Instead of buying the full Video Journalism Masterclass, you can buy the course in three parts instead. This is part two.

A fully comprehensive, award-winning training course that takes you from the very basics of filmmaking: what kit you need, how to approach the filming, identifying the story, what to shoot, how to film the interviews and how to get the best shots out of the camera. Specifically aimed at beginners or early professionals using a professional or semi-professional camcorder, this course helps filmmakers shooting for news, documentaries, corporates for online or mainstream network broadcast.

Based on the same course used by professional broadcasters around the world, organisations such as the BBC, Archant, Press Association, Al Jazeera and others, this course won the EDF Creative Media Award for its contribution to video journalism for BBC staff.


Anyone wanting to become a professional video journalist, or any established video journalist wanting to improve their skills to become more employable or to simply make better films.


The course can be used as a stand alone master-class, but if you have access to a small, digital broadcast camera you may find it useful to work along in parallel with your camera and kit.


To bring any self-shooter, video journalist, self-shoot producer or shoot-edit cameraman to a level of professionalism that would make them employable by any mainstream global broadcaster.
