The short answer is "yes." You need to know how to use your computer. You don't need to know anything about video editing. I'll show you everything you need to know. 

Short answer: absolutely. Imagine you are watching over my shoulder as I explain how to use the tools of video editing. The material is presented in a clear, easy-to-understand manner. 

Each new concept is broken down into chunks. I call it "chunk style" learning. Like working with video building blocks. Learning is incremental, building upon what you already know. 

Using "chunk style" learning, no video is more than 3 minutes long. Some are as short as 45 seconds. Whatever is needed to get the point across precisely and concisely.

I respect and value your time. So no fluff, no rambling on. This is a "shenanigan free zone."

I've been told the amount of material is overwhelming. My only suggestion is to treat this as you would a very large book. Take it one page (video) at a time. Knowing this is a lifetime membership should help, as there's no timeframe in which you must understand everything. 

The time it takes is up to you as your work at your own pace.

You will be part of a larger community of learners who share their work in a private space accessible only by other students. 

Take all the time you need. There is no rush and no deadline. This is meant to be an enjoyable experience.

Yes. You can pay a lot less for courses on the web.  You can also get a lot of information for free.

Look. If you're tried searching the free stuff, you know how that goes. Here's your chance for an exclusive membership with personalized content and a real person you easily reach by email or phone. 

There's an old saying, "You get what you pay for." It's true and applies to the contents of this course.
