About This Class

Join celebrated cinematographer/editor and 16-time Vimeo Staff Pick winner Matty Brown for a fun class on low-budget filmmaking tricks that can help you achieve an emotive, indie-inspired look.

You'll learn Matty’s experimental in-camera effects that you can achieve with any device — including one that involves a Ziploc bag. Plus, peek inside his creative editing workflow to bring all the pieces together.

Whether you’re making a travel video, short film, documentary, music video or personal art piece, Matty’s DIY approach will inspire you to think outside of the technical settings and shoot with heart. Anyone can participate, even if your camera is your iPhone.

Follow along with Matty on a walk around New York City, and see what imagery he captures along the way!

Matty Brown speaks candidly about his philosophy and approach. Well worth the time to watch and review.
Great lesson, totally different from the ones that teach you how to press buttons.
