About This Class

Video is now the world's number one method of communication.  It is estimated that the number of video cameras now surpass the number of people in the world.  Without a basic understanding of video cameras, you'll quickly be left in the dust.

Hi, my name is Marshall Rimmer and I'm a cinematographer who has been filming in high definition before the days of YouTube.  I know the ins and outs of Canon, Sony, Panasonic, Nikon, and RED.

Watch a sample of my cinematography here.

This class is designed for someone who hasn't used a camera with manual settings and is looking to shoot beautiful video without spending thousands of dollars on fancy equipment.

This class will teach you how to:

  • Use your camera in any situation
  • Properly expose a subjet
  • Put your subject in focus while making the background out of focus
  • Properly frame of a subject
  • Shoot indoors, outdoors, day, and night
  • Use existing location features to your advantage
  • Move the camera to reinforce emotion

You have helped me understand my Canon Rebel T1i so well. First DSLR camera gifted from a photographer friend who used that as her first camera. I knew how to work the functions, menus, etc. However, understanding the terminology and achieving the clarity/look I wanted has become way easier after your course. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.

Marshall provides a nice introduction to shooting quality video with a DSLR Camera. It was worth the 50 minutes.

Marshall was very precise and explained everything in layman's terms. The sequencing of topics was excellent, and I thought the content was well presented.
