I can say that I have learned so much within 3 hours of this course than I have a year in Technical College. CHEERS TO THE TEACHERS IN THIS VIDEO!!!!! Thank you all so much!!

Harold12 November 2020

Great 'beginner' course. I wish I had taken this course before making videos on my DSLR. I would haveavoided a lot of mistakes.

Andrew11 November 2020

didn't know where to find my shutter speed had to youtube it. Which is fine but it could have maybe been explained more in detail where one would locate it or what it would be under

Shami8 October 2020

yes i can say that it is a blessing to take this lesson because since i was young i used to download different apps used to edit videos and i had smaller camera which i used to take those videos i could feel great to see the outcome after editing.

Wilko30 July 2020

I've done more courses made by Phil, and this is actually absolutely not one of his best. It is presented as a 'Video Production Masterclass', but actually as such the course itself isn't a 'masterpiece'. Sloppy editing with tons of jump cuts and repeating scenes, lower thirds full of spelling errors (several times 'Ligting' instead of 'Lighting' for example) and the scenes of Mitch and the illustrator (forgot his name) are irrelevant and pointless 'discussions'. The irrelevant discussions and sloppy editing really takes the potential fun away from this course. The idea is great, but this course looks more like a 'rough cut', than a final product.

Robert27 July 2020

Not very impressed by the lack of professionalism in this course. They didn't even bother to do second takes or edit out when they make mistakes.

Chris2 July 2020

I don't like leaving negative reviews, but this course is awful. For a filmmaking course to contain missed cuts and apologies for pour lighting is pretty bad.

John10 June 2020

A great course that starts with basic concepts and technical details and builds up progressively to cover all aspects of video capture, editing and production.

Koffi5 June 2020

"Jolie avec Rouge" now all things are clear for me. thank you guys, it was a bit difficult for me with some words because french is my main language, But I've learnt many from you. Thanks

Marcos5 June 2020

Great content. Honestly, English is not my first language. Therefore, I really enjoy watching videos with subtitles. Unfortunately, there are many videos with captions that don't match what's being said. This can be particularly noticeable in the videos covering lighting. All in all, this is a great course, and so far I highly recommend it.

Benjamin20 May 2020

Very helpful class. Using different examples between the lipstick ad, magic ad, and product shoot makes it easier to see what is being taught.

Abdull16 May 2020

Nice course, the content is very well done and did help me with new things I learned like editing, audio, and, lighting.

Khalid12 May 2020

You took this course, and previously you took the first course which is ((The Complete Video Production Bootcamp)) with your friends ((William Carnahan)) and ((Sam Shimizu-Jones)) Frankly, the first previous session of this course is very much for the following reasons: 1- Clarity and diversity in presenting information in an interesting and uninteresting way 2- I can feel the degree of variation in the level of experience between the speakers 3- This course (although it is supposed to be modern), but the way to record videos and products is less in level than the previous session 4- Practical experiences in the previous session are more practical and clear 5- The sequence in the videos is not sequential and shows that there is a large time difference between recording the videos, unlike the previous session completely My final evaluation: This course: 5 out of 10 Previous session: 10 out of 10 Note: The reason for taking this course is: I expected that there would be a better update of the information and experiences of the previous session, Unfortunately, I felt very frustrated and boring while watching this course ?

Dennis12 May 2020

I have taken other courses from this creator and have been very pleased. I am already enjoying what little extra I have already learned on top of what I already know

Mahendra9 May 2020

Very nice indeed. Happy with it. This course must be taken by anyone who is serious about making videos.
