Educational Resources for Cinematographers and Filmmakers

Hey I'm looking for opinions on the best educational resources for cinematographers and filmmakers. I know masterclass has some good information but I also recently came across Shanes Inner Circle.. Anybody ever use shanes inner circle and could give some insight on it? I see that it's only 17$ a month which is not bad but are there any other classes like this out there that are worth mentioning? Trying to weigh all options before I subscribe to the inner circle. Thanks.


While you're waiting for the reviews to roll in, you can't go wrong in retaking Trial and Error With What You've Got 101. Come back here for some honest criticism after fishing something and I bet you'll have probably learned quite a lot.

I am rather new to video, but I love it. Not a pro, like others here. Perhaps a beginners perspective will help you.
I found Alastair Chapmans videos on to be helpful for understanding Sony cameras and log footage. has many helpful videos. has some great videos on color correcting and grading on youtube. Really clear and easy to follow.
So does Matt Johnson,, especially if you like Sony.
Phillip Blooms reviews are fun and I learned a lot about cameras from them.
Those really helped me get started with color and shooting.
Even though many are about resolve, which I am not really using yet. I find Premiere Pro is great for many cool features, but it is hard to navigate.
I have been using the new Sony Programs catalyst prepare and edit. I really like them they are very easy interfaces and handle the Sony formats easily. I have been color correcting in them easily and having a great time.

You have already found one of the best No Film School! I check it everyday and often get inspired. Thank you to No Film School!

Ah very nice. Yes in a matter of fact I shoot on the Sony A7sii so I'm really looking forward to checking out the Sony Program catalyst, never heard of that one. I have been watching Wolfcrows videos on youtube but will also check out matt johnson. Yes I also use premiere pro and find a lot of people using resolve for color correcting which is unfortunate. Awesome videos!
