Once upon a time, there was an amazing, heart-centred entrepreneur.
She had big DREAMS and a strong MISSION to make the world a better place.
SHE HAD THE PASSION TO MAKE A REAL DIFFERENCE, BUT HERVIDEOS (OR LACK THEREOF) WERE HOLDING HER BACK FROM THE BIGGER IMPACT SHE COULD HAVE ON THE WORLD.
When she even THOUGHT about making videos, she'd shrink, she'd get suuuper nervous and the best parts of her personality disappeared in a puff of smoke.
She REALLY wanted to make videos, because they're the GREATEST way to EXPAND her kingdom, er, I mean, her impact–
BUT SHE WAS ALSO:
Afraid her message wasn't worth sharing.
Afraid she'd be boring.
Scared to put herself out there.
Scared of being judged.
Overwhelmed by tech.
Unsure of where to start.
Scared to look unprofessional in her videos.
Afraid no one would want to watch her.
Major eek, right?
Well you're not alone.
In the beginning stages (and without proper guidance), video can feel more like an OBSTACLE to the life + biz you want, rather than the PATH directly to your goals.
And you might even experience MASSIVE stress and uncertainty, because the learning curve feels sooo steep (and unattainable).
Video feels like a mountain of FRUSTRATION, STRESS and OVERWHELM staring you straight in the face.
(You feel like you Simply. Can't. Do. It.)
And even though this is real life, not a movie script, guess what...
Making simple + engaging videos IS POSSIBLE.
Letting your personality shine through in your videos IS ACHIEVABLE.
Getting new clients one video at a time IS YOURS IF YOU WANT IT.
You can SHINE in your VIDEO ADVENTURES, with a bit of help.
Let an ACTUAL filmmaker be your guide!
In case we haven't met yet (in person or online), I'm Sarah Michelle Brown. :-)
(Just call me "Sarah")
I'm a filmmaker, actor and entrepreneur.
I'm also a complete and utter NERD when my students start SHINING in their videos.
I literally do a happy dance whenever I help my passionate entrepreurs "get it".
#ForReals – my students have seen my happy dance more times than I'd like to count, lol.
Having been a film director for many moons, an important part of my job is to make sure that the person in front of the camera is as relaxed and confident as possible.
And it's the exact same thing for entrepreneurs.
If you've been awkward, scared and uncomfortable in front of the camera, it's not because you can't do this.
In fact, it's quite the opposite.
You CAN do this.
And you CAN do this WELL.
What's standing between where you are right now, and where you want to be, is being able to relax and to feel confident in your videos.
And that's where I come in.
I'm not only a filmmaker + actor... I'm also an INTROVERT.
I was terrified the first time I stepped in front of a camera, for real. And I sucked at it... on an actual film set.
The beginning stage was sooooo painful (and public)!
But I didn't let that Awkward, Uncomfortable, Sucking-at-it phase stop me.
Overcoming my own video fears, and knowing I can help you in a FUN way, are WHY I created the On-Camera Bootcamp in the first place.
It's time to make awesome videos so that your dream clients fall in digital-love with you and your biz!
As an award-winning filmmaker, actor (+ introvert), I've learned the secrets to:
CONFIDENTLY putting yourself out there.
Being more efficient when making videos (#TimeMatters).
To talk in a way that makes sense and isn't too wordy.
To be authentic and yet engaging on-camera.
Busting through your fears.
What is comes down to is this:
Video doesn't need to be an overhelming, scary chore.
Video is a powerful tool that TELLS a STORY, CREATES a CONNECTION and builds RECOGNITION.
Take THAT to the bank!
Over my many years infront of AND behind the camera, I've learned how to make that camera my FRIEND.
And you can do it too!
“Soooo beyond what I expected from a video training course! When I mustered up the courage to join I did so with a fair amount of kicking and screaming. I knew that I needed to up my professional game for my online audience. Trouble was, I’ve never enjoyed putting myself in the spotlight. Ever.
