About This Class

How to Make Exciting Travel Videos: Travel Filmmaking for Beginners

Are you interested in being able to film your vacation in a fun and engaging way? Do you wish you could make exciting, entertaining, and/or educational travel videos to share on YouTube and Instagram?  This course will give you the foundational tools you need to become confident in planning, filming, and editing your next travel video.

There's no magic formula for success, but there is a basic foundation. How to Make Exciting Travel Videos: Travel Filmmaking for Beginners will help you understand and implement it.

Students will learn the foundation in three phases:

  1. Lay the groundwork before you go:  What type of video are you going to make? And what kind of camera(s) should you bring?
  2. Build the story: What do you want to tell your audience? How do you tell them? And what camera techniques will you use to do so?
  3. Convey it in editing: How do you sort through all the footage? What's the best way to edit? What are some powerful editing techniques that will boost the quality of your video?

This class is built for beginners in mind.  It isn't about the technical know-how.  Here's what you'll need:

  • access to a computer with basic editing software
  • a camera you know how to use (a smart phone will do!)

At the end of this 30-minute crash course you'll have the blueprint that you can take with you on your next trip.  You'll also have learned practical skills to practice and implement immediately.

I hope to see you in the class!

Hi, I'm Randy! And I love video. Over the past 12 years, I've invested a lot of my time and money into learning video production. I'm college educated as well as self-taught. I spent a year living in Korea where I was also fortunate enough to travel all around Asia and experience new cultures and adventures. That gave me the confidence I needed to move to Hollywood and pursue film production full time.

I also love to share what I learn. And that's what drew me to teaching online. Learn...
