    I took this breakout thinking it would be a fun little thing to do! It has rocked my socks! I absolutely love it! I make little videos of and for my family, and it really is something awesome- it records that moment, but more than just that, I have the record of how my little guy sounds, all his little mannerisms, who he IS in motion, not just that still moment. I still love taking pictures, but now I get even more to add to it! This breakout was originally purchased for my personal use- but now that I am done with it, I am looking to include it in my business as well! And Kim & Amy were FANTASTIC! If they ever offer a workshop, I am hoping to take it too! Thanks Kim & Amy!

    The breakout I’ve been searching for! I took a course in beginners DSLR video at a local well known community college earlier this year, I walked out half way through the first class as the instructor was so bad. They replaced the instructor for the next round and I tried again and although it was much better and I learnt a few things it really wasn’t what I wanted. I wanted to learn about camera angles, settings, editing, storyboarding, planning, I wanted to get my teeth stuck into a project and then to get feedback on it. The course cost me over $300 and I don’t feel I learnt much at all. This breakout cost about $70AUD and it has EVERYTHING I was searching for and more. Amy and Kim have covered the best bits and added even more content with the closed Facebook group with live editing videos and question and answer sessions or just a few new tips. It’s a great space to share your videos as well as everyone is learning. Definitely worth the investment, wish they had made it before I wasted my money on the community college and 8 weeks of my life! Thanks ladies.

    This breakout has been amazing! I have learned so much in just a few days and I finally learned the basics of Premiere Pro. I have already made 2 short videos (watch here: using my new acquired skills! I know I still have much more to learn about shooting and editing videos, but this breakout has made me conquer my fear of using Premiere Pro and that is one of the programs I have been wanting to learn to use is a long time. Kim Bear and Amy Cyphers have gone above and beyond all of my expectations for this breakout. They have even offered a few additional tutorials while this breakout is live! If you are not sure if you will like this breakout, I hope my review help you decide to purchase it. You won’t regret it!

    Hey Everyone – this course is just perfect if you are a beginner, intermediate or even advanced. I have been shooting fusion films for the past 6 years and I learned so many new techniques from shooting to the final edit that I just can’t wait to add to my workflows. This break out is just so easy to follow – you’ll fall in love with motion ❤️

    There have been so many good breakouts and workshops that I should have reviewed but I just couldn’t not take the time to rave about this one. Like most people here I picked up a camera because A) I’ve always loved photography and B) I wanted to document my families life. If you are only documenting with stills you are missing out. This breakout has opened my eyes to a whole new way of documenting life. I went from never using premier pro to just finishing a short film from our most recent vacation. Amy and Kim have put together an amazing step by step “how to” on everything from gear, filming, editing and downloading your finished product. If you are sitting on hours of family videos and don’t know what to do with them like me, you have to buy this breakout! There is just no reason not to.

    I bought my camera 2 years ago to video my parents and other family members. I didn’t know how to edit or even make a decent video so I put it off. My dad and husband passed away within the last 18 months and my mom just turned 86. When I saw this breakout I had to get it. Amy and Kim are great teachers and have added so many things to the breakout like Periscopes that I keep missing but have been able to catch later. You will be sorry if you don’t buy this! An added bonus is getting to see all the participant’s videos.

    I’m in the live breakout now (join us – Kim & Amy’s generous involvement and input is comparable to a workshop!). They have blown me away with their amazing content and attention to detail. This breakout is an incredible value for the amount of content included. Kim and Amy give you all the tools and beautiful inspiration you need to start you on your journey with DSLR video. I’m so excited to “see” in this fresh new way, stretch my camera and expand my photography skill set. If you’re thinking about venturing into video, drop what you’re doing and get this breakout. You won’t be disappointed!

    I’ve just finished watching Photography in Motion break out and I love it so much! This breakout session is exactly what I needed! With its visually friendly PDF, and detailed editing videos, this breakout is jam-packed with amazing information! This Breakout has sparked my inner creativity and direction in an entirely new way.

    I would highly recommend this breakout to anyone that wants to get into videography. Thank you, Amy and Kim!

    For over 3 years I have wanted to learn video. Finally last year I made a leap (okay maybe it was a small hop) and I “learned” video. As much as I loved the mess that I created, life got ahead of me and I stopped learning. This breakout inspired me to try again. I have learned so much by reading and watching the videos that I am sure that 2017 will be full of videos of boys and I can not wait to add it to my list of services for my clients. Thank you Amy and Kim for giving us everything there is to know. I know your heart and soul was put into it. If there ever was a time to buy a breakout, this one is it!

    Hey everyone! I am in love with this breakout because it truly helped me to conquer one of my biggest fears: Premiere Pro. I have literally dragged my feet for so long! Kim and Amy made that part really easy and I was in and out super fast with lovely storytelling video in no time. I learned how to add music to my videos, how to time the progression with the music, and also how to cull, cut, and put together my movie clips. They also give you so many tips and tricks for stabilizing your camera without breaking the bank as well as answered a million questions I didn’t even know to ask before I read/watched the breakout. Video requires a slightly different thought process than images alone, and it can be really daunting when you first try to make the jump. Over the past year I have I spent hours watching youtube videos on Premiere, but quickly became overwhelmed and frustrated because I wanted to make a storytelling home movie and not a feature film, and so many tutorials cover things that are not relevant to what I wanted to accomplish or are so complicated I finally gave up. Amy and Kim understand what a transitioning photographer needs to know and explain it all in language that a photographer understands. It was such a relief!! Thank you, Kim and Amy!
