***APPROVED for 1 hour CPEU credit by The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics***

Are you tired of seeing videos online and wishing you had video content to share too?

Do you find yourself wishing you had the resources to hire a camera crew and video editor, only to realize those options are too pricey and often hard to find?

Does the thought of producing your own video overwhelm you?

I know exactly how you feel! I felt the same way when I first decided to add video to my blog. I wanted to dive in, but had no idea where to start!

For years, I watched countless video "how to's" and still felt confused. Each tutorial seemed to assume a basic knowledge of video editing I simply didn't have.

Finally, I teamed up with a professional video editing duo who walked me through the fundamentals, coached me on my videos and gave me the foundation to start producing the type of video I could be proud of. And that, my friend, is what I want for you, too!

To help you get started TODAY, I'm giving away a FREE TIP SHEET of the 5 THINGS TO CONSIDER BEFORE CREATING VIDEO. It's packed with helpful info to get your mind set to begin this video journey. Simply scroll down to the curriculum below to access your free copy.

While you're looking at the curriculum, be sure to check out the SNEAK PEAK I've made available for the lecture on CUTTING. This is just one of the basic skills you'll need in producing video. And of course, there's still so much more to learn!

If you're a registered dietitian or blogger who wants to get started adding creative, captivating and customized video to your online communications and portfolio of services, this Video Basics course is for you!

"I’ve been wanting to create recipe videos for about 2 years now, but feeling scared prevented me from taking action. I had so many questions — what equipment do I need? What needs to be in my videos? How in the world do I edit? It all felt so overwhelming!

After realizing that video isn’t going anywhere and I better jump on the video train, I started doing some research on how to make it happen. In the past few months, I’ve been getting tips from all over the internet but it felt like I was consuming too much information with little action.

Luckily, I took this course and that all changed! After watching this course, I immediately wanted to take action and actually had the tools and tips I needed. In fact, halfway through watching the course, I pulled out my camera and started creating a video!

While I had some knowledge of video and editing before taking the course (thanks to the countless hours of haphazard internet research), I had several lightbulb moments while going through the modules. This course presents the info in a well-organized fashion without bogging you down with too much, and it's easy to understand without being condescending. I also love the Facebook group, so I can learn from others' experiences and can discuss video-related topics with people who have similar knowledge as me.

Now it takes me a few hours instead of a few days to create a video, and I couldn't be happier!! I want to shout my thanks from the rooftops for this course!! THANKS, REGAN!!!!" ~Meme Inge, MS, RD - Living Well Kitchen

"As a blogger, it’s seems like every week we have to teach ourselves yet another skill and the idea of learning how to shoot video was overwhelming to me. Having video on your blog and social media platforms is no longer optional, but rather a necessity. So I was thrilled that Regan developed this e-course. It’s a terrific way to get acquainted with video basics and by the end of the course, you’ll feel confident to take that first step." ~Deanna Segrave-Daly - Teaspoon of Spice

"Regan has always had a way of seeing a real need for dietitian and healthy food bloggers and figuring out the best way to meet it. She has absolutely done it again with this Video Basics e-course! She takes the daunting task of learning one more new thing and makes it easy to tackle. Her simple but thorough how-to lessons from equipment set-up to post-production gave me that 'I can do this' confidence, and left me excited to jump on the food blogger video train." ~Gretchen Brown - Kumquat
