Who is Parker Walbeck and Why Did He Create Full Time Filmmaker?
Parker Walbeck is a very experienced filmmaker who does video for ages. [Less]
I think he gained around 500,000 YouTube Subscribers within the first 2 or 3 years, his course has more than 7,000+ students, and his Instagram accounts are literally on fire.
In the past, he even worked with Devon Supertramp and traveled all over the world creating video content for big name brands like Hyundai, LG, Huawei, Canon and more…
He created Full Time Filmmaker because he wanted to share all of his technical, creative and business insights. That content includes gear reviews, comparisons, tutorials, cinematic films and more.
WHAT’S INSIDE FULL TIME FILMMAKER?
In this section of the course, Parker Walbeck is sharing the 80/20 rule he uses to pick his equipment.
He spent thousands of dollars to figure out what’s good and what’s just hype or thin air. [Less]
- Things to Look for When Buying a Camera
- Things to Look for When Buying a Lens
- What Microphone Should You Buy to Get a Professional Sound?
This section alone was worth the price for me because, it saved me potentially thousands of dollars for testing new gear.
When you know what equipment you have to use to get good results with filmmaking you absolutely need to know how to set up your camera properly.
In this part he is not only showing you how to set up one camera but he’s showing how to set up specific models. For example, when you have a Sony A7III there’s a training for it. If you have a GH5.. there’s also one for it.
Next up you need to know the creative part of filmmaking. Like lighting patterns, movements & camera angles. That’s just the tip of the iceberg.
When I was looking around on YouTube to find the creative parts on my own I got stuck at this part every time because all the people who tell you how something is done.. aren’t good themselves. Even something basic like lighting setups can get really complicated.
In Full Time Filmmaker this is pretty straight forward. Even things like cinematic storytelling are covered in depth.
I didn’t want to think about editing for the longest time. When I filmed my first videos I tried to avoid editing like the plague. So I tried to do one take videos. Every time I did a mistake, I started all over.
It quickly became so time comsuming that I had to block entire days just for taking a 5 minute talking head video. Nowadys I can do that pretty much in a couple of minutes.
To be honest, I got better speaking over time, so I didn’t need to edit as much. Finally, I am not afraid of editing anymore because of the over-the-shoulder approach I have in the Full Time Filmmaker course tutorials.
