SOUND LIKE YOU?
- You've purchased the GoPro (or are considering)
- You brought it with you on adventures/vacation(s) and captured lots of amazing footage, stoked!!
- You get back home. One day passes, 10 days pass, 3 weeks go by, 2 months go by and boom! 6 months and you STILL haven't touched the footage you've captured with your GoPro.
- Maybe you really want a GoPro but all the technical shhh-tufff is too much for you.
WHAT IF IT DIDN'T HAVE TO BE THAT WAY?
All the buttons/settings on the GoPro were no longer a big, fat question mark to you?
After you've filmed something with your GoPro you knew exactly what to do with the footage to make a sick video
You knew exactly what settings to use for any situation
You understood the basics of editing so that you could finally get all that footage off your memory card and into a video you've produced
You weren't the one scrolling Instagram or Facebook and thinking, "Wow that looked hella fun, I wish I could make a video like that about my trip.."
You were the one sharing your experiences/adventures with your friends and family and actually documenting those memories
I'm super excited to share something I've been working these past couple of months that will definitely help you....
A step-by-step video training course on how to shoot and edit videos using your GoPro
Breaks it all down for ya. From understanding correct settings to film with to editing your footage and sharing the video. I'm here to take out all the guesswork for you so that you don't need to feel disappointed with the footage you capture or videos you edit.
One of the biggest pain points a lot of my close friends and family say is that they have tons of footage, but just don't know what to do with it. This course teaches you how to import that footage into editing software so that you can finally create a video to share.
This course will also get you comfortable with the film settings on your GoPro. Many of you may just want to take it out of the box and just hit that record button... well... there's more to it than that. I'll teach you the film settings within the camera so that you maximize the camera's fullest potential.
If you've purchased a GoPro it absolutely 1,000% is not a wasted purchase. These versatile cameras are incredible powerful. (p.s. no I am not endorsed by them, this is solely my opinion).
If you've ever thought about getting a GoPro I always recommend it to my friends because they are perfect for family trips or spontaneous adventures.
About Your Instructor...
I created this course because over the past couple of years now my friends and family have asked a lot of the same questions about video production.
And... they all had a GoPro.
My goal here is to cover questions like, "What settings do I use? How do I start editing? etc." and provide other tips and tricks I've learned over time. Having gone through the process of figuring things out on my own I consolidated all of that into this course so that I can save you the time to try figuring it out yourself. I wish I had this course 3 years ago haha.
A little more about me...
I'm a videographer from Northern California. I spent four years of college at a small liberal arts school in the midwest where I found a love for videography and have produced video for over 6 years now.
My work has been featured on ABC, NBC and the Huffington Post and I've helped his clients gain national attention with my videos.
I've produced literally 1,000's of videos for clients like professional athletes, national organizations, established entrepreneurs and been asked to travel to places like Peru to film.
I literally knew nothing about video production and never studied it in school, but knew I wanted to pursue it. It was too fun and a lot of people needed it for marketing themselves.... so, after graduating with no job, I decided to leverage Indiegogo's crowdfunding platform and raised a couple thousand dollars for video equipment. The Indiegogo campaign page is still up and can be seen ➝ here.
I want to help people like you get started with video because I know it can be done without going to an "official video production class." There's nothing more fulfilling than creating something and sharing that experience with others and to be able to teach others to do the same makes it that much more awesome.

More than just GoPro footage, his course has been a segue towards my creative journey through videography and I can't wait to see where it takes me. I owe it all to Michael!"

What is "CREATE AWESOME GOPRO VIDEOS START-TO-FINISH?"
This course is an online, go-at-your-own-pace video course that you can access at your convenience. Each section has several modules within it.
How long do I have access to the course?
Forever. After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like across all devices. I'll be updating the content within the course too. You won't need to pay additional costs. I'll simply notify of the new content.
What if I don’t have a mac?
Currently, this course is only for those with a mac because we are using iMovie. I plan inserting modules on how to use GoPro studio later, however, if you choose to enroll without owning a mac you will still have access to the filming modules. The current modules will be a great intro for whatever editing program you choose.
Do you have a course for other editing programs?
Not yet, but as mentioned above I plan on creating courses for GoPro studio, and Final Cut Pro X.
Can I access all of the modules right away?
Yes, it's instantly available after your purchase is completed.
What if the course isn’t working for me?
Let me know within 30-days of purchasing and if you prove to me that you've gone through all the modules and still got no value out of it, I'll refund you 100%.
Is this course for PC or Mac users?
Currently, all video walk-throughs are showing a Mac and iMovie is only available on a Mac. In the future I will be updating the course and provide trainings on GoPro Studio which is available and identical on a PC and Mac.
