Everyone is different, so we have created three different ways to learn in Digital Videography 1. Each of these ways gives you access to the video lessons forever, but have different timelines and types of interaction with an instructor.
Complete the curriculum in 8 weeks by watching videos, shooting assignment photos, and meeting with your instructor online once a week for a critique of your work and to view the images of your classmates.
Specially designed for moms and anyone else who wants to work at their own pace. You have 6 months to complete you assignments. You’ll receive a recorded video critique of the images you submit instead of a live session.
