Kara’s – Behind the Scenes Guide to Creating a Vlog
What You’ll Learn In This Course
The only program I have ever used to edit video is Adobe Premiere Pro. I personally think it’s the best video editing platform, but my opinion is obviously biased. Either way, I’ll be teaching you how to edit videos exclusively on Premiere Pro.
Premiere Pro has thousands of features, and to be honest I don’t know how to use half of them. If you’re looking for a comprehensive guide to learning Premiere Pro, you’re in the wrong the place.
However, if you like my editing style and you want to learn the step by step process I use to create the videos you see on YouTube, this course is for you!
We publish a new video every other day (most of the time) while traveling full-time. I’m going to show you my workflow for efficiently creating beautiful videos without all of the unnecessary information you find in other tutorials.

In case you didn’t find this course through our YouTube channel, allow me to quickly introduce myself. In January 2016, my husband and I moved out of our apartment, put all of our things in storage, and bought a one way ticket to Japan to start a trip that would turn into a three year adventure of full-time travel around the world.
Although we both had limited experience creating videos, during the first year we committed to capturing and sharing our adventure through daily(ish) videos on our newly created YouTube channel. We had no clue what we were doing when we first started out…
What Makes This Course Different?
I’m going to be completely honest with you. You can probably find most of this information somewhere on the internet for free. In fact, I’ve spent the last 3 years teaching myself from scratch with free tutorials online.
My goal in this course is to take everything I’ve learned over the past 3 years and put it in an easy to understand step by step guide so you can learn in 1 week what I’ve spent the last 3 years learning.
Plus, after creating over 500 videos, I’ve developed my own style. If you’re here because you like my editing style and you want to see exactly how I create it, this is the only place you can find it. 🙂
