How to Use This Site:

The tutorials are divided into two main categories: shooting and editing.  If you need help with shooting better quality footage that you can edit later, then check out the tutorials in the “Shooting” section.  If you need help with basic video editing tasks, then check out the “Editing” section. That’s it!  Simple, easy, and time saving!

For some quick inspiration, check out this amazing film. It was shot, edited, and produced by Casey Neistat,  a high-school drop-out who never had formal training at any university or filmmaking school. (Check out his recent talk at the Sundance Film Festival.)

 

 

This movie has been viewed about 18,000,000 times on YouTube and it was shot on inexpensive equipment, with no script, storyboard, or shot list. All that was needed was creativity, energy, and, oh yeah, a lot of money from Nike. (Some say that Nike’s budget was $4,000,000 and that Casey and his friend blew it within just 11 days of travel, although this has not been verified.)
