Student's testimonials
Robert Mullins
Jeanette Allen
The video editing training course is wonderful and very efficient. The program is very competently drawn up - the main basic concepts and elements of the program are given, which can then be studied independently or, by going to the next course, studied extensively with the teacher.
I have been looking for such a YouTube editing course for a long time and, fortunately, decided to study here. It was a wonderful 5 weeks of online video editing classes, thanks to which I was able to learn the basics of the filming process, met wonderful professionals in their field, studied and tried the necessary equipment for filming.
Dora Patterson
Impressions from the online filmmaking classes overwhelm me. Well, first of all, the result is obvious: myself and relatives noticed that the quality of my video filming has improved significantly. The course is aimed specifically at the creative side of the process, but includes many psychological aspects. Much attention is paid to the commercial side of the issue: how to communicate with the customer.
Brian Hill
I think these video editing lessons for beginners are a great opportunity for those who are taking their first steps in video production to immerse themselves in this very interesting process for 5 weeks. During the course, we shot a short film together. The best ideas, which entered the film with the go pro action camera, emerged during the film, were not planned, but became the "highlight" of the picture.
A Personal Certificate will be presented to you after you have completed the course.
