This course teaches the video fundamentals and how to make a great video story with any smartphone. The instructor shows examples shot with the latest models of phones, but also includes tutorials that feature older models. This is intentional.

This masterclass in filmmaking is designed to teach the evergreen techniques, the method for learning the language of video and filmmaking storytelling. You will be able to learn the art of filmmaking with any smartphone that you happen to own.

The instructor has won 21 international film festivals with documentaries shot with an iPhone 6S+. That is validation that the techniques shown here work in the real world.

We know people hang on to older models of smartphones and also many people can not afford the latest model every year. You will see humble Samsungs and iPhones used in many of the tutorials in this course and that is intentional. The key thrust of this masterclass is to help people learn that the ‘music is not in the violin.’

Learn the art of filmmaking with just enough technical detail to get the best quality results. No previous experience is required.

The learning modules in this course progress from making simple camera settings to advanced multi-track video editing.  

Pro filmmaker and journalism professor Robb Montgomery uses real-world examples to show you how to create compelling video stories with just your smartphone.

    So Much Have I Learned!


    The job of an online teacher is to focus on giving information in a seamless manner that juggles between a consistent flow of information that does not overwhelm. Robb has achieved this walking of the virtual tightrope. Great job, and I look forward to many future projects! I am absolutely stoked to document our adventures as we live our fourth quarter.

    Great learning


    At 43, it can be hard to set aside everyday life. This course allows for you to complete it on your terms. When and where you want to. Made tons of videos right from the start! My videos on Facebook and YouTube has gotten some great reviews even before I finished the course. Thanks for making it simple. Now I make the whole family videos.
