What you will learn in this course.

Lesson 1: What should be in my video?

When I first started making videos it took me four hours of trial and error and research just to figure out how to export a video that wasn’t 120GB — that is huge. Two months into it, I realized that I had my camera on the wrong settings. I wish that I knew then what I know now. That is what we want to do for you, give you all the basics you need to create a video your audience wants to see.

I am also tired of seeing terrible videos online that miss the mark or don’t deliver the information well. So here is a chance for us to fix that problem.

In the first lesson, we’ll cover different content ideas for your first video and go over what format this content can take. Now that you know what you want to make I will cover how to actually capture that video in a way that won’t turn people off. Next up is how to get the video edited and posted. Finally, I will give you a couple of tips that will elevate your video above the others.

If at any point you have questions or want some advice on how to get your message across please contact me. See you soon!
