Marques demos equipment options for every budget and skill level, creating sample videos to guide members along the way.”

MasterClass members will be able to follow Brownlee’s process on producing epic videos, from idea to execution, and complete hands-on assignments. The session is broken down into five sections:

  • Starting Your Process: After a brief recap of his career making videos, Brownlee will guide members through how to pick their next video idea and complete the preproduction planning.
  • Creating the Best Videos: Members will practice the tactical skills they will need to produce high-class videos, including lighting techniques, framing and composition.

  • Creating Better Visuals: Members will discover how to source and incorporate stock footage to further tell their story and shoot sample B-roll. Then they will learn the basic editing skills needed to bring visuals to life in their videos.
  • Packaging Your Videos: Brownlee will provide pro tips on choosing titles and thumbnails that pull in viewers. Members will walk away from this section with a final packaged video that is ready to post to any platform.

“I believe making videos, especially independent creation, is the best medium for expressing the most engaging story possible,” Brownlee said. “As a self-taught video creator, my class teaches members both the fundamentals and nuances of making engaging videos that will both build a following and empower them to create video content that they love.”
