​About This Course

  • Learn vital and valuable shoot and edit techniques and stop yourself falling into the all too common traps of bad filmmaking.

  • Shoot great footage for the edit. Your footage will not only be better, but better suited to audience retention.

  • Love the creative process!


You will learn:

  • Cameras. A practical overview on what makes great self-content gear.

  • Microphones. An overview on capturing great sound.

  • Keeping out the shake. Legs, tripods, mounts and more

  • Don’t dwell too much on the equipment. It’s not as important as you may think.

While the marketing, SEO and thumbnails are important, they must take second place to content. Because it’s viewers wanting more content that results in subscriptions, fans, followers and income.

This course deliberately excludes the marketing side of YouTube so it can focus on how the great YouTubers became as successful as they are. Ask anyone of them, and they will surely answer, “I had the right content and the right time”. They are mostly too modest to add, "They had great content that people wanted."

I am annoyed by courses that boast unrealistic outcomes from YouTube. This isn't one of those. This course is for people wanting to join the wonderful YouTube family of successful creators –by hard work and effort. Because no successful YouTube channel was easy–although some may look it. And at the end of the day, its great content that makes a great channel. Everything else is secondary. And as importantly, creating great content means personal satisfaction, which means your channel will have a long and healthy life.
