WHY TAKE THIS COURSE?
The DSLR Filmmaking for Musicians course will teach you everything you need to know about improving your techniques of filming DIY video, help you become comfortable in front and behind the camera, AND help you understand the right equipment for YOU as a musician. And, let’s face it.. Ultimately, the most important thing that it will do in the long run is save you LOTS of time & money, because you’ll be able to make your videos all by yourself.
Being a musician is a daily grind…There is never enough time in a day to respond to fan emails, create content, write songs, perform shows, personal marketing, brand strategizing, creating artwork. It’s a constant battle! Not only that, but a lot of musicians (like me) just don’t have the cash flow to keep hiring people to create videos to promote their music… I totally get it! I didn’t have $$$ when I was just starting out either, but I still understood the importance of video and knew that I had to do SOMETHING. So I learned how to make my own videos, giving me the creative freedom I was looking for. This allowed me to promote my music visually, WITHOUT having to hire out the jobs or rely on anyone else.
If you take the course, you’ll finally be creatively independent with video! Along with hard work and dedication, creating videos will soon turn into something exciting, this is a promise. Get started on the journey of learning a new craft, while having limitless opportunities to practice and grow, by creating your OWN music videos as often as you like.
