Your Instructor Curious Pavel:

At the end of 2015, I started a YouTube channel not with the idea to become a YouTuber but to use it as a place to store my portfolio and track my progress. And it worked!

It was all thanks to my curiosity and persistence… and many, maaaaany sleepless nights.

Because when I started I had absolutely no idea how to film videos, let alone edit them.

But little by little things came into place. That YouTube channel led me to a full-time videographer role, and now I am freelancing video projects, along with other ventures.


I have also prepared a homework assignment for you once you finish this course. You will be editing the same project as me... for time!

Once you complete the course, I will send you instructions!

Good Luck & Stay Curious!
