Here's What's Included

This video is all about introducing you to the platform, course content, and activity feed.

This video is designed to help you build a vision for how you will use your videos to grow your business. We will look at the top three ways we’ve seen speakers, entrepreneurs and coaches actively grow their business with video.

A professional look starts with the right equipment. In this video we outline the items you need to create your virtual event setup and go over each item in detail. The full equipment list is included in the PDF that accompanies this video. We also created links below for you to easily purchase the supplies that will work best for you.

In this lesson, we take a look at two different virtual event setups so you can decide which you’d like to create in your home.

In this video, we learn how to never lose quality in audio or video when giving a virtual presentation.

If you’re using a Logitech webcam in your virtual setup, you’ve come to the right place. Here we learn how to actually set it up and use it.

You have a live event sizzle reel. But what about your virtual event sizzle reel? We’ve got you covered. In this video, we’re breaking down how to create and edit the perfect virtual speaker sizzle reel.

A professional look starts with the right equipment. In this video we outline the items you need to create your studio and go over each item in detail. The full equipment list is included in the PDF that accompanies this video. We also created links below for you to easily purchase the supplies that will work best for you.

In this video we demonstrate how DSLR cameras have changed the filming industry and made capturing a professional look more affordable than ever before. It’s time to lose the video camera and get a DSLR camera

Studio set up starts with the right camera settings. In this video we give you camera overview and show you how to adjust all of your settings to prepare for filming. You can follow along using the PDF and download it as a reference when you begin filming.

In order to prepare for a three point lighting set up, you will begin by positioning yourself and camera in the room where you will be filming. This video walks you through the steps we take to prepare for lighting a scene.

We took a semester of film school lighting classes and turned them into six-minute lesson. In this video, you will learn how to position your Key, Fill, and Backlight to create an eye-catching look in your studio. The accompanying PDF will be a great resource for you as set up each light.

Once you’ve done all the work to create a perfect look, it’s important to ensure you only have to do it once. This video shows you how to mark and measure your set up, so you can take your lights down when you’re not using them and always set them up in the same way when it’s time to film your next video.

Now that you know how to create professional look in the studio, we demonstrate how to do it using natural light. It’s important to be seen both as professional and approachable, therefore it’s a great idea to use the same lighting and filming techniques in a natural light setting like your home or office.

In this video we show you how to film like a pro! Once you know how to set your camera’s aperture, shutter speed and ISO settings, you will feel confident about creating a professional look for what ever setting you’re in. Make sure to download the PDF that accompanies this video, it is a great resource for making these adjustments in your camera.

The camera lens you decide to use is going to have a big impact on the look of your video. In this video we go over aperture and focal length, and explain some great options for which lenses to use in your studio.

If you’re wondering, “don’t I just take my tripod out and set it up?” The answer is yes! But, making sure you have the right tripod, set at the right height, in the right position are all very important aspects to consider as well. This video will walk you through those settings as well as describe how to use the four control arms on your tripod.

The quality of your audio is equally as important as the look of your video. In this lesson we discuss Zoom audio recorders and lavaliere microphones. We look and the pros and cons of each recording device and the ways to position your microphone to get the best sound. We also explain the many ways to use Zoom microphones beyond the studio in live performances, gathering testimonials, and interviews with colleagues.

Say goodbye to notes and do-overs — this lesson will make filming your videos a breeze. First, we demonstrate how to set up and film with a low-cost ipad/tablet based teleprompter. Then we go over the right teleprompter apps, allowing you to start, stop, and reverse sections of your notes from your smart-phone. Finally, we teach you how to create your scripts, transfer them to your iPad and display them on screen in a way that ensures you deliver your content in a natural tone and appearance.

Keeping your video files organized is not required, but it is recommended. Having an organized file structure will especially help when editing your videos, and using proper file names makes finding your video clips much easier.

This is usually where people freak out a little bit. Don’t worry, basic editing is all you need to take your videos to the next level, and it’s easier than you think!

Now that you’ve learned basic editing, you’re ready to add text and simple graphics. In this lesson we’ll show you how easy it is to lay some finishing touches.

There are just a few standards to which you’ll be held when it comes to audio and music files. It’s important to get your audio and video synced correctly.

The years of us showcasing our client videos on YouTube and other social media has shown us the importance of certain settings and practices. Here, you’ll learn how to upload to YouTube, but also best tips and tricks to help get your videos viewed.

“Our home studio setup has given us the confidence to know that we can crank out professional video content, anytime that is right for us. It would be hard to calculate the hours saved and the frustration avoided at this point. I can’t imagine how we could be this far down the road with our video work without the Home Studio Course.”
