A fun and concise look at filmmaking that emphasises not to be all about shiny tech for tech's sake
Indeed a Cinematic Masterclass. SPLENDID.
Again Phillip really gives you the nudge to believe you can do it.
Worth the course money for Phillip alone
As usual with Philip Supurb
What a fantastic course. I have completed a few online courses, and this is the first one that took me into situations that I actually recognised.
How to find a shot and light a sitting room? No one covers this, and yet it is precisely the situation you're going to find yourself in if you work in the 'real world'.
I really enjoyed this and it has really inspired me to get up and going again post-covid. Not only because I learned something from it, but also because, it reminded me that there are others out there, doing it on their own, and still making it work.
Nice one, Mr. Bloom ?
Fantastic course. Well designed and produced. I really enjoyed this!
Loved this. Learned so much in a relatively short space of time and feel so ready for a summer of video jobs now. Much appreciated!
Outstanding! Really enjoyable and I highly recommend anyone starting out to watch Philip's masterclasses.
Brilliant course! If you want to take your film making to the next level I'd highly recommend this course! Philip's teaching methods are fantastic, funny and very informative.
A very talented film maker with a lot of authenticity.
Absolutely fantastic! It feels very personal and "style-ish". I loved it.
I would say this course exceeds your expectations and changes your perspective.
It doesn't necessarily answer all of your questions. But it leaves you motivated and confident enough in what you might try to do as a filmmaker.
Many thanks to Philip, of course. Please keep doing more classes like this!
Very complete course
Excellent ,thorough and entertaining. Highly recommend Philip Bloom's Masterclass.
Comprehensive and Fun
What a wonderful master class. It is eye-opening and really focuses on the importance of building a strong foundation for film making. Each module has the precise information needed and that I was hoping to gain from Philip's perspective. The motivation and confidence I gained from learning the critical skills in this masterclass will surely help me with my future projects.
Awesome. Easy to watch, really enjoyed it.
Great follow-up course to the latest release 'Filmmaking for Photographers'
Thank you Philip Bloom! I wish I could show you the pages of notes I wrote while going through the course. I feel empowered and more confident to go out and try some new techniques. This course has definitely increased my knowledge of filmmaking. Now to go out and put it into practice!
This is a wonderful course for both beginners and professionals. I have been in the industry for about 8 years as an editor and cameraman and I find myself always learning every day and I have learned loads while taking Philip's Cinematic Master Class. My girlfriend is completely new to filmmaking and she was able to follow along as well. The information may be technical but Philip you really do a great job at breaking down all of the information in a way that is easy to understand for all levels. Thank you for a great Masterclass!
Thanks Philip it’s a great course, can’t wait for new series.
Having already completed the Filmmaking for Photographers course I was unsure exactly how much I needed to take this course. I'm really pleased I watched this Master Class. The class on Timelapse alone is worth the cost of this course. I totally recommend watching you will not be disappointed if you want to break into filmmaking or simply want to see how another filmmaker works. Bravo once again Phil!
Entertaining, education & motivation is a tough balance to strike. This course covers all of these in spades. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
Excellent master class. Thank you Philip Bloom.
A magnificent masterclass without a doubt, I have learned a lot and I love his work. His passion and effort in his work is well known. Thank you for making this knowledge accessible.

I love Philip Bloom's art of making films, maybe since his famous "Skywalker Ranch", eleven years ago... It's really a great course, full of many tips and tricks, made with heart, simplicity and beautiful human values! Thanks also to Sarah Seal and Julian Wakefield, his two very efficient assistants!
The best course I've ever had. I've learned so much and in such a fun and personal way. Simply incredible.
Great guy and enjoyable to learn from. A wide range of pertinate subject matter was expertly covered. The pace was just right for me.
Very useful course. Thanks a lot!
Beautiful journey through the cinematography world that I love. Thank You Philip Bloom, your crew and the MZed team.
I learned more about things I thought I knew enough about! Everything feels new now after years of current experience. This course holds so much value. Philip is legend in this field!
An absolutely brilliant comprehensive course for solo filmmakers. For the bits I already knew, it was still reassuring to know that I'm doing things a certain way, particularly as I 'learnt on the job'.
It's a really good mix of using your intuition / technical know-how / common sense.
I found it was in sync with the way I work.
Amazing series taking us filmmakers through Philip's process from A to Z. Even seasoned filmmakers will get some great reminders and tips for their process ...or at least a reignited passion for all the processes involved.
Lots to learn... Entertaining, informative and motivating!
Fantastic. Philip's teaching style is superb.
Fighting the urge to binge watch this is futile. Just do it, then rewatch in parts as you go on and make your own stuff.
Loved it, and I can't wait to go through it again and see what I missed the first time around.
Mucha información valiosa, aprendí mucho sobre el lenguaje cinematográfico que se debe buscar.
Philip Bloom's cinematic masterclass is exactly that, a masterclass. Not only does he walk you through the basics of getting started and gear but he also provides more advance information on crafting a story that gets the viewers attention.
This class is worth the price and Philip is an amazing, down-to-earth teacher.
Very good, for starting. Philip is as good of a filmaker as he is a teacher, and his course is a perfect overview of all the aspects of filmaking.