Thankfully, Sarah creates a safe place for even the most resistant of wallflowers like me. She knows how to tease out all of the awkward bits, knows when to encourage, and how to gently push when we need it most (but don’t actually know it yet).
Of course you’ll also learn how to improve video production quality using all of the tips and tricks that only Sarah can teach. If you’re on the fence about signing up right now, stop hesitating. Just say yes!”

Ready for the COOL part?
You don't need to be a filmmaker and an actor to make engaging videos for your biz.
All you need are the right tools + the right guidance.
And you don't need to go through the 15+ years of experience that I have under my belt, or invest the 10's of thousands of dollars that I've spent in theatre and film school in order to DO this.
Using my step-by-step process, you get comfy on-camera AND start making videos your dream clients will LOVE, in only SIX weeks!
It's all about taking this ONE BABY STEP at a time.
You can also go at YOUR OWN PACE. I walk you through the program for the six weeks from when you join us, but if life stuff comes up or your RESISTANCE kicks in BIG TIME (as it sometimes does), don't sweat it.
I'm just as hands on... whenever you start (or re-start) the program.
If you've had bad experiences making videos or are too intimidated to even start, get ready to have a GREAT time making videos! With me, making videos is about connection, authenticity and believe it or not, having FUN.

~ Liz Scully, rethinkretreats.com
Let's peek at your options:
You can choose to not make videos, and miss out on turning your clients into super fans.
You can try to figure it out yourself (painstakingly) over years, piecing together the tips you get from various video and on-camera sources (eek!).
You can start putting your videos out there without the proper feedback, support and advice from your very own filmmaker (oh my).
You can go on believing that you can't do this (who are you to shine on-camera?).
The funner, awesomer, more rewarding choice?
Join the On-Camera Bootcamp and start your adventure to becoming a (video) Star in your industry!
It is IN YOU to shine.
It is IN YOU to help your dream clients.
It is IN YOU to make an impact on the world.
It is IN YOU to create ah-mazing videos!
The On-Camera Bootcamp is a powerful makeover for your on-camera presence AND your videos!
For this level of video transformation, it's such a no brainer.
All you need to get started is either your smartphone or your webcam, so that you can make really simple video recordings.
All other tech is optional, and stuff you can build upon through the bonus section.
What results can I expect from the bootcamp?
Your full participation in the bootcamp gets you comfy and confident on-camera confidence!
You learn how to make your video LOOK and FEEL professional.
Make simple videos that you can post on your website and blog.
You get full library of tips and tricks in your arsenal that you can use for years to come.
So whatever you're not ready for now, it's there for you when you want to dive into that particular step.
How much time do I need to invest?
Like most things in life, you get out of the OCB what you put into it. I highly recommend that you do the course as I've laid it out.
One module per week.
Each week, you can expect to invest between 2-5 hours. It depends on how deeply you dive into the written part of the course (there is LOTS of GOLD in the Sweet Sheets) and how many takes you need to create your Video Missions.
Another course? Can I really DO this?
I know it's natural to have concerns. I've invested a lot of time and money into online courses myself. Plus I've been working SUPER hard to create a course that would deliver RESULTS.
Here's a GOLDEN part of the On-Camera Bootcamp: While it is designed as a 6-week program, you can go at your own pace.
And I stand by the power of this program.
Honestly, can you afford NOT to take the On-Camera Bootcamp? Think of all the time you save. You don't have to research the best camera, lighting, wardrobe, etc etc.
AND you've got me as your own personal filmmaker while you learn. #winning
And guess what.. Because I know it can be scary to sign up for a new program, I've added a 30-day, 100% money-back GUARANTEE.
HERE'S THE SCOOP: All I ask is that you watch all the training videos, and complete + send me all the assignments and Videos Missions. If we don't see a substantial transformation in your videos at that point, I'll give you a full refund.
Okay, that's the skinny on the On-Camera Bootcamp.
I created this course with your journey + results in mind.
(and sprinkled in lots of love, fun and empowerment)
The only question that remains is:
Are YOU ready for your videos to SHINE happily ever after?
