This is my first review ever on a course and if it weren’t for the fact that I’ve already referred four people to it, I probably wouldn’t write it. All I can say is five stars is not enough. I’ve spent thousands of dollars on video courses over the years knowing that it’s a skill I want to develop to create better and more engaging content on social media for my business. Every time I was left with more confusion and all but gave up on the possibility that I would ever be able to do it. That is until two days ago when I purchased this course. The content is packed with value, concise and to the point. You get an over-the-shoulder walk-through on editing your movie so you can actually use the recommended app/program for that. They don’t just give you definitions of different shots but show you what they look like, and how to make them yourself. They give you tons of suggestions at different price points for making your mobile videos and even show you how to use some of them. This really only scratches the surface of what’s inside the course. If I had paid $1000 for this course, I would have been overjoyed with the value and still referred everyone I know that is looking for video editing instructions to it. If you’re thinking that maybe someday, you might want to learn anything about editing videos, then get the course, you won’t regret it.

I find the course very useful for beginners or those who approach video making for the first time. It's very well structured and simple. I appreciate that the videos are short and pretty straightforward, which means that one does not get lost in the myriad of information we are given. There are plenty of practical tips and clear indications on the equipment needed to plan a shoot. I am only halfway through the course but I must say I am extremely satisfied! Thank you and take it easy Federica

Bought this course back in December 2020 when it was first launched I believe. I wasn't even looking for a course at the time but an ad popped up in my Facebook newsfeed and it looked interesting. I was making videos at the time for my social media and I knew they needed improving so I bought the course straight away. Matt's presentation skills are excellent and the course is well laid out and easy to understand and implement. There's everything you need in there to go from beginner to pro in a very short time... ...and there's new content being added on a regular. Couldn't rate highly enough. Cheers Matt and the team.

WELCOME ABOARD

What is Travel Film School

Travel Film School is the first Italian online platform to offer online training for documentary work, travel filmmaking, video editing and sound design.

It was first created by Ludovico de Maistre, producer and founder of Travel Media House, a documentary production company which has produced over 80 travel videos and documentaries in the past 5 years for brands and broadcasts.

Today the school is made up of 14 courses, and more than 300 hours of content. Over 25,000 students have enrolled in the Italian version of our Mobile Videomaking course.

Travel Film School has quickly become a benchmark in Italy for anyone wishing to learn everything about indie video production, video storytelling and video marketing.

Meet The Team

Matt Gorelli

Hey there!

I’ve been writing scripts, directing, editing and acting since my high school years.

The first couple of thriller-comedy short films I made back in 2010 were filmed with an iPod Touch, so it turns out I’ve been Mobile Videomaking all along.

Countless short films, two documentaries and one Film & TV Production degree later, in 2017 I won Best Short Documentary at Glocal Film Festival for my documentary on schizophrenic street artist “Cosimo”, now live on Amazon Prime Video.

After an internship as Assistant Editor at a documentary production company and a couple years of freelance work as Videomaker, I began working with Travel Media House, where I’ve been filmmaking, narrating a TV series and, recently, creating our brand new Mobile Videomaking course.

Some of the best choices I’ve made so far in my career have been taking time to improve my skills and joining a team of talented and awesome people (Travel Media House), and that’s exactly what you’ll be doing by enrolling in Mobile Videomaking, thanks to our intensive and constantly updated learning program, and thanks to our ever-growing Facebook community where you can share results, get feedback and begin solid collaborations.

Looking forward to seeing your results!

Ludovico de Maistre

Hey everyone!

I was born in Turin in 1984, I am an indie producer and documentarist.

I’ve been producing documentaries, travel videos and TV series for top brands, broadcasts and channels (RAI, Amazon, Canal+, Extreme Sports, Iveco, Piaggio, Dji, Lumix and many others) since 2009. In 2011 I founded Travel Media House, a documentary and branded content production company with a focus on travel stories and reportage.

I’m the producer, co-author and co-director of the TV series “The World in Slow Motion”, which airs every Sunday on Kilimangiaro (Rai 3, Italy) and is distributed worldwide by Off the Fence, one of the most important distribution companies in the world.

In 2018 I launched Travel Film School, an online teaching platform to share the procedure and secrets to become a documentarist and/or professional travel filmmaker. 

I’m the producer of this course, hosted by my friend and colleague Matt Gorelli. I came up with the idea for this course so to teach our students to promote their business independently and through the simple and intuitive use of their smartphone.

Frank Quaglino

Ciao,

I was born in Paris in 1994, and grew up in the United States and in Italy. I started editing gameplay videos in middle school, and began filming and editing ski videos with my first camera in high school. Me and my friends were trying to imitate the many ski films and videos coming out in those years - good times!

After high school, I decided to take a gap year, and that’s where my passion for travel began. That year I travelled to Hong Kong, Argentina and Australia, and I had my good old GoPro Hero 3 to document it all.

Throughout university, I worked on various projects with friends like short films and music videos, but I found my true passion in travel videos, and I soon started working at Travel Media House.

I’ve been working as a production and editing assistant ever since, collaborating with the talented crew here on incredible projects. I take care of the filming and research for our Mobile Videomaking course
