Today I give you an in-depth review about the Full Time Filmmaker Course by Parker Walbeck. If you?re wondering what results you can get with it.. here is what I achieved?
I took my YouTube videos from this:
The best part is I was able to achieve these Results shortly after taking the course. The big question you probably have is:
Is Parker Walbeck?s Full-Time Filmmaker course worth it?
So a couple of months ago I have seen Parkers free Webinar on filmmaking and was totally surprised by the value I got.
If you?re like me and want to start to make videos or even make money with it, this is going to be exciting for you. And if you?re a veteran I think you?ll love this one too.
Now let me pull back the curtain for you and show you exactly what you can expect when you apply the knowledge from the course on your videos.
Who is Parker Walbeck and Why Did He Create Full Time Filmmaker?
Parker Walbeck is a very experienced filmmaker who does video for ages. He quickly built a huge following on social media because he always delivers high-value content.
I think he gained around 500,000 YouTube Subscribers within the first 2 or 3 years, his course has more than 7,000+ students, and his Instagram accounts are literally on fire.
In the past, he even worked with Devon Supertramp and traveled all over the world creating video content for big name brands like Hyundai, LG, Huawei, Canon and more?
He created Full Time Filmmaker because he wanted to share all of his technical, creative and business insights. That content includes gear reviews, comparisons, tutorials, cinematic films and more.

Here you can see the over the shoulder teaching style
Immediately after signing up you get instant access to the course. It is hosted on teachable, which means that you can even use an amazing smartphone app to consume the content on the go.
In this section of the course, Parker Walbeck is sharing the 80/20 rule he uses to pick his equipment. He spent thousands of dollars to figure out what?s good and what?s just hype or thin air.
Here are my top 3 trainings out of this section:
- Things to Look for When Buying a Camera
- Things to Look for When Buying a Lens
- What Microphone Should You Buy to Get a Professional Sound?
This section alone was worth the price for me because, it saved me potentially thousands of dollars for testing new gear.
When you know what equipment you have to use to get good results with filmmaking you absolutely need to know how to set up your camera properly.
In this part he is not only showing you how to set up one camera but he?s showing how to set up specific models. For example, when you have a Sony A7III there?s a training for it. If you have a GH5.. there?s also one for it.
Next up you need to know the creative part of filmmaking. Like lighting patterns, movements & camera angles. That?s just the tip of the iceberg.
When I was looking around on YouTube to find the creative parts on my own I got stuck at this part every time because all the people who tell you how something is done.. aren?t good themselves. Even something basic like lighting setups can get really complicated.
In Full Time Filmmaker this is pretty straight forward. Even things like cinematic storytelling are covered in depth.
Ouch? I hated this topic.
I didn?t want to think about editing for the longest time. When I filmed my first videos I tried to avoid editing like the plague. So I tried to do one take videos. Every time I did a mistake, I started all over.
It quickly became so time comsuming that I had to block entire days just for taking a 5 minute talking head video. Nowadys I can do that pretty much in a couple of minutes.
To be honest, I got better speaking over time, so I didn?t need to edit as much. Finally, I am not afraid of editing anymore because of the over-the-shoulder approach I have in the Full Time Filmmaker course tutorials.
The good part about the editing section is, that he showcases multiple editing software. I use Adobe Premiere Pro for my videos, but he also has tutorials on Final Cut Pro.
My favorite training in this section is definitely the time remapping because this allows you to create amazing speed ramp transitions.
The Business ? How To Get Your Investment Back As Soon As Possible
Now it?s time for the best part.. you became a master at your craft. The next step is to make money with it. Because in the end, you?ll ask yourself: Is becoming a filmmaker worth the effort?
The possibilities are endless. In FTF you learn how to make money with filmmaking through weddings, real estate gigs, music videos, commercials and more.
You could also start a successful YouTube channel like me. If you know the ins and outs of filmmaking, becoming an influencer is just a game of knowing who you want in your audience and constantly pumping out great videos.. but that?s another topic.
You can also become an affiliate for FTF. Just refer like 5 people or so to this quality course and it basically becomes free.

Bonus You Get For Choosing To Sign Up With My Link
Well, I want to be honest with you because I think transparency is important when doing reviews like that. I became an affiliate for the Full Time Filmmaker after seeing huge results in my videos.
I was complimented all the time that my videos look amazing so I started to tell people about the course ? but was never compensated for it.
When I found out that Parker launched an affiliate program, where I could earn some money on the side while telling people where I got these crazy results from (what I already did) I jumped right in.
So to be clear, Parker Walbeck did not pay me upfront or gave me the course for free to write this post. I bought it at full price with my own money. Today I?m simply sharing my experience so you can become good at making videos too.
However, I get an affiliate commission. This is at no cost to you. In fact, the opposite is true? Let me introduce you to my ?ethical bribe?.
