Video production. There are thousands of online video production courses, so why should you enroll in this one? This is the longest, most comprehensive, and most in depth video production course in the world on the specific niche of how to make human beings come across their best when they are speaking on video.

The missing ingredient in so many video productions is having a compelling, interesting, engaging human being speaking. So many courses on video production get lost in the details of lighting, editing software, and the latest technology with video cameras. Of course, all of those things are important, but if all you do is focus on the technology you can still end up with the boring, lifeless, and uninteresting video.

If you are only going to take one video production course, then this should not be your course. But if you’re serious about producing high-quality video then you should take this course in addition to others that cover all the basics on the technical aspects of video production. Frequently, great video production features compelling human beings speaking on camera. If all you do is obsess over lighting, graphics and animation you’re doomed to create mediocre video.

If you are creating videos for online courses, YouTube channels, Facebook pages, email marketing, website content etc. then you are likely featuring yourself or somebody else speaking on camera. You need to know how to make that person come across great. Because if you have great lighting, great editing and beautiful fonts, none of that matters if the person speaking on video seems flat, or bored, or boring, or uninteresting, or low energy, or bland.

If your video production is going to be high-quality then you need to know how to direct talent speaking on camera, even if you are your own talent. This course is longer and more in depth on the subject of directing talent and then any other video production course on this platform.

Message from the instructor: "I’ve been producing videos with experts, politicians, CEOs, and business leaders around the world for more than 30 years. Most people are simply not great at speaking in a convincing way in front of a video camera. They must be directed, coached, and advised in a certain way to make them look and sound their best. In this course, I share with you all the secrets I’ve learned from coaching more than 10,000 executives before their media and on camera experiences." TJ Walker

Please note: this course is not designed for video producers who are exclusively focused on cartoons, animation, special effects, and pure image-based video productions.

This course is meant to supplement at least one other course of your choosing that covers all the technical aspects video production.

Technicians, editors, and production assistants are increasingly seen as a commodity in today’s world wide video production employment marketplace. If you want your video production skills to really stand out and for you to be seen as a first class producer then you need to know how to be a great director and to bring out the most compelling presentations from anyone speaking on camera in your video production. This course will teach you how.

Here is what Udemy students say about this course:

"Full of great information, without the fluff. Great instructor, and great presentation." David Lee

"Direct, well organized, motivated facilitator, great course!" Brenda Newby

"Lessons are short, but packed with information. This course covers much more topics, than I expected. Lectures are interesting to watch, easy to understand and all of them could be used to improve any video with talking heads. Great course!" Tihon Sergeenko

These are areas that you must know already or that you must go and master before considering implementing any of the techniques in the course. Also - the course is not hardware specific and is not designed to teach you about how to set up any of your own drone hardware or specific handling skills for that hardware.

Drone Videography. How to get the most out of drone cameras.

Find the wow-factor in every shoot. Abundant B-roll and how to fly for the best shots.

If your desire is mostly creative excellence, then you will find this is one of very few courses available anywhere that focuses on the creative aspects of drone videography. A camera mounted on a flying machine is a magical tool for storytelling. Let me show you how.

This course does not teach technical drone operations and flying techniques. Instead, it shows you how to use the drone as a camera platform. These are two very different disciplines.

I'm a storyteller and professional filmmaker with 35 years in TV production and YouTube, and I have like so many before me, had to come to grips with the ability to place a camera almost anywhere I want. But in this learning curve, I have realised that drones are far easier to fly than they are to operate as a flying camera. It's so easy to get good shots. But to get a remarkable shots, isn't. And to get shots useful in an edit environment, is even harder. Aerial footage has become commonplace, to the point of being ordinary. This is because the new generation of camera drones are remarkably easy to fly, and have opened exciting portals to creativity. But here is the challenge: Only by capturing remarkable footage can one's creativity stand apart. And what's more, two skills are required to get the most out of a drone camera: You need to be a good pilot, and videographer as well.

This course is for those that need help mostly with the second part. While we demonstrate these skills with consumer-oriented photographic drones, all these lessons apply with even the most advanced, heavy-lift machines.

Subjects in this course include:

  • Take full advantage when positioning a drone camera.

  • Plan shots before takeoff.

  • The vital key to success is the 10-second rule for abundant B-Roll. The biggest problem - solved.

  • Camera settings for best quality and continuity.

  • Constructing a sequence. It's a camera. So treat it like one.

  • Consider the story. What are you trying to say, show or share?

  • Depth and perspective.

  • Speed to fly. When to track. When to pan. When to circle. When to just leave the camera still. The second biggest problem - solved.

  • Using the drone as an extremely tall tripod.

  • Using the drone as a low tripod. Just because it can go high, doesn't mean it should.

  • Image composition principals are often overlooked, but remain the same.

  • Shooting scenics.

  • Building a sequence with multiple cameras and angles.

  • Ever thought about making the drone a character in the story?

I hope you will enjoy and learn much from spending this time with me. And if you want to leave a review, I have one request. Add reasons why you enjoyed, or did not enjoy the course. This is the only way students that follow you will learn from your experience. And the only way I can improve the courses I make.

Life Memories are valuable, and fleeting. There is huge value in capturing them the right way on a smartphone.

Do you want to ensure the memories of loved ones, friends and family, are preserved for you and future generations the right way? Without spending excessive amounts of time and effort?

