From the time I heard about this review opportunity, I had a feeling it would appeal to my son since we have a YouTube channel that we post daily, and he’s always had an interest in film. More than not, I’ll find him behind the camera capturing the moments that are happening around him.
What is Online Christian Filmmakers Academy:
Online Christian Filmmakers Academy is a father and son run business. They have worked together in the film making industry for many years and offer their immense experience and expertise throughout this course. They have produced their Online Christian Filmmakers Academy as a wonderful alternative to the Rocky Mountain Christian Filmmakers’ camp that they run each summer. They have a wonderful passion for God and for using their skills to build His kingdom.
The five modules that you’ll cover as part of this course are:
• The Camera
• Cinematography and Lighting
How we used this program:
We use this program four days a week and let me say that Davis looks forward to it daily. In the first module, both Davis and I learned all about the different types of cameras and lens. While I have always had a variety of of lenses for my DSLR, I found this to be particularly helpful with doing our daily videos. We learned which of our lenses where the best option depending on the type of filming we are doing. Each module ends with a quiz that’s checked to see if you have learned the information that has been provided in the module. We are currently on Module 2 and continuing to love every minute of it.
So far, we have been very pleased with course. Davis and I do this course together and he loves learning more every day, and as a mom, I love that this is a Christian company that is teaching him to use his talent to honor God. Online Christian Filmmakers Academy has exceeded my expectations and we look forward to completing the course.
While they used a Canon DSLR for a lot of the video, there was a comment/question section under each film. This was a great way to ask question should you use a different DSLR like our family. I have always used Nikon personally, but they were very quick to reply to any questions or comments that were left after each section. While this is a course that you can do at your own pace, they are truly their to help and guide you along the way.
