Becky Wood

"Film has opened up a whole new world for me and Leanne gave me the tools to do it. It's super fun, creative and I loved having a finished product. The Lens11 cheerleading squad kept me going all the way to our movie premiere at the end! I can’t recommend Press Record enough!"

Faye Kenny-Broom

"Press Record is a brilliant way to understand not only the concepts of film making, but how to apply practical techniques to create professional videos. There is a considerable gap between photography and filmmaking, and I went from knowing barely anything, to producing a film I felt proud of."

Rachel Cox

"Thank you for such a brilliant course and getting back to me so quickly with my questions. I’ve found the course extremely well put together and enjoyed the process of learning something new. Lots still to learn and take in but will look forward to continuing to learn the art of video thanks to this course!"

Your roadmap to film-maker looks like this...


Setting Up Your Camera for Filming and Storytelling


Leanne will be covering equipment, editing software, film sharing platforms and music licensing subscriptions, before moving on to camera settings.

You'll learn recording speeds, filmmaking terminology, and the importance of shutter speed, exposure and aperture. You'll cover story in depth and how a variety of shots convey different emotions. You'll end Module One with shot compositions demonstrated on video.



Stabilisation, Filming Techniques and Motion


You'll learn how to stabilise shots using a camera strap, before familiarising yourself with different shot types, and how to capture them. This will be demonstrated on video for you to replicate.


Focus and Lighting 




You'll learn how to focus in filmmaking and how to use different techniques to add something special to your films.


The Edit - Stage One



We'll dive into Adobe Premiere Pro and music. An introductory video will explain how the software works and how to import music to enhance the mood of your film. You'll learn to cull and cut clips, and how to add them to your timeline to match music markers. You'll be shown how to add effects and transitions, and how B-Roll brings your film to life.

At this point, you'll begin editing your film with a 30 second timeframe in mind.


The Edit - Stage Two



In this module, you'll hit colour grading, and how to apply various edits across multiple clips. Leanne will touch on adding a second sound to merge with the existing music.


The Edit - Stage Three



In this final editing module, you'll be able to personalise your films by adding text, logos and subtitles. You'll learn how to add end credits, before finalising your film and reviewing the edit to avoid blank space. Ideal export settings will be explained and Vimeo.
