Remember when creativeLIVE launched earlier this month? There have been a lot of great courses since it launched, but I’m watching Vincent Laforet’s course, “An Introduction to HDDSLR Cinema” right now, and I gotta tell ya, it’s good stuff. It’s also free while it’s live.
If you’ve missed the first day today, it looks like they are doing a re-watch stream of the entire class tonight starting at 11PM ET. Laforet has got content going for the next two days as well, so you might want to shelve Photoshop CS5 for just a bit and tune into creativeLIVE to learn the ins and outs of your HDDSLR if that’s something you’ve been curious about.

Finally, if you can’t tune in this weekend, you can pre-order the video of the full weekend class for $79. If you wait until after the class is over on Sunday, it goes up to $129. Having watched it for the past few hours, I can assure you that it’s more than worth the $79 if you are new to shooting video with an HDDSLR camera – and there’s gonna be two more full days of content.
Over the past couple of weeks, we’ve seen a variety of online courses start up or add to existing learning resources.

Granted, this won’t be an exhaustive list of online training sites, so you can drop a comment if you think there’s something worthwhile to add. [Read more…]
