At one time, producing underwater video required a huge production budget and a roomful of expensive video editing equipment. Now all it takes is a video camera and housing, and a laptop computer.

Additionally, the avenues available for distribution of your finished video have exploded. Not only can you make and share DVDs with friends and family members, you can post video to websites such as YouTube, Facebook and Flickr.

The Underwater Videographer Course is designed to not only show you how easy it is to capture underwater video footage, but also provides an introduction to sharing your final video through a variety of outlets.
