2-Day Courses


Do you want to be able to produce high quality videos for your business or your website or do you just want to be able to make great home movies that people will actually want to watch?

We run two-day intensive classes in New York City and The Guardian Newspaper in London. These classes will teach you everything you need to get started, how to shoot, how to tell a compelling story and how to edit using Final Cut software. By the end of the two days you will have produced your own short film and will understand what it takes to make a really good video.

It doesn’t matter if you don’t have your own camera and laptop, you can rent them from us and no experience is required.

Of course, you’re already part of the way there because you know what great video and film looks like. You see it all the time on TV or at the movies or online. But how do you get it to look so professional? It isn’t hard.

We’re going to walk you through a very well-defined step-by-step process that is going to teach you how to make perfect video every single time, no matter what the subject matter, no matter where the location. Whether you’re planning on creating compelling video for your own website, using video to enhance your business presentations, using video to sell your house or your car, or even yourself; or just making great home video, this is the course for you.

In the course of the 2-day session you’ll actually go out and shoot all the elements of a video piece. Then you’ll script it, track it, edit it and screen it for a professional critique before you take it home.

Working with your personal instructors, you’ll learn everything you need to know to produce professional quality video on what is essentially home-video equipment. It’s fast, it’s cheap and it’s simple to do, once you know what to do.
