  1. I found this course very interesting- as someone who is just getting into experimenting with shooting and editing video from my DSLR (or at least trying to) I found that this course helped me find a solid foundation to start from. I also really appreciated the few external resources to explore for more information and understanding of advanced topics. Sometimes all that you need is a good reference point with a few tips and tricks to get you started, this is exactly what I wanted and exactly what I got!!
