Video Basics

$ 99.00

In our Video Basics course, you will learn everything you need to know to get started creating beautiful, high quality videos with a DSLR camera, as well as a smartphone. This course is taught by Jeremy and Elsie Larson. Jeremy has been creating videos for A Beautiful Mess as well as his own personal family videos for years. He is self-taught, so he understands the challenges that new videographers face. With 9 (plus two bonus) lessons, Jeremy and Elsie will walk you through everything you need to know to set up your camera properly, shoot great video in natural light, record quality audio, and edit it into something great.

It is recommended that students have a DSLR camera that can shoot video or that they are planning to purchase a camera soon. One of the first lessons will walk students through some basic gear so they can understand what to buy if they don’t already own everything they want or need.

This course is taught through videos, meaning you will want to be able to access the videos as well as audio in order to fully complete the lessons. This course also comes with a PDF that we recommend you download and save or print to follow along with throughout the lessons.
