"The course is originally designed for smartphones, but offers much more: Filmmaking 101, no matter if you use equipment for several thousand euros or your own smartphone. You can always improve and even as an advanced content creator, I could improve the quality of my videos. Francis Rafal explains well and comprehensible what you need to consider making a video and how to make them look awesome!"
"I've set myself the goal of improving my video skills. In the past I already shot and edited some training videos (with rather low technical demands). The knowledge I learned here in 2 hours, I wish I would have known earlier! I am already looking forward to another course with Francis."
"Short and crisp smartphone video course that showed me everything I needed as an absolute beginner. I particularly enjoyed the essential tips on lighting, sound, picture arrangement and video vocabulary (f.e. A-Roll)."
Yes! We're starting from scratch and you'll learn the most important techniques in small easy-to-digest video bits. And you'll also find exercises to practice your learnings with your own phone.
The total time of the video lessons is 4 hours. However, we encourage you to also do the exercises to get the most value out of this course. The more you practice, the better your videos become.
That's perfectly fine. Use the phone you already own because all the lighting, audio and composition techniques you'll learn are universally applicable to all cameras. Video editing with Adobe Premiere Rush will work on all iPhones as well as Android phones listed here. (Adobe is adding new Android phones to this list in the future)
If you're Android phone is not supported, you can also use Adobe Premiere Rush on your Windows or macOS desktop computer or laptop. The editing principles are again universally applicable to all editing apps.
That's great! If you still want to learn more about lighting techniques to direct the attention of your viewers and how to shoot for the edit, then you'll still find great value in this course!
You'll be able to shoot interviews, video statements and event videos. And most importantly, you'll watch videos differently after this course and have more educated eyes to analyse why some videos look more appealing to you than others. That way you can improve your own videos by watching other people's videos.
You'll get full lifetime access to 4 hours of on-demand video and can watch it as often as you like.
You'll need your smartphone (iOS or Android) and the app Adobe Premiere Rush for video editing. Although it is a paid app, the free version is more than enough for this course. We'll also talk about additional equipment in this course but you'll be able to do most of the things just with the tools you already own.
