Introducing Two New Sections

You will notice two brand new sections to the course: the Workflow and Templates sections.

Workflows Section

The Workflows section is where I add long-form, complete workflow tutorials for different types of projects.

The first lesson in there so far is a software demo/screenshare workflow.

It is designed so you can see exactly how I would go about editing that type of project. Then, you can edit a similar project of your own alongside me.

Lessons are tagged for difficulty level and type of project.

Future workflow lessons will include: talking head, interview (single camera), multi-camera, cinematic, and more.

Suggestions for lesson types? Please share by replying to this email and I’ll add it to the queue!

Templates Masterclass

The Templates Masterclass is designed to teach you everything you need to know to make and use templates.

Templates, if you haven’t used them yet, are Descript presets.

You can templatize zooms, titles, captions, sounds effects, layouts, and much more.

Looking forward to 2024

I hope you are as excited as I am for the new year!

I have a lot planned for the course to make it even better for you. I’m grateful for your feedback and do my best to quickly make changes when I receive it.
