A great course with the quality I actually already expect of Phil's courses. Concise, to the point and with a high information density. I love how the actual course is separated from the 'behind the scenes' videos in the last section. Recommended for everybody who wants to feel more confident in front of the camera.

Phil and Christian, you guys are so awesome. I really enjoyed this course and I will be using what i have learned to start my YouTube channel. I would like to upload some of my work as soon as I can. Thanks for this brilliant, practical course.

Helen2 July 2020

I am about to start my own YouTube channel and I want to learn how to have a strong online presence especially in front of a camera.

I work for a national legislature and I'm looking both to get more confident on camera for personal video projects, but also to sharpen my direction as I shoot a lot of video with members of the public and elected officials and when confidence wanes as I point my camera at someone, I don't always know what to do to help bolster someone's energy! So far, this course seems informative and light with a clear expert at the helm.

Tarek12 April 2020

The course at all amazing. Christian is a mazing, confident and also has authority. this course add for me so much. keep going... excellent.

Katz26 September 2019

I only went halfway, but the episodes are pretty short and mostly seem appropriate for someone who wants to be a news reporter. It was a waste of my time, I later found free online places with better training for appearing on camera.

Leonardo14 August 2019

The whole content of the course is within class #39, in as much as 5 minutes. Having taken the video production and the Premiere Pro courses, I was expecting a high level course, where I could find valuable tips and multiple lessons that could take me to a level I couldn't get just by Googling those things. Instead, I feel I've gotten a pretty basic content. I won't ask for a refund or anything because you guys put work into this and I did watch all of it. But it was really disappointing and not up to the standards of Video School Online. The snippets of Christian's work are really disconnected from the rest of the course. After seeing the first report, I thought what would come next was him discussing what he was doing there, what techniques he was applying and such. Instead, it's just that, no explanations, no discussion. I hope you guys can add more classes to this course to make it truly invaluable.

Excellent course with great content, 2 great teachers as well, have done a couple of Phil's courses and love the way he teaches, this course exceeded my expectations, thank you guys. Superb.

Dario29 January 2019

Good course on camera confidence. Being an extrovert I was expecting more pro tips for going "above and beyond" with filming myself, but most of what is given here is leans more towards "common sense" than anything else. Please don't think I'm saying this is a bad course, because by all means I believe it is a good one, but it felt more like a refresher course about things I already knew, and I consider myself a beginner. All in all, I do recommend this course for complete beginners, especially if you tend to be on the shy side.

Andrew28 August 2018

Outstanding course delivered by two very experienced instructors. It was just what I needed to help me look more professional and at ease on camera for the new YouTube channel I am creating. I am so happy to have found this program highly recommend it!

John18 July 2018

I think the short - to the point - videos make this class more enjoyable. I really like how you have structured the course so far and the tips you have provided.

LuV25 June 2018

Hi Phil and Christian, Great job on the course. I enjoyed every bit of it. It brought about some vital points which i hadn't thought of and which i will definitely use while starting my youtube channel. I am a naturally introverted person so i needed some encouragement to pursue making my own videos. This course has paved a way to proceed further and overcome my own shyness. Really brought home the following point: Practice.Practice.Practice.Feedback.Practice Thank you

Alexander11 May 2018

Thanks guys for creating this amazing course. I really learned a lot. Hopefully I'll be able to apply all the lessons that I've learned throughout this class. I really enjoyed it! Cheers!

Gary7 May 2018

The instructors were great and should be a must for anyone who speaks in front of a camera I would like to see another course on journalism where you would go 0ver the basics of writing and production of a good story Good work and thanks Gary Swain

Matthew10 April 2018

Highly recommend this course. These guys have obviously had a passion for this since their formative years and to me it rare to find this kind of expert in this field. On top of that, they pull back the curtain and give strategies and exercises that will enable you to improve fast if you do the work. I've completed 50% of the course and have already had my biggest struggles have been dispatched. I am looking forward to the rest of the program. Another thing that you need to consider about this course is the fact it is loaded with examples of Christian's professional newscasting experience, so the course is not all talk, it walks the walk.
