Jesse's lesson is super. Super clear, super concise with super content. Recommended!

Michael Schuh

Loved it from the start until the end

The Sections are very nicely balanced and the bts are super helpful as well. Also, I loved that you can have the material he shoots for the section and practice with it editing 👌. I'm coming from a working area that specified more in photography and I have to say that for me personally, I learned a lot of new things about videography.

Fun, Educational, AMAZING VALUE

I can't believe that this lesson is the price that it is. 100% snatch this up before Moment and Jesse realize they could charge 5x what they are charging.

Well worth it!

I am a small creator looking to gain traction in the world of online creation. This course for me was a reminder for me that planning your shots really does make a difference in how fast you can produce a video. It also reinforced the advice I have heard many times over. Sometimes you have to just let go and post the video. Tis course applies to short form social media(Instagram, Twitter, Tik Tok, etc.) as it does to YouTube. If given the chance I would buy again.

Jesse is descriptive but concise. Many of his shooting and editing tips work for a variety of creative disciplines. I learned a lot more than I expected and am a little less apprehensive about editing videos again. Extra happy juju from the Tokyo shots, as most of us are unable to travel at the moment, so it was nice to pretend I was on a Moment trip while watching this lesson. Thanks a lot, Jesse and Moment team!
