Frequently asked questions

Read below for some frequently asked questions about Cinema Mastery. If you have other questions, feel free to email any time.

Can’t I just learn this on YouTube?

Yeah, you sure can. There’s tons of videos out there on YouTube that will teach you video tips for free (including my own YouTube channel). And it’s definitely a good place to start. But at some point you’ll realize you’re not getting the answers you need. And if you’re like me, you’ll get sick of having to search for everything. In Cinema Mastery, you just get it handed to you. Everything you need to know. Laid out in an easy to follow format. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. At the end of the day, it’s not about the info. It’s about how you get the info, and how fast you get the info. Think this way: you might be able to get your cousin’s hand-me-down 90s minivan for free, or you could pay to drive a brand new Ferrari. They both get you to the same place eventually. It’s your choice.

What if I can’t afford it?

Let me just give it to you straight. You can’t afford to not be able to afford it. The funny thing is, us humans believe we can’t afford things until we realize how bad we need them. Then suddenly we figure out a way to come up with the money. It’s why some people are still living with their parents, but watching Netflix on a 70" flat screen TV. Instead of saying, "I can’t afford it", ask yourself, "How can I afford it?". There are some people that pay me over $1000/mo to learn this exact same information, and they get way more hands on help. But it’s worth it to them, because they know it’s not a cost, it’s an investment. And they’re making back way more than what they pay every month. So if you stay where you’re at, nothing will change. But by investing in yourself, you have the power to change your situation.

How do I access my products after I sign up?

Once you sign up, you’ll get an email in your inbox with a link to create an account on our online portal. All you have to do is make sure you use the same email address you purchased with, and when you log in you’ll have access to all of your course content right there on the site. You can log in on any computer, and even on mobile devices or tablets anytime, anywhere, as long as you have an internet connection.

Will this work for beginners?

Definitely yes. I honestly believe that if you’re brand new to videography then this course will give you the best fighting chance you have at being successful at it. And that’s because this course isn’t actually aimed at beginners. This course is actually an advanced look at cinematography, but it’s written in a way that is clear, concise, and easy to understand for someone just starting out. There are other courses out there that are made for beginners, and while they do a good job getting you started, a lot of times they skip over important things you need to know. But not Cinema Mastery—this is by far the most comprehensive cinematography course out there and gives you everything you need in an easy to digest package.

How much time does the course take?

The Cinema Mastery course has over 15 hours of content in it, so technically that’s how long it takes to watch all of it. But you can take it at your own pace. So if you want to sit down and watch it all in a weekend, you could. But I really recommend taking the time to get out and practice what you’re learning, because ultimately that’s where you’ll gain the most experience.

What is the success rate?

So this is a hard one to quantify since everybody has a different idea of what success means to them. But I will say that we’ve received hundreds of positive reviews from our members and seen some amazing success stories come out of this course. And even though we offer a 30 day money back guarantee, only a very small percentage of people take us up on it, and those are usually people that just aren’t in a good financial position and plan to come back later. Like anything though, if you’re willing to put the work in, you’ll probably get good results, so your work ethic is more important than anything else.

What if I already bought Lighting Secrets?

Some of you might have already bought Lighting Secrets, which is included in Cinema Mastery. However there’s still so much more content inside of Cinema Mastery that will help you create cinematic looking videos, outside of just lighting. So if you liked Lighting Secrets, then you will love Cinema Mastery. Plus you get access to the members community, and all the other courses and bonuses when you upgrade to the full course, so it’s still definitely worth it.

How long do I have access?

This offer is for lifetime access, and we stand by that. So you’ll never have to pay a license fee or a subscription to get access to the courses. You’ll always be able to login anytime to access them, whenever you want.

Can members ask you questions?

Yes, I’m actually really active in our members’ Facebook group, so you can ask any questions you have there. Plus, we have a lot of really smart members in there too, so you can get the help you need. So the Facebook group is the best way to ask me questions if you have them, and I’m usually pretty quick about responding.

Other questions?

Send us an email at and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.

What's my investment?

Even if you're a beginner, you've probably invested hundreds—if not thousands—into cameras, lights, and other gear. The tools are important, but knowing how to use them will make you a master. The value of Cinema Mastery could be worth thousands or even hundreds of thousands to you in the long run, but your investment is only a fraction of that.
