Here's what students are saying about the course so far:
"I know that video content is the future, but I had no idea how to start before taking this course! I've completed the first five modules and I'm already feeling more knowledgeable and confident. My brain keeps thinking up new projects I want to try out. It's a lot of fun and I highly recommend it to others who want to dive into video! " -Julia

"What Videos Will I Learn How to Make?"
PROJECT 1: "SERVICES I OFFER"
This first project is a simple video explaining your services to your ideal client. I walk you through how I planned, filmed, and edited mine for use on my website.
This is a great first impression for clients visiting your site wanting to get to know you.
PROJECT 2: "DEMO VIDEO"
For this project you will research an idea of your own that you want to share with your audience such as a demonstration. In my example, I walk you through how I edited the equipment video in module 4 of this course.
With this project you will learn the value of B-roll and camera angles.
PROJECT 3: "PRESENTATION"
The final project shows you how to create a slide-show style video presentation with a little more flair. In my example, I walk you through how I created one of the course lessons.
Online courses are a growing part of online business and a great way to scale your business.
"What if I'm a Newbie?"
No problem! This course is designed for beginners!
The modules and lessons walk you through editing step-by-step and there are resources along the way to help you succeed.

What software do I need for this course?
This course utilizes iMovie, Final Cut Pro, and Canva. You will have the easiest time moving through the content if you use these editing programs. I chose these because they are what I’m most familiar with and iMovie is a great free option to get started with. Final Cut Pro is a great paid option to transition to if you want to continue growing your editing skills. Canva is a popular online program many dietitians are already using, so it’s a great resource to take advantage of for creating video content.
What equipment do I need for this course?
At minimum you will need a camera and a computer with editing software. I use a smartphone to film, a Mac to edit on, and see previous question about software.
Will this course teach me how to edit YouTube videos?
Yes! This is a perfect course to get started with learning to edit videos, including videos you plan to upload to YouTube.
Will this course teach me how to edit cooking demos?
Yes! The skills you will learn in this course will enable you to edit many different kinds of videos, including cooking demos.
Will this course teach me how to edit videos for online courses?
Yes! The skills you will learn in this course will enable you to edit many different kinds of videos, including video content for online courses.
How long should it take me to complete this course?
It really depends. It’s a self-paced course and I set it up so that each module should take you about 1-2 weeks to complete if you spend about 1-4 hours each week working through the content. Some modules have more "homework" than others so some may take longer. I expect this to be a 12 week course, but you have lifetime access to the content so you can really move at your own pace.
How long do I have access to the content?
All enrollments, other than student discounted enrollment, have access for the lifetime of the course. Student discounted enrollment comes with one year of access.
Does this course include 1:1 coaching?
No. However, you will be granted access to a private Facebook group where you can ask questions about the course content and 12 weeks of email support. So, you can email me if you have any questions that you’re not comfortable sharing in the group.
Do you offer refunds or a money-back guarantee?
If you sign up and start to move through the content, but find you’re not thrilled with the course, I offer a 7-day refund policy.
In order to qualify for a refund you must contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org within 7 days of purchase AND have consumed less than 15% of the course content.
I do this to maintain the integrity of the course and accompanying materials.
Do you offer student discounts?
Yes. Fill out the application here. Contact me directly at email@example.com for information about student my discount. “Student” applies to undergraduates, graduate students, dietetic interns, and those who are exam eligible.
Do you offer BIPOC discounts?
I struggle with tech, is this easy to follow?
Each editing module takes you through step-by-step how to create your video, add text, insert audio, and add various effects. If you’re worried about ease of use, I suggest checking out my course preview to get a gauge of whether this course is right for you. If you still have concerns, please feel free to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will this course teach me editing in Tiktok and Instagram?
No. This course will not be teaching editing directly in the TikTok or Instagram apps.
What if I use a PC and NOT a Mac?
I suggest purchasing this course if you use a Mac. You would likely be able to glean a lot of information from the course, but it may be challenging to follow along with the projects using PC software. Please contact me if you are still interested, but unsure of the value the course will offer you. Sara@thekerrminator.com
Will this course teach me how to use a DSLR camera, filming equipment, etc?
No. I do show you my equipment, but this course does NOT go into detail on how to use the equipment, videography, photography, etc.
Does this course offer CEUs?
Not yet, but it's on my radar for the future if there is enough interest.
Still have questions? Let's chat! Sara@TheKerrminator.com
