We are so excited kick off DIY Video Camp!

I’ve been dreaming about a step by step workshop, walking you through the process of creating engaging and entertaining videos for YEARS!

In order to offer the best small group experience, we have limited this camp to just 16 people, BUT we are also offering an online version that can accommodate more students! . this camp is small and personal so we can meet your needs if you are a brand new beginner or have been making videos already.

Tickets to Video Bootcamp are available here- https://diyagogo.com/products/video-boot-camp?_pos=1&_sid=a440940e7&_ss=r

What is Video Bootcamp?- It’s a step by Step, four day workshop, walking you through how to create an awesome DIY video from start to finish! We will provide you with a piece of furniture to paint, basic supplies and detailed coaching so that by the end of camp you will have a finished video to post and share to our watch party!

If that’s not all, Dionne of The Turquoise Iris will be teaching how to run an awesome live on multiple platforms on Thursday!

Dionne will share tips for creating a fun live session and tell how this has become one of the most popular segments on her channel.

“Well Debi, I don’t like getting on camera, I’m tech challenged and shy!” So was I friend, so was I… If I can do this anybody can, and I’ll be here waving pom poms, showing you exactly how I do it.
