This is an ongoing class that is learner-driven and based on students progressing independently of each other at their own pace.

Class experience

Discover how to capture gameplay and make it awesome. Learn how to add music and in-game audio, voiceovers, play around with editing software, add your own branding, and much more.
I have been a professional video editor for the last 19 years and a gamer for the last 25 years. Teaching my own boys about video games and some of the basics of video production is one of the most fun things that I get to do. My goal is to keep things relaxed and make sure that students can learn without losing sight of the fun of gaming and video creation. As a parent I fully appreciate how "gaming homework" could be a cause of tension or exploited as a loophole if there are existing limits in place. Outside class time work should be about 30% gaming and 70% editing.
If the student streams on Twitch/YouTube etc they are probably already familiar with how to bring their footage over to their computer. 

If the student already has a preferred video editing software that is great! If not, I recommend starting with DaVinci Resolve because it is very high-end but offers a free version that has most of the functionality that students will need.

Finally, video files start to get large rather quickly and they will accumulate as students do more video work. I do recommend getting an external hard drive so that they are not filling up a family computer hard drive. This is not necessary, but it will help avoid a surprise situation down the road. Look for USB 3 and a size of 1TB or more. For students recording gameplay on a PC (or Mac) I recommend having something like OBS Studio set up to record straight from that PC on to an external storage device.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Two pieces of software that I list below are entirely optional. DaVinci Resolve is a video editing software available from BlackMagicDesign, regarded as a professional standard for decades. They offer a free version of their highly regarded software and I recommend it regularly to students who do not have their own video editing software. OBS Studio is a free screen recording software that makes game capture really simple. It has a very active development community and since it is open source, has remained free.

The majority of students want to make montages of themselves playing games like Fortnite or Destiny. These are shooter games that by their very nature do depict shooting, guns, grenades, explosions, and shooting at other people in-game. I personally will not be showing any footage from any game rated higher than T for Teen (I mostly play Destiny 2) but I cannot fully control what kinds of other games or content other students are allowed to play or what they discuss.

For over three years now, I've been sharing my knowledge and passion on Outschool, teaching about topics that fascinate me. My journey began with classes on video editing for gamers, and since then, I've expanded my curriculum to include a broad...
