Kara's Behind the Scenes Guide to Creating a Vlog

Follow me in this step by step video guide and learn exactly how I edit our videos for YouTube

If you're trying to learn video editing online, you're probably in one of two categories:

Category #1: You have no clue where to start.

Category #2: You're growing increasingly frustrated by trying to piece together knowledge from 100's of random blogs and videos around the internet.

If this is you, progress can feel painfully slow at times, and no matter how hard you try, your videos just never turn out as good as you envisioned before you sat down to start editing.

Trust Me. I Know How You Feel!

As a self taught video editor, I battled these exact same problems. It's taken me almost 3 years of daily editing/learning to start creating videos that I'm truly proud to show off.

When I first started out, all I wanted to do was sit down behind another vlogger and watch over thier shoulder as they edited a video. This would have saved me so much wasted time and headache!

That's why I made this course: so you can watch over my shoulder as I teach you step by step how I edit our vlogs.


You Have What It Takes! Imagine if...

...You had the ability to create videos you were proud to show other people.

...You no longer had to wonder what goes on behind the scenes of creating a video that people actually want to watch.

...You could stop wasting your time watching 100's of mediocre online tutorials and learn everything you need to know to create a vlog in one place.

After completing this course, you will be able to create beautiful videos exactly like the ones you see on our YouTube channel.

Your Instructor


In case you didn't find this course through our YouTube channel, allow me to quickly introduce myself. In January 2016, my husband and I moved out of our apartment, put all of our things in storage, and bought a one way ticket to Japan to start a trip that would turn into a three year adventure of full-time travel around the world.

Although we both had limited experience creating videos, during the first year we committed to capturing and sharing our adventure through daily(ish) videos on our newly created YouTube channel. We had no clue what we were doing when we first started out...


Fast Forward Two Years:

  • We have created over 500 videos.

  • Our videos have received over 30 million views.
  • Our YouTube channel has almost 200,000 subscribers.
  • We won a Shorty Award for the best travel content creators on the internet.
  • And we now make enough money from our YouTube channel to continue traveling full-time.

Trust me, this sounds as crazy to me as it does to you! I truly can't believe the life we get to live because we started creating videos a couple years ago.

What You'll Learn In This Course

The only program I have ever used to edit video is Adobe Premiere Pro. I personally think it's the best video editing platform, but my opinion is obviously biased. Either way, I'll be teaching you how to edit videos exclusively on Premiere Pro.

Premiere Pro has thousands of features, and to be honest I don't know how to use half of them. If you're looking for a comprehensive guide to learning Premiere Pro, you're in the wrong the place.

However, if you like my editing style and you want to learn the step by step process I use to create the videos you see on YouTube, this course is for you!

We publish a new video every other day (most of the time) while traveling full-time. I'm going to show you my workflow for efficiently creating beautiful videos without all of the unnecessary information you find in other tutorials.

The outline below shows you the exact lessons you'll be learning in the course.

What Makes This Course Different?

I'm going to be completely honest with you. You can probably find most of this information somewhere on the internet for free. In fact, I've spent the last 3 years teaching myself from scratch with free tutorials online.

My goal in this course is to take everything I've learned over the past 3 years and put it in an easy to understand step by step guide so you can learn in 1 week what I've spent the last 3 years learning.

Plus, after creating over 500 videos, I've developed my own style. If you're here because you like my editing style and you want to see exactly how I create it, this is the only place you can find it. :)

What Happens If I Don't Like It?

Even though people have been asking me to make this course for a long time, it took Nate (my husband) a very long time to finally convince me to sit down and create it. My biggest fear is that people won't feel like they got enough value out of the course.

I would never want to take someone's money if they weren't happy with the course! So, if you decide it's not for you, just let me know in the first 30 days and I'll gladly give you a full refund!
