pierre White has 37 years as a broadcast professional, with international awards to his credit. He understands what it takes to capture great footage and audio to make compelling videos— even as a low-budget indie producer. And, wether it be a documentary series, a 30-second commercial or a YouTube product review, he has done them all. His YouTube channel boasts over six million views a year and his commercials and TV shows have been broadcast all over the world.
If you spend a lot of time worrying about equipment, is it not the time you stepped up to being an artist or a professional?
Even if you understand codecs, and cameras and sensors sizes and lenses, it is not enough. Knowledge without skills can never create a masterpiece.
And that is why this course is about honing your creative video skills. I do this in two parts. This course covers easy to understand shooting techniques that are used by broadcast professionals being paid upward of $1000 per day. The second course, is the creative editing: Video Editing - Inspire your audience with creative flair. (That's a different course)
WE TEACH THE CREATIVE PART OF FILMMAKING
During this course you will learn what is needed to tell a story on video, while informing and entertaining the viewer, no matter who they are. You will learn the important elements that go to make up a story, the affect of the visual elements and the importance and affect of the audio track. You will learn to prioritise when shooting, to enable the editing process to be easy and intensely creative. By using the techniques taught here, you can become a great video storyteller. There are 42 lectures and 7 quizzes. Most instruction is by video, with examples and samples.
Part 1. Identify what kind of programs do you want to make?
Part 2. The five most important element of video storytelling. The importance of audio.
Part 3. From still photography to videography, information versus emotion. The effect that audio has on an image.
Part 4. Shooting techniques: The 4-second rule is the secret to delivering footage for the edit. I also teach editing-in-camera versus shooting for the edit, and more.
Part 5. Shooting techniques: Perspective, zooms, lenses, light, composition, perspective, shooting interviews and much more.
Part 6. Equipment ideas.
Part 7. Conclusion and introduction to the editing course
This video course is meant for those who desire to shoot compelling video. It ensures that your footage is ready for the edit.
This course is essential learning for any still photographer wanting to get into video.
We focus on creating great content. We believe that far to much emphasis is given to equipment in most courses available today.
This course may be too advanced for you if you have never shot stills or video before.
While we discuss the pros and cons of various camera tyres, if you want to know what specific camera, what lens, what codec, what lens hood to choose, this course may not fulfil all your needs.
At the end of my course, students will have a clear understanding of what is required to shoot for the edit. Their footage will not only be better, but better suited to great storytelling and audience retention.
You'd love to be involved in a crew on a set or shoot, but are concerned how to work with directors, producers and other crew members.