This online course will teach you how to capture life memories using proven storytelling techniques and approaches.

This course is designed to teach you the ins and outs of capturing life memories with a smartphone by showing you the art and craft of how to plan, map out and produce them. While there are other courses about smartphone interviewing, it's hard to find a course that gives you a step-by-step insight into capturing stories professionally that really will be a resource now and into the future.

This is the course for you, taught by Larry App who has personally made dozens of films of this kind. The principles and methods he teaches in this course can be applied by you today. His approach to the interviewing process is especially noteworthy.

"I'm glad to share with you from my experience over the years of helping people capture their life stories.

After taking this course, you'll appreciate the privilege and the honour of someone trusting you enough to bring you inside their personal life.

You'll know that you have done a great thing by helping someone leave a legacy with creativity, authenticity and style.

You'll experience the gratitude of the person and their family and their friends.

Those who would find particular value in this course would be those who are interested in preserving someone else's story.

Also, those who are interested in preserving their own story - and that might be you.

Local historians, genealogist teachers, students, writers, retired folks, journalists, family and friends.

This course is not for those who are interested in only the technology of capturing life stories, and those who capture life stories professionally and are satisfied with their own style.

What you'll get from this course is how to recognise a story, how to use various techniques that can be used to bring a story to life using only a smartphone and a love and appreciation for stories for their own sake.

I invite you into this course with a warm welcome. What you will learn here will set you apart from others because you'll learn to capture life stories with creativity, authenticity and style.

Looking forward to seeing you inside the course!"

Are you tired of filming aerials that don't excite your audience?
Don't worry, you've come to the right place. Let me teach you how to shoot professional aerial videos with your drone.

I will teach you everything you need to know to boost your skills, become a pro and never ever record boring videos with your drone again.

But who am I trying to make you enroll in my course? A newbie? A hobbyist? Or a true professional?
My name is Tom David Frey. Filmmaking and droning are two of my greatest passions - and they're also my profession.
I work in the professional drone industry for more than six years. And shooting film is part of my DNA. I grew up shooting videos (short films, documentaries, ...) and won prizes in several countries (f.e. Germany, France, Denmark, and the US).

Also, you might already know me from YouTube, where more than 200.000 people follow my work and enjoy my content.

But now, let's focus on the course. What do you get?

  • 5+ hours of video lessons

  • 43 lectures

  • Plenty of knowledge quizzes

  • Printable cheatsheets

  • Original footage

  • Years of experience packed into one thrilling course

I want to find out (and so should you before enrolling) if the course is actually what you're looking for. Let's get started with some questions.

Have you ever wondered why recordings that looked great while shooting turned out flat and dull?

Have you asked yourself whether capturing professional-grade aerials is at all possible with a consumer drone?

Did you come to the conclusion that other people's aerials must look better because they can travel to exotic locations and seem to have better gear? Better drones, better software, better editing computers?

I know all of these questions myself. And how they often make you feel. They can turn great passion into a major disappointment.

After countless hours of research, endless talks with industry leaders, and hundreds of shootings, I discovered how professionals capture aerials. And I will share my knowledge with you in this one-of-a-kind course.

Don't expect to be bored or overwhelmed.

Creating this course has taken me one full year. I have never released that much information about aerial cinematography before.

I know what it takes to become an aerial professional because I took the same path as you.

You will learn everything that you need to know to capture professional aerials with your drone. If you enroll, study diligently, and, most importantly, practice, you will become a professional aerial videographer.

Six main categories of videos will teach you everything you need to know:

  • General course, safety and flight Information

  • Developing a story

  • Picking the best gear and preparing a drone shoot

  • Weather and daytimes

  • Aerial videography (this is the most important category of all and by far holds the most lessons)

  • Post-Production basics

Within these categories, the course covers a broad range of topics, such as:

  • Which drone to buy

  • Planning and preparing for an aerial shooting

  • How to find unique locations

  • What's the best time of the day to shoot aerials?

  • Can I shoot aerials while it snows or rains?

  • Everything you need to know about filters

  • Common mistakes and how to avoid them

  • The best aerial perspectives

  • Compositions that will make your aerials stand out

  • How to add excitement to your aerials

  • Post-Production basics

  • How to handle high-res videos on a low-budget computer

  • Special tricks to enhance your aerials in post-production

... and many more!

Stay tuned, fly safe, and elevate your vision!

Football is one of the most popular sports in the United States, and as such, coaches from youth leagues right up to high schools and beyond are more often seeking quality videotape so they can break down the film, evaluate players and strategize for future opponents. The problem is, there are not enough talented videographers to record their games professionally. Sure, anyone with an iPad can pan back and forth to follow the action, but that method sorely misses the details in player identification and following the action closely enough, and it also lacks context such as penalties and down and distance. Plus, what do you do if you have no elevation to shoot from, or if it rains?

My course How to shoot football games like a Pro details everything you need to know so that you can more adequately capture a game at any level. You might be a videographer looking for an extra revenue stream; maybe you're a parent looking to get better footage of your student-athlete; you could also be a student or assistant coach tasked with filming high school or youth football games for your team. Either way, this comprehensive course will show you everything you need to know to be able to record football games with professional results. Your instructor has been running a successful sports videography business for over 15 years, and uses actual game examples and techniques to turn you into a top videographer who will soon be in demand for your services.
