  1. Hi Simon!
    I’m watching your videos as many as I can, I’m studiyng video production and storytelling and I need to share this with you… you make me think it is possible to tell stories with little budget and great effort. Thank you for sharing knowledge, mate!

  2. What is name of the free editing software again? I missed it, but I wanna get started with video:) thanks!!!

  3. I still use the Panasonic GH2 and haven’t upgraded to the GH 4 or GH5.  I feel that I can’t justify that expense and feel that the craft of filmmaking and editing is more important that the latest camera gear.  I will upgrade in the future but don’t know when and am not bothered right now

  4. Question: If your camera only shoots 60fps at 720p, should I stick to 720p for the whole shoot or I can go back to 1080p for everything besides slo-mo?

  5. Hi Simon, what are the specs of the iMac you using to edit your videos? And which software do you mainly use?

  6. As great your tips are my god your voice is the most annoying thing ever !! its not your accent its legit your voice.. Anyways keep up the great work ! your doing an awesome job… But i think someone else should speak for videos cuz christ..

  7. Oh God! You’re doing Timeline based selecting? That would get way too cluttered for me. I prefer This Guy Edit’s style of Event Based Selecting. It’s what FCP was built for in the first place, and I’ve used it ever since I got into all this. But to each his own

  8. very good submit, i certainly love this website, keep on it
    It’s arduous to seek out educated folks on this topic, but you sound like you recognize what you’re talking about! Thanks

  9. Why would you add those black bars instead of droping your clips in a 21:9 sequence?
    When someone watches that on a 21:9 monitor, it will have black bars on left right, and up and down also.

  10. Hi there! I’m curious if the notes you show (written white text) is a font or if you’ve drawn them by hand on something transparant. For example @ 00:29 "2. ORGANISE". I’d really like to know 🙂

  11. Hi! Can You please make a video on editing in DaVinci Resolve 14(free version) on Windows?

  12. I edited for the first time but I realised that the editing station didn’t allow uploads to youtube

  13. What editing software do you use?  Good video thanks for sharing

  14. Amazing Tips! I’ll try your workflow right away, Simon!
    What about making an even more detailed video on your exact Workflow and how you organize your footage?

  15. It did just occur to me that one of your actors is a significant part in 2017’s Broadchurch. I did some research – was it Deon Lee-Williams?