Really great course! He covers a lot of stuff, I thought the drone episode was the most useful but every episode had a lot of helpful info, I'd definitely recommend it.
A very good course. I really enjoyed it, and found a tremendous amount of useful information within it.
One of the best filmmaking courses out there!

Top notch! Well explained, but most of all, great practical tips to make stuff easier!
Extremely helpful course. This took my skills to the next level. Sometimes, you need things specifically told and taught. There are things that I just never would have noticed and picked up on without the help from this course. I'm making little cheat cards from the shot type/framing course that I can bring on the job so I never forget my new arsenal of shot types :)
Love it! So Happy to have purchased this course.
As a filmmaker of 20+ years, I found this class to be valuable refresher training. Much of it I already knew, but I learned a lot of valuable new information. For beginner and intermediate filmmakers, it's an excellent course for learning about the craft of filmmaking.
And Philip, I feel your pain on the reading glasses...I'm in my mid-forties, and nowadays EVERYTHING seems out of focus!
This course is REALLY well made and such an easy piece to follow. Phillip is a great teacher, and his videos are a wealth of knowledge. I did hear that he is working on a second master class and I am very much excited for it after finishing this one!
very informative, loved it
Great course. I really enjoyed Philip Bloom’s presentation style. It was entertaining and educational.
So much information, presented in a very good and entertaining (not stuffy at all!), also a lot of information for the whole process
Mr. Bloom has so much wisdom to share and he does it in his uniquely developed, famous style. It's such a joy to see someone teach a class who is not only a master at their craft but also so devoted to giving back to the community. His enthusiasm and love for filmmaking is contagious. You won't be disappointed.
Great course! Loved it.
You can spend years trying to gather the staggering amount of information in the class, or you can take the class and have Phillip just lay it out for you. Beautifully done.
I learned SO MUCH and will continue to re-watch these for years to come! Thank you!
It is great introduction to creating documentary style films. How to work with people. See behind the scenes with commentary. Recommended to everybody interested in filmmaking.
Absolutely fantastic - worth every cent. Mr Bloom is the real master. Can’t wait for the next course from him.
The class was comprehensive and enjoyable. It was truly going into the mind of a mentor.
Sonia S Williams
The next best thing aside from following Mr. Bloom around learning for a month.
This was a great course. It gave me a great refresher in filmmaking and gave new insight into techniques to utilize in production! It was well worth the subscription fee!
I liked it very much. Nice tricks and tips. Easy to follow and beautiful shots.
Philip Bloom's Masterclass has been an absolute pleasure to watch. You'll be hard-pressed to find such an insightful and honest course that's delivered by a film-maker of Philip's calibre. It really feels like a One-on-One Mentorship with Philip himself!
Whether you're a hobbyist or a seasoned professional, this course is a MUST for anyone interested in film-making.
What an unbelievably brilliant course for cinematography! Philip's Cinematic Masterclass is a must have for those seeking knowledge in the world of cinematography.
Philip Bloom‘s class combines high production value, great overview information, as well as a lot of look-over-his-shoulder-while-working content into a charmingly presented package in typical Bloom fashion. Great watch!
I had a great time watching all of these episodes. All the information was concise and well explained. I am happy to recommend to anyone with a camera.
Very useful tips and tricks, especially for those who are into documentaries.
Philips captures the pearls of film making and points out the reality of achieving perfection while simultaneously expressing what is practical.
Good courses. From preproduction to post, this course got a lot of information on how to enhance your footage.
I love what I do, creating films! This class helped me love it even more. Phillip takes you on a journey from A to Z. Extremely few classes are appropriate for beginners and those advanced. THIS IS IT!!! Got a new shooter you need to teach everything to but don't have the time- this is the class. Are you a seasoned professional looking for inspiration to elevate your creativity and brand- this is the class. Thank you Phillip!
Great course that reminds you of the basics and how to succeed in every kind of photo/video shoot you do. Especially appreciated the sections on interviews and the things to keep in mind when framing interviews. Kudos Philip!
Great masterclass! As an experienced independent filmmaker (not necessarily good) I have learned something new in every module. A lot of stuff I knew already but it was still good to refresh those and to see how others, in this case Philip, works. For me, the last module was the only one in which I didn't learned much, possibly because I use other software in post and I tend not to use third party solutions. Overall, I loved this course. Thank you Philip, thanks for sharing your knowledge. It was a pleasure to see how you work. Cheers!
Philip Bloom is very insightful and I liked how he went in depth about his decision making, camera, lenses, etc. He didn’t leave anything out.
I'm a big fan of Philip's work and this course gives a good overview of his thinking and process. The information is well-organized and presented in his winsome way. It's something I'm sure I'll watch again and again. If I had one complaint, it would be he title "Masterclass". To me, a masterclass is one that pushes an intermediate or advanced user toward being a master of their craft (which is what I was looking for). This is much more of a ground-up foundation that, while still of benefit to seasoned users, seems more geared beginners.
Too much money for MZed. Would not buy it without discount on black friday.
Nice way to start DSLR filmmaking.
Very practical. Useful tips and tricks. Overall a must see for any filmmaker! For more indepth training you should look at specific film, light, audio or directing courses.
Really good, and a nice fresher up for my skills! I only would've liked a quiz of some sort at the end of each chapter as a quick check on things that you should have picked up during the lesson.
