About The Class


What’s the difference between a videographer and a true cinematographer? How can a single shooter successfully capture a complete wedding story? Join filmmaker Alfio Stuto for a three-day introduction to the wedding cinematographer’s mindset and toolbox. Alfio will cover everything you need to know about video storytelling, post-production workflow, attracting clients, and growing a business. You’ll learn how to choose the equipment right for you, from lenses to lighting equipment, and beyond. Alfio will share the one-of-a-kind techniques he’s developed over a decade of success as a cinematographer, including how to capture a live event through moving, evocative imagery that will last forever. By the end of this course, you’ll have the skills you need to tell a compelling, emotional story through video, with results your clients will love.

    I'm sure Alfio is a great guy and does great wedding films but he is not a teacher. I have been watching this series and even skipping around trying to find some content that justifies what I paid for this course, but it's just not there. Don't get me wrong, I have bought several Creative Live courses, like Ray Roman's course, Scott Robert Lim, and Jasmine Star and others and have always felt like I got what I paid for, but this guy, while he may be a good film maker he is not a good teacher. Maybe if you know absolutely nothing about wedding film making, you may get a little something out of this course, but but you'll have to sift through hours of hem hawing around to find them. again, good guy just not a good teacher.

    This "class" is AMAZING. So much information packed into the hours! Alfio is a relaxed and fun "instructor" that you can tell has a lot of passion for what he does. Worth watching for sure!
