What is an Izzy Video Premium Membership?

It’s an excellent way to learn the fundamentals of video — how to shoot it, and how to edit it.

Izzy Video members get:

  • Instant access to a large library of training videos – More than 200 video tutorials that show you the fundamentals of video.
  • Two members-only episodes per month – I occasionally release free episodes, but members always get two members-only episodes per month in addition to any free episodes I release.
  • Higher-resolution videos – Most videos are available in High Definition format as well as the standard size.

Only $99 for a six month membership!

Get Instant Access to the Izzy Video Archives

The Izzy Video Premium Membership gives you immediate access to a large library of more than 200 video tutorials!

My video library will become available to you immediately once you sign up for a premium membership.

These are some of the subjects covered in the tutorials:

  • Composition guidelines such as The Rule of Thirds – Whether you’re a beginner or an old pro, this one simple rule can make a big impact on the imagery in your footage.
  • Lighting guidelines such as Three Point Lighting – This is the most fundamental of all lighting techniques. Every video shooter should know it, and many of my video tutorials show you how to create a three point lighting setup, why you might want to create it, and several variations such as short lighting, broad lighting, and contrast ratios.
  • Audio Fundamentals – How do you get good audio with your video? What kind of gear should you use? All of these audio questions are answered in my video tutorials.
  • Editing techniques – I show you how to create different effects in Final Cut Pro, and how to do color correction in Color. Although many of my tutorials show Apple pro apps from Final Cut Studio, even if you are on a PC and editing in different programs, many of the tutorials will still benefit you because the principles are universal, regardless of the platform you’re using.

Please note: The Izzy Video library of tutorials is separate from the stand-alone courses that I sell. The stand-alone courses (such as my courses on Final Cut Pro X) are not included with a membership.

With over 200 episodes in the video library, my video tutorials cover a wide variety of subjects. Here are some:

Camera Angle Panning Dolly Shots The Difference One Light Can Make
Close-Ups and Wide Shots Cut Away Shots Sound Options Intro to Key Lights – Positioning
Hard and Soft Light Channel Mixing Prevent Audio Clipping Light Modifiers

What people are saying about Izzy Video:

“As the owner of a small production company in Kansas, I can’t tell you how helpful your site has proved to be… especially for training my new employees. It is mandatory now that all of my help review your tutorials. They are very concise and easy to understand. Thank you and keep up the great work.”
– Scott U.

“Outstanding videos… best $ I spent so far this year.”
– John Steinbeck, ShoppingCzar.com

“Izzy Video allows me to review my skills and reminds me of techniques that I haven’t used in years…These short tips should be used in film schools – he states in 3 minutes what some professors take 2 hours to present.”

“These tutorials provide real world advice and examples that anyone can use to dramatically improve the quality of a production. The tips and tricks are things that the average person can pull off (some with a little more practice than others) without the need for expensive equipment investment. The time spent watching these tutorials will pay off with higher quality and greater awareness while behind the camera. Israel Hyman has nailed the style, content, and timing to make this series an award winner!”

“Izzy obviously plans his videos to give the most information in a short amount of time. Each episode has given me a lot of insight in how to take good video. I can also easily review a topic because of each topic being in a different episode. In other words, I don’t have to shuttle through a long show to find the topic I need to review.”
– username: Rob

“The show is educational, informative, humorous and entertaining to watch. The podcast is so well constructed with the content and of course visuals! If I were to create a podcast, I’d do it just like this. I learn something with every episode…not kidding. Hope you do too.”
– username: Warner

As an Izzy Video Premium Member, you’ll get a members-only RSS Feed which gives you access to the Izzy Video library. In addition, you’ll get access to the Members-Only page which has direct links to the video tutorials which you can download in your browser or save to your computer.

Members-Only Content

Although I occasionally release free content, I consistently release two members-only videos every month. As an Izzy Video Premium Subscriber, you will automatically gain access to these members-only tutorials as well.

Yours To Keep Forever

If you sign up for six months, download all the past tutorials, and then decide not to renew, you still get to keep the files you downloaded. There is no DRM (Digital Rights Management). They do not expire. All I ask is that you don’t share or distribute the files you have downloaded.

Zero Obligation to Renew

At the end of the 6 month subscription, you will receive an email asking if you would like to renew your membership. There is no automatic renewal. If you decide not to renew, no further payments will be taken.

7 Day Money Back Guarantee

Your membership comes with a full 7 Day Money Back Guarantee. If you sign up and then decide it wasn’t worth the money, you can get a full refund.
Joining is completely risk-free!

What Does It Cost?

The price to become an Izzy Video Premium Member is only $99 USD for a full six month membership. (By the way, after six months the price to renew is only $36 for an additional one year period.)

The membership fee is a one-time charge that subscribes you for the next six months. It’s NOT a monthly charge.
