Learn how to edit cinematic videos

You got all those incredible shots but you don’t know how to edit them in a professional way? Let’s fix that!

Getting good shots is important. But unfortunately, that’s not all. A lot of what you see in my videos happens in the edit. I oftentimes fix issues with video my footage, I animate my shots, I add transitions and I make sure that the video flows well.

I learned all of that by watching random tutorials and trying things out by myself. So it took me a pretty long time to gain these skills. By creating this course, I want to give you a quicker way and a step-by-step guideline to learn video editing.


I already edited my first videos as a teenager. So I started early, used different video editors (Pinnacle Studio, Premiere Pro, Sony Vegas & Final Cut Pro X) and therefore gained a lot of experience.

Over the past five years I edited about 350 videos for YouTube and fun, while I also worked on full, one-man video productions for businesses in the travel industry. Due to Covid, I switched from full video productions to freelance video editing in 2020, and I was able to charge 400€/day for that.

So this course teaches you the skills to be able to do the same.

The Modules

#1 Computer Specs

In this module I explain what specs are important for your video editing machine and I also give you my recommendations on what to buy and why.

#2 Video Editor Overview (FINAL CUT PRO)

Knowing where you find all the settings, effects, scopes etc. Is crucial for a fast workflow. So in this module I give you an introduction to my video editing app of choice – Final Cut Pro X. Other video editors have the same tools, but you usually find them at different places and they are called slightly different.

#3 Optimized Media & Proxies

You can also edit videos, even in 4K, on slow computers. But to do so, you either have to create optimized or proxy media files from your original footage. Here I explain you exactly what it is and when and how to use it.

#4 Storage & File Structure

Over time, you will record terabytes of video footage. So you will need a lot of storage and you need to structure your folders in a way that makes you find everything easily. Also importing your footage into your video editor from specific folder structures can make editing faster. So here I show you how I handle storage and file structure.

#5 Editing

In this module I teach you my video editing workflow step by step. We’re starting with important shortcuts, how I arrange my clips in the timeline, how I cut to music, how I add animations, special effects and a lot more.

I also share with you how I export my videos for good quality on social media.

#6 Editing Transitions

Fancy transitions are definitely over-used. But the reason for that is that many people love seamless transitions. So in this module I show you how to edit transitions, so that they actually look good and not amateurish.

#7 Timelapses

Editing timelapses is a bit special, depending on how you shoot them. Especially if you shoot single photos (what I recommend for best quality), there are a lot of steps involved to bring it to life. In this module I show you exactly how I edit different kinds of timelapses.

#8 Audio

Audio is incredibly powerful. It can change the complete mood of your video, even if the clips stay exactly the same. Especially when to comes to voice, the audio is oftentimes more important than the video. In this module you’ll learn, how I edit and enhance voice, music and how I do my overall sound design with sound effects.

#9 Color Grading Crash Course

Learning how to color grade takes a lot of time and would be too much for this course. But it’s also an important part of the video editing process. So I included a quick crash course on color grading in this course as a bonus. Of course if you really want to learn color grading and create your own looks, definitely look into my color grading course or get the LWP all access pass to save some money.

Your Instructor

Pascal is a world traveler and video creator, originally from Germany, currently based in Thailand.

When he started creating videos, it was quite hard as quality gear was very expensive or not existent.

Today the problem is no longer the gear, but finding the right one and learning how to use it properly. So he made it his mission to teach people how to create great looking videos with affordable cameras and gear.

Slide 1

I was heading away on a trip and wanted to do more video instead of photo and so like alot of people I jumped onto YouTube for some pointers. As is typical with YT you are inundated with creators of different levels and after going through some who were just “plugging” their page all the time, did not sound confident, who did not produce good results or who were just bad educators I lucked out and found Pascal.

After absorbing hours of his quality content I wanted to learn even more and so signed up to his “Learn With Pascal (Full Access)” course and I learnt so much.
The content was delivered in the same way as his YT video’s but with more details and I have learned ALOT.

Definitely worth every dollar and if you really want to get the most out of your gear and make great content you have to learn from Pascal.

P.S I love the accent and the accidental swearing, it really makes the lessons more enjoyable.

“I viewed several of Pascal’s YouTube videos and became instantly engaged in his content. I then registered in one of the courses on his learning platform and again became so informed that I had to enroll in his entire “Learn with Pascal”package. This is a must-have platform of training to have access to–stop missing out!!!”

“This is a very helpful course. Especially the modules for shooting transitions and video editing were very helpful to me. I didn’t realize before, that it can make sense to do panning in every clip you shoot because maybe you can use it later for transitions. It was also very helpful for me how to put clips together, that they fit perfectly together. Even small things with maybe the steps from a person who is walking. Also, the video on how to do speed ramping was very well explained! I had a lot of problems with speed ramping before. But now, I think I understand it better and I am able to use it in my next video.”

“My wife and I are dedicated to improving our skills and Pascal’s courses have filled some critical gaps in our training. His modules dig deep where necessary, but the content is fun and interesting, in addition to being super easy to follow. Where other courses just scratch the surface across a broad range of modules, Pascal has effectively separated each discipline into affordable individual collections that truly make you a better creator. The content is worth 25x the cost. Can’t wait to continue working our way through his library!”

“Learn with Pascal really helped take my videography game to the next level.
There are
a ton of techniques that I learned from the course that only come with years of experience which Pascal has accumulated and shared with us here. The course is easy to follow and full of tips and tricks that do help in real-life situations

“I would recommend this course to anyone that’s looking to improve their videography skills or even someone who’s a total beginner and wish to learn.”

“If you’ve learned something or got inspiration from my YouTube tutorials, I’m sure that my courses will greatly benefit you.

I know from experience that it feels hard to invest in educational products instead of new camera gear. But one big reason of my success is that I constantly try to learn something new.

So by signing up for this course, you invest in something much more important than camera gear, which is YOU!”
