Video Tutorials on Caption Video Creation Media School launches a course on the creation of caption videos for social networks. Such videos get millions of views; they are short, dynamic, and can be watched without sound.

All course materials are presented in the most understandable and simple form so that even a beginner could produce the video. The course authors will explain all the aspects of the video shooting and editing (how to build a plot correctly, what music to choose, how to write captions).

After completing this course, you will be able to create your own caption video for social networks and tell your story with such a video.
