Q. DO I HAVE TO BUY ALL SORTS OF FANCY EQUIPMENT FOR NONPROFIT FILM SCHOOL TO BE APPLICABLE?
Nope! You can learn all about the foundations of video-making and apply what you learn with the equipment you do have, even if that's only a smartphone or camcorder.
We do discuss the basics of what sets some cameras apart from others, giving you recommendations for if you're ready to purchase something new. If you want great audio, instead of “okay” audio, our recommendations will help you make the step up, but you certainly don’t need to purchase expensive equipment to make good use of everything you’ll learn.
Q. HOW LONG DO I HAVE ACCESS TO THE SCHOOL?
After enrolling, you'll have access to this course for 12 months.
Q. HOW DO I ACCESS THE COURSE?
You can access the course online, from anywhere, with your unique log-in (email and password) that you create.
Once an individual signs up for a Solo or Group Plan, you’ll get instant access to the course. For Group Plans, we’ll send you a unique access code for your additional users within one business day; they’ll use that code to create their own accounts (see more on Group Plans below).
Q. WHAT IS THE FORMAT OF THE COURSE?
The course is hosted on Teachable, with a video of one of our Professors teaching you as if you’re sitting in the same room. Besides, seeing your Professors proves that we’re real people :)
Each Course comes with it’s own Manual, which is like a “transcript” but it’s more valuable than that — it’s got images, room to take notes and it’s perfect to put in a 3-ring binder to reference often. Same goes for our Bonus Resources: print them off, share them with your team, reference them often, make great videos.
Q. HOW DO GROUP PLANS WORK?
Group plans are intended for one organization to purchase access to Nonprofit Film School for up to five users. The individual who signs up for the plan (the “Group Administrator”) will gain access to Nonprofit Film School immediately. Then, within approximately one business day, the Group Administrator will receive an email with a unique coupon code for the other four users to access to the school for $0. (Be sure they sign up for the “Group” plan and enter the coupon code when checking out.)
Each group member will have access to the school for 12 months after the date the Group plan was purchased by the Group Administrator, after which point the access to Nonprofit Film School will need to be renewed. Example: If a user creates their account 2 months after the Group plan was created, they will have access to the school for 10 months.
Group plan users must all have the same email domain to qualify for Group pricing.
