Your Crash Course on Making Videos Like a Pro

101 Steps to Making Videos Like a Pro


Start here. This short and easy to follow guide is your crash course to making videos. After talking to many aspiring video creators, C.C. Chapman and I have created a simple blueprint to help guide you through the process of planning, shooting and editing your video, as well as what’s involved with getting your videos online and promoting your videos through social media. Just follow our 101 simple steps from start to finish and you can quickly learn how you can make videos like a pro.

Far beyond merely being transformative and disruptive, video on the web has become a kinetic force of nature – hugely influential due to the tremendous level of engagement and response it generates–far more powerful than any other current form of media. Because most Internet video can be enjoyed and shared through practically every smartphone, tablet and laptop on planet Earth, it has the potential to cast a global spell at the speed of electrons. That is some serious mojo.

After years of talking about doing a book like this, and finally growing sick and tired of all the bad advice out there, we’ve finally pooled our years of knowledge to pass it on to aspiring video makers like you. We even tapped a few of our expert video creator and marketing friends like Scott Monty, Ann Handley, Steve Garfield, Mitch Joel, Casey Neistat and Lynnette Young for the kind of valuable pro tips that are only gleaned from decades of experience in the trenches. We have been in your shoes. It’s because someone laid out a breadcrumb trail for us to follow down our own paths for success that we feel inspired to break down the process of making videos into a simple blueprint you can follow to plan, shoot, edit, upload and market your video like a pro. 

101 STEPS TO MAKING VIDEOS LIKE A PRO is available in Paperback and as an ebook exclusively on Amazon

Updated Pink Floyd Holiday Gift Guide for 2013

Updated for 2013, find that special gift for the Pink Floyd fan in your life.

DARKSIDE, TOM STOPPARD – A PLAY FOR RADIO INCORPORATING THE DARK SIDE OF THE MOON BY PINK FLOYDImagine an abstract and compelling audio drama influenced directly by (and utilizing) the music from DSOM. Holy cow, right? This was created this year by BBC Radio 2 to rave, rave reviews–including a raves from David Gilmour and Nick Mason!

PINK FLOYD: BEHIND THE WALLA brand new history of the band, including Roger Waters’ latest Wall Tour, illustrated with more than 250 images, including live performance and candid off-stage photographs, as well as rare memorabilia like gig posters, concert tees, picture sleeves, backstage passes, buttons, and ticket stubs, this is the kind of book that every Floyd fan will want on their shelf.

Ready to go beyond just the music of Pink Floyd? INSIDE OUT: A Personal History of Pink Floyd by drummer Nick Mason is a fascinating read that goes back to the earliest days of the band back when Nick, Roger Waters and Richard Wright were all schoolmates, through the early heydays with Syd Barrett and of course everything else. Told in a wonderful casual pace in Nick’s own words, it’s a one-of-a kind documentation from the man who was not only the actual inspiration for ‘Animal’ from the Muppets, but the cornerstone of the rhythm section for the band since the very beginning.  Just a heads up, INSIDE OUT is a bit hard to find, but there are copies out there if you look hard enough.
TEARING DOWN THE WALL: The Contemporary Guide to Decoding Pink Floyd – The Wall One Brick at a Time is a must-read for any serious Pink Floyd fan. This is an engrossing book that reveals all the hidden meanings, messages and Easter eggs in one of the greatest rock albums of all time and lays it out in vivid detail so you can understand what kind of amazing mind-trip THE WALL is truly all about. It’s a great read that not just only puts the magnifying glass on the philosophical side of THE WALL, but allows the reader to revel in the absolute genius of its creator, Roger Waters.
