After a few issues with music licensing paperwork and artwork being sorted I am very pleased to announce the physical version of “Learn to shoot great 7D video with Philip Bloom (that’s me)” is now available to buy from the F-Stop Academy Store.
I personally am very proud of this product. An enormous amount of work went into it and I don’t just mean the large crew that helped shoot it in Sarasota, Florida. But the post work was epic and the logistics and admin that Den Lennie put into making it all happen.
To celebrate I have 30 25% discount coupons to go to the first people who email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of my dad…easy if you know my blog/ videos/ site.
Here are a few of the huge amount of great feedback we have had:
I got the digital download copy and it’s the most coherent, concise and informative video I’ve ever seen about filmmaking. I highly recommend it. Connor Rickman
“I was skeptical about 5DMkII workflow but when I watched the tutorial it helped me a lot to understand the workflow to editable format. It save me a lot of time rather than spending my time to do my own research and studies. Thank you for producing this awesome DVD!”
Fauzee Nasir-Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
“Been shooting professionally for over five years now, even attended film school back in the day and studied lighting under the amazing DP, Ric Waite. Without a doubt, the DVDs from Bloom & Den at the F-Stop Academy have been absolutely invaluable in making the transition toHDSLR shooting. Their frank commentary is priceless, like a private lesson from a truly masterful cinematographer- I can’t recommend them enough! If you want to improve as a shooter, I don’t care what level you are, these DVDs are the way to do it.”
Ashley Scott-New Braunfels, TX
“As a documentary videographer, the evolution of technology has been fast and furious. It’s often very hard to keep up with new trends and techniques while on a tight time/money budget. Phillip Bloom has done a great service to those of us who are trying to step up their game, and thisDVD is a great primer for those transitioning from prosumer video, toDSLR video.
The information in this DVD, and on the F-stop Academy site has revolutionized my workflow, stepped up my skill set and, simply made me more marketable in this fast changing industry.Thanks Phillip and Den!”

If you just got the camera – you really do need this dvd. It will save you weeks of internet research. If you already have the camera – get this and maximize your use of it!”
Jayse Hansen-Las Vegas, NV
“I have been a cameraman in broadcast & corporate television for close to 30 years and what is considered “The Standard” for video is now a moving target. Philip & Den are a huge resource for information and training with this new technology. They answer the questions that every cameraman, (old and new), wants to know about this emerging field.”
Jeff Cook-Tampa, Florida
“This DVD is a must for anyone using the 5D. I consider myself a guru and can figure out any technical problems, but the 5D was very complex and I still didin’t learn everything I needed to know through trial and error. This video shows everything you need to produced a solid video of any kind with the camera.”
Mark Wiemers-Troy, IL USA
“This is a great way to jump into using the 5D if you don’t want too much of the basic fluff of other training dvds.”
Sunny Lo-Oakland, CA
I had owned my 5D for several weeks before really using it. I read through lots of forums, trying to learn as much as I could. The DVD did in an hour what weeks of trolling through the forums did.
Chad Dyle-New Orleans, LA
“After Betamax, VHS, VHS-C, V2000, Video8, Hi8, Digital8, DV, HDV andAVCHD camera’s, DSLR is the next step for consumers to make film. Learn a lot within 1.5 hours and then step outside to make your own movie.”
Gert Kracht-Ens, Flevopolder, Netherlands
“THANK YOU Phillip and Den for taking the time to make a DVD based on the vast experience you have with the 5D MK2. You shared a lot and I learned so much! Your video will help take my career to the next level!”
