About

Unscripted Studio

Make videos you love - using only what you can fit inside a backpack.

BEING ABLE TO MAKE FILMS GIVES YOU A PASSPORT TO THE WORLD

Learning filmmaking gives you a universal language for connecting to anyone in the world.

Unscripted Studio is how I share my real-life filmmaking knowledge in a way that's fun, easy to follow, and most of all inspiring!

I’ve made award-winning videos without a script, large crew, or excessive gear. It all comes down to one key skill: improvisation.

This is everything you need to get started making videos or to take your filmmaking to the next level.

YOU GET OVER 30 HOURS OF TRAINING

THE BASICS

All the essentials! Storytelling basics, camera setup, frame rates, audio, natural light, editing, sfx and transitions.

THE GIMBAL BOOTCAMP

Detailed tutorials of each basic gimbal move. Plus focusing on gimbal, and complex gimbal moves using older gimbals. 

THE HANDHELD BOOTCAMP

Stabilize your camera without gear! Plus handheld camera movements and “shaky cam”.

THE EDITING BOOTCAMP

Make your editing powerful. Step-by-step tutorials on importing, stringouts, transitions, sfx, and exporting (FCP X only).

THE GIMBAL MASTERCLASS

Beginner to advanced gimbal skills. Setup and balance; “ninja walk”; infield “real world” demonstration; narrative long-takes; advanced extension pole  movements.

THE iPHONE FILMMAKER

A complete filmmaking course using only an iPhone – no other accessories! Watch me make a martial arts action short film. iPhone settings; “gimbal walk”; directing actors; full editing tutorial (FCP X).

PLANNING & PRE-PRODUCTION

Getting inspired, location research, budgeting, scheduling, and legal clearances. Avoid beginner mistakes!

IMPROVISED STORYTELLING

Create emotionally compelling stories without a script or storyboards. My unique “story blueprint” that anyone can follow.

BTS SHOT BREAKDOWNS

A database of individual shots explained in detail. My exact gear settings, shooting techniques, and creative thought process.

The Gimbal masterclass

You’ll get access to my super in-depth course teaching my signature gimbal movements. You want to know how I get those smooth shots? Here’s the answers!

+ A COMPLETE FILM PROJECT

 

LEARN HOW TO MAKE THIS FILM FROM START TO FINISH

This intermediate-to-advanced project will take your skills even higher!

Watch me plan + execute a 5 day shoot. I’ll handle challenging situations like waterfalls, moving vehicles, live animals, and a crowded cultural festival. See how I create complex gimbal shots and advanced scene transitions. Watch as I make mistakes and improvise my way out of them – the most important skill of all!

This is not sugar-coated theoretical filmmaking in a controlled studio environment. This is a crash course in exactly what it’s like to make travel films in the real world, without a script or crew. 

After this project you’ll be able to apply these skills and techniques to your unique filmmaking style.

Join me on a big adventure!
